MPs oppose funding for presidential initiative on model villages

Legislators on the Budget Committee have opposed a proposal to provide additional funding to facilitate the presidential model villages’ project in the next financial year.

The chairperson of the Committee on Presidential Affairs, Jesca Ababiku, who had on Thursday, 28 April 2022 appeared before the Budget Committee to defend the proposed sectoral budget estimates and unfunded priorities for FY2022/23, laid a request seeking for an additional Shs14.2 billion to effectively facilitate the 27 model villages in the country.

However, the Budget Committee that was chaired by Ignatius Wamakuyu Mudimi, was not pleased with the proposal, saying it is a duplication of programmes, considering that government is in the pipeline to implement the Parish Development Model (PDM).

“The committee wants us to allocate more money to State House to facilitate the 27 presidential model villages, yet the President is implementing the Parish Development Model.
