Tayebwa wants malaria funds to reach affected communities

Addressing the Parliamentary Forum on Malaria at the members lounge today, the deputy speaker said that the practice of spending money on food and drinks in lavish hotels must stop so that all the money from donors is focused on fighting malaria.

We need to see a wave of that money being trickled down to the people because I get concerned when I see many workshops in lavish hotels. If you are handling malaria what are you doing in Serena Hotel? Whether it comes from Washington or WHO headquarters and what, you came to fight malaria, why do you buy me a plate of food at 120000 Shillings in a lavish hotel when that money could be used to buy mosquito nets?””Tayebwa wondered.

He asked the Members of Parliament to track the expenditure on the money they appropriate for the fight against Malaria. He said that malaria has negatively impacted the economy of Uganda because families spend 3.9 percent of their income on fighting it.
