MPs claim Ministry officials are crybabies
Members of Parliament on the agriculture committee of Parliament have described the technical staff of the Agriculture ministry as “moaners”.
This, the MPs said last week, has led to failure of recruiting staff needed to offer practical advice to farmers to boost agricultural output and increase the farmers’ income.
Ms Harriet Ntabazi, the Bundibugyo District Woman MP, said: “The technical team keeps complaining of low funding of agricultural activities yet they wait for Parliament to set activities, budget for them and also give them the money.”
Ms Ntabazi said the ministry budget cannot be increased due to duplication of activities and failure by the technocrats to defend it when Parliament tasks them.
