Members Uganda Young Democrats (UYD) have castigated their Opposition MPs for returning the sh29m that was recently wired to their accounts to carry out consultations.
Yesterday, a section of Opposition legislators returned the funds meant to facilitate consultations on the lifting of the presidential age limit, alleging that it was a bribe to weaken their position to oppose the amendment.
UYD secretary general, Charles Wasswa, said the Opposition could have used the money to strengthen the anti-age lifting campaigns, instead of doing posing for the cameras when some activists go hungry and have no rent for their offices.
