Ntungamo Municipality MP, Gerald Karuhanga yesterday advised Centenary Bank, to return to the Parliamentary Commission, Shs 29 million that was deposited to his personal account last month.
The money was given to all legislators as facilitation for ongoing consultation on a bill tabled before parliament by Igara West MP Raphael Magyezi.
The bill seeks to, among others, amend Article 102 (b) of the constitution by removing the 75-year age limit on persons intending to contest for the presidency.
However, a number of opposition legislators have rejected the money branding it a bribe.
In line with their argument, Karuhanga told journalists at Parliament that the money is evil and using it for any activity tantamount to fraud.
He added that with the alarming state of healthcare services, education and public service, the government shouldn’t have prioritised the amendment of the presidential age with such a huge expenditure.
A total of Shs 13 billion was given out under the arrangement.
In 2013, a section of MPs returned Shs 5 million that was given to each legislator to consult on the Marriage and Divorce Bill 2009.
