Members of parliament and UPDF officers are among several other government employees who have not been paid for the last two consecutive months according to the reports.
Some members of parliament who preferred not to be named confirmed the the development stating that they have been checking their bank accounts but invain.
“All emoluments have been put on a stop for now and everyone is wondering what is happening,” one of the MPs said.
The affected emoluments include inland travel, which includes visiting constituencies and monitoring service delivery, allowances for travel abroad as well as sitting allowances.
Each MP is entitled to 50,000 shillings for each committee sitting and 100,000 shillings for each plenary sitting.
“They said we are not the only affected group. The UPDF and other government agencies are facing the same problem, there is no money,” an MP said.
The source added that it is the issue of lack of funds which resulted to the non-operationalisation of some of the new districts and respective administrative units including new municipalities.
It is also said that the crisis led to the suspension of posting new Resident District Commissioners who were appointed by the President in June.
UPDF spokesperson Brig Richard Karemire has however dismissed the allegations as false alarm stating that UPDF has been paid promptly.
“A very big laugh. How can we have a crisis in the first quarter?”The Ministry of Defence always promptly pays soldiers their emoluments,”Brig Karemire said.
Members of parliament is one of the government that costs tax payers a lot of money due to increase in number of legislators and the huge allowances each take home.
