Government has this afternoon Tuesday tabled a request to Parliament, to borrow Shs1.8 billion to cater for the funeral expenses of the Late Speaker Jacob Oulanyah.

The request has been presented by Minister of State for Planning Amos Lugolobi tabling a statement on Statutory revision of the Budget of Vote 104 (Parliamentary Commission ) for FY 2021/22 by Shs1.8bn to facilitate burial expenditures for late Rt Hon Jacob Oulanyah.

According to Parliamentary Pensions (Amendment), it requires that 30% of the gross annual salary of the Speaker or Deputy Speaker who dies in office shall be used towards the funeral expenses.

In a statement released today by Minister for the Presidency, and also Chairperson of the organizing committee for the burial of fallen Speaker Jacob L’okori Oulanyah, over 2.5 billion is to be spent, an amount that left Ugandans wondering why all that chunck of money.

“Members of the public need to know that the Speaker of Parliament is 3rd in rank in the country’s leadership and he deserves such a befitting burial, which anyway is legally provided for. Therefore, I would draw your attention to the burial activities planned for and agreed upon rather than to dwell on discussing the budgets.” Babalanda explains.

She called upon the public to stay united and calm; and to follow the security guidelines to be issued as they observe and celebrate the final journey of “our dear friend and colleague.” an accessible web community
