In the picture above, it’s one of the two Mercedes Benz S500 cars that parliament procured from the United Kingdom (UK) for speaker of Parliament Anita Among and her Deputy Thomas Tayebwa. The second vehicle is expected in the country before the end of the week.
Parliament is reportedly spending UGX2.88Bn on acquiring the two vehicles inclusive of flight charges. This implies that each vehicle will cost UGX1.44Bn.
The purchase of these vehicles has met a backlash from some govt officials and the public describing it as unnecessary expenditure given the difficult economic times
