Uganda Debt Network to Govt Over Luxury Vehicles

Ugandan NGO advocating for pro-poor policies, threatens to take Ugandan government to court over purchase of expensive cars for Cabinet ministers

The Uganda Debt Network, a NGO that advocates for pro-poor policies, has threatened to drag the Ugandan government to court over the purchase of expensive cars for Cabinet ministers.

The Network’s Patrick Tumwebaze points out that, "We want to use the courts of law and demonstrations to send a message to the public that they deserve a responsible government."

Tumwebaze says that the country’s infant mortality rate is at 39 percent, clean is accessed by 54 percent and 40 percent of the budget is foreign-funded.

“It's not logical to spend on luxuries," maintains Tumwebaze.
