VIDEO: Abiriga says he needs seven years to pay off debts

Arua Municipality MP, Col Ibrahim Abiriga has said he will serve only one term if Parliament accepts his proposal to extend the tenure of MPs and of President Museveni from five years to seven years.

Speaking to Nile Post the eccentric NRM legislator said seven years are enough for an MP to pay off personal debts and then engage in development projects.

"For the two years so far I have spent in Parliament, I am still servicing the debts I incurred during campaigns and now I am left with a debt burden of Shs 41 million," Abiriga said. See Video
