The Speaker of Parliament, Anita Among, has cautioned Members of Parliament against opting for budget hotels in Rwanda as they prepare for the upcoming East African Community (EAC) games in Kigali.

According to Among, all participating MPs have been allocated a daily allowance of $720 (equivalent to sh2.7m) to cover various expenses, including accommodation.

“I encourage MPs to represent Uganda with discipline. You have a daily allowance of US$720; sleeping in a US$20 room is unacceptable for a Member of Parliament. Represent us well, don’t compromise on your living conditions,” stated Among.

Among emphasized that MPs residing in inexpensive hotels not only tarnish the image of Parliament but, more significantly, of Uganda.
