Speaker Kadaga disagrees on paying OTT for Members of parliament
The speaker of parliament Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga has disagreed with parliament paying the OTT and data for Members of parliament.
Parliament is set to spend at least 16,560,000 million shillings per month in provision of internet and over the top taxes (OTT) for about 460 members of parliament on their IPads.
The bidding notice indicates that MTN will provide a 5GB monthly bundle at Shs30,000 and Shs6000 OTT tax for each MPs’ device per month meaning that Parliament will spend Shs36,000 for each MP per month.
However, the speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaga says that she is not aware of the contract signed between parliament and MTN to provide data and OTT to Members of Parliament.
