Ugandan legislators plot to raise their salaries

Lawmakers are plotting to move a motion recommending to raise MPs salaries and emoluments. If the plan goes through, this will be another burden on the taxpayer who already pays MPs handsomely. Reliable sources in Parliament say MPs are planning to raise the matter next week when Parliament debates the budgetary allocations to the Parliamentary Commission.
