Sheema District Woman MP Hon. Jacklet Atuhaire Rwabukurukuru has returned UGX 20million to Parliamentary Account.
Hon. Jacklet said having received the controversial 20 million as added in the recent supplementary budget, she has decided to take heed to the voice of reason from Elders, mentors and some of her voters, and has, thus today tasked her Bankers (Centenary Bank) to refund the money to the Parliamentary Commission Account in Bank of Uganda as provided by the Clerk to Parliament on 22/04/2020.
“It is unfortunate that the country is currently at war with one of the most dangerous enemies against our lives, the coronavirus (covid-19).
I also recognise the need to support government in meeting it’s fair share across all fronts (security, health, and social services/welfare).
Having received the controversial 20 million as added in the recent supplementary budget; I have decided to take heed to the voice of reason from Elders, mentors and some of my voters, and have, thus today tasked my Bankers (Centenary Bank) to refund the money to the Parliamentary Commission Account in Bank of Uganda as provided by the Clerk to Parliament on 22/04/2020.
I continue to share the little I have with the people of Sheema District like i have always been doing. Soon will bring to the task force my contribution to the struggle in Sheema. There fore, i urge you to follow the Presidential and MoH directives during this dangerous moment.
Let’s continue to share ideas on how we can support each other within our own means to making this country safe for everyone. Coronavirus is real and it kills.
Stay Home, Stay Safe, let’s save each other’s lives,” Hon. JACKLET ATUHAIRE RWABUKURUKURU said in a statement.
Meanwhile a supporter has paid a tribute to Jacklet’s leadership as below;
“Hon Jacklet, Your leadership qualities challenge others to give their best performance. You never shirk from your responsibilities and maintain the composure that is required in the current trend of politics!
The enthusiasm you bring in your work culture is something that cannot be taught or developed.
You truly deserve all the success you have; you have earned it with hard work. You have raised the benchmark with your quality of work and service. Sheema feel privileged to have you as a leader of our time.
Your innovative ways inspire many [even when a few make jokes about then] to reach new heights. Your phenomenal contribution and accomplishments make you unique in every sense.
You are our perfect catch that other Districts would like to snatch. We recognize your dedication and commitment towards us. Your perseverance will be rewarded!
Thank you for being the Pride and Joy of Sheema District and indeed a Great Leader of our time,” Malidadi Gift wrote.
