Parliament Commissioner and Member of Parliament for Nyendo-Mukungwe county Mathias Mpuuga has said that the position of Uganda in service delivery and development amongst its East African neighbours is laughable.

Mpuuga made comments during the two-day workshop on Alternative Budget Priorities for FY 2024/2025 at Imperial Royale Hotel.

The Workshop kicked off with the swearing-in ceremony of the new Shadow Cabinet, which was overseen by LOP, Hon Joel Ssenyonyi.

While appraising Opposition Members of Parliament on Program-Based Budgeting as the best approach to resource allocation, Mpuuga castigated Uganda’s lack of proper allocation of human resources and finances.

Uganda an example of the Standard Gauge Railway, Mpuuga said that whereas our counterparts in Kenya and Tanzania have made strides in the SGR, Uganda is still stuck in reverse gear, resorting to rehabilitating the old meter gauge, and again failing miserably at it.

“Even with the old railway, we bought automobiles that do not fit, imagine that money wasted. As a Ugandan, if you go to Kenya today, you will apologise for being Ugandan,” he added.
