The president of Uganda, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, is very disappointed in the Members of Parliament who took the 20 Uganda million shillings yet the country is in such a crisis.

Museveni says it is morally reprehensible for MPs to give themselves money for personal use when the country is in such a crisis, and he doesn’t accept it completely. The president says that MPs have now entered themselves into a trap and the best way out is to donate the money to the districts where they come from.

His Excellency Museveni further reveals that he heard that some MPs went and bought things which he condemned saying that they ain’t purchasing officers of the state.

The head of the state informed the MPs that this is public money, not personal money, and thus apprised that if any of them used the money wrongly he/she has to pay it back with his/her salary, as it will be sorted out by the Auditor-General.

Mr Museveni also warned the MPs and Ministers who interfered with the government’s war on corona virus through distributing the things they bought because the country is in an emergency and he doesn’t know how were these things distributed, and the structures they were using in distributing them.

Lastly, the president stressed that these are serious issues and political leaders should be perfect examples and that it’s the reason as to why MP Zaake Francis was arrested. However, the president was baffled on why they arrested Honourable Zaake for interfering with anti-corona virus wars and then left those of NRM including Ministers who are purchasing food and collecting people.
