Following the Uganda state house budget, President Yoweli Kaguta Museveni gave out Shs5 billion in cash and pledges between July and October last year but the opposition say such move gives the incumbent an unfair advantage in the election.

The sum includes Shs741 million that Museveni handed out to the small scale entrepreneurs in cash while on his anti-poverty tour across the country and Shs4.3 billion in pledges.

However, pledges of livestock, motor vehicles, land and farm implements, etc. are not included in the pledges amount.

The spokesperson for the opposition FDC party, Wafula Oguttu has described the Museveni’s donations as “unfair” and accused President Museveni of “using the law to break the law”.

Criticism from the Forum for Democratic change (FDC) has come after National Resistance Movement (NRM) legislators passed record supplementary budget of sh 602 Billion from sh 80 Billion budget.

Ogutu said that the move “is totally unfair. Why does he have to ask for more money for donations during campaigns? This is the money you see him giving MPs. They approve more money for donations today, the next day they give NRM MPs Shs20 million each for campaigns. It is illegal.”

Democratic Party flag bearer, Norbert Mao, has also blamed Uganda parliament, accusing the house for being Museveni’s arm to the extent that parliament doesn’t champion for the citizens.

“They tried to force the district of Gulu to divert funds to fulfill Museveni’s pledges during my tenure in office but we refused. his donations are not a part of consolidated fund.” Mao said.
