  • Total costs. The national assembly plans to spend Shs67.7m on burial expenses for each MP who dies.
  • Daily Monitor learnt that currently, Parliament has only one service provider, Uganda Funeral Services, and wants to add “at least two more in the pool.”
  • Gomba District Woman MP Sylvia Nayebare supports the proposal. She says Parliament should be able to bury its members if not for anything but a show of togetherness.

PARLIAMENT. Death always comes at a cost not just in terms of the emotions it evokes but in actual money spent. While the end is the same, the cost of the funeral will always vary depending on one’s status in society. The higher the status, the more the money that will be spent on the funeral.
