Security forces have advised Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi, also known as Bobi Wine to focus his efforts on legislating for his constituents rather than his proposal for better remuneration of their officers.
Bobi Wine early this week said he will soon table a motion seeking for improvement of the welfare and general remuneration of the army and police officers around the country, arguing that the “little” pay has left many of the officers disgruntled.
However security forces - police and the army say their interests are well represented by respective ministers and MPs.
The UPDF spokesperson, Brig. Richard Karemire asked the Kyadondo East legislator to focus on matters concerning his constituents and spare the army.
“The Hon. Minister of Defence and Veteran Affairs with his colleagues supported by the 10 UPDF Members of Parliament are handling our interests in the house to our maximum satisfaction,” Brig. Karemire told the Nile Post.
“Hon Kyagulanyi should, therefore, better be advised to concentrate on the well -being of wanainchi (civilians) in Kyadondo East Constituency.”
When contacted for a comment on the same, police spokesperson, Fred Enanga told Nile Post that the force is represented in parliament by the Internal Affairs Minister who can handle their issues.
“That is parliament business but if anything comes up, we have the Internal Affairs minister to handle our interests,” Enanga said.
