An alliance of civil society organisations in Uganda has opted to take legal actions against the parliamentary commission with an intention to recover the money illegally given to MPs last month.

Uganda Debt Network (UDN) director of programmes, Martha Nonjobe, says that as CSOs they will file a petition in the constitutional court requesting the court to declare that the money was issued illegally because it was never approved by Parliament as required.

Nonjobe emphasises that they will appeal to the court to issue an order to be directed to the parliamentary commission to recover the money.
