Our MPs are fast becoming leeches

It’s absurd that MPs are spending billions of shillings to benefit themselves when the rest of the country is rotting away to the dogs. Yet when the President comes up with a strategy to help the entire nation, they are the first to oppose. Take the Karuma Construction project.
Leaders should begin to think of the nation ahead of their own interests.
When there is a proposal that benefits parliamentarians, they will pass it without question. From the Shs103 million for cars to Shs30 million for a vehicle in the 8th while in the 7th, each MP got sh20m. Now the Shs36 billion coughed out from the Treasury to construct a five level parking yard for MPs, this is too much.
