Members of Parliament have expressed mixed reactions over the budget read by the Minister of Finance Planning and Economic Development Syda Bbumba with other viewing it as a substantially well thought out budget while other viewed it as one failed to address certain fundamental concerns of Uganda.
Bbumba has just read the budget which reveals that Uganda’s dependence continues to go down as this years Uganda will finance 75% of its budget.
Hardly two years ago, Uganda had a budget where it depended on donors to finance almost half its budget.
The Member of Parliament for Erute South, John Odit says the budget was read but he nothing said on addressing the challenge of corruption yet it continues to be one of the aspects the challenges that require immediate attention of the government.
The MP for Makindye West Hussein Kyanjo says he is happy this budget has more money allocated to the agricultural sector and increases salaries of teachers which he says is a positive aspect about this budget.
The State Minister for Primary Health, James Kakooza says what delighted him about this budget is the fact that Uganda will be able to fund 75% of its budget which is good for the country.
