Parliament of Uganda, through its director of communication and public affairs, Chris Obore, has dismissed a pay slip whose author(s) claim that Nakawa West MP Joel Ssenyonyi earns millions of Shillings and donates a good amount of the same allowance package to National Unity Platform (NUP) principal Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. 

According to the emoluments pay slip allegedly issued by Parliament on May 31, 2022, Ssenyonyi, who is also the Chairperson of Parliament’s Committee on Commissions, Statutory Authorities and State Enterprises (Cosase),  takes home a little over Shs110m in allowances every month.

Of this money, Ssenyonyi, who also serves as the NUP Spokesperson, reportedly donated Shs15.8m to Bobi Wine in the month of May 2022.

But according to Obore, the pay slip in question is fake and has been fabricated by those keen on tarnishing Ssenyonyi’s name.

The spokesperson of Parliament added that the figure indicated in the impugned pay slip was above what anyone earns from Parliament every month.

“This document is fake and treat it as such. It’s intended to malign Hon Joel Ssenyonyi. No MP gets such money in parliament,” wrote Obore.

Ssenyonyi himself has come out to rubbish the pay slip in question as fake. The Nakawa  West legislator termed the fabricated pay slip as a tool of propaganda, and suspected that the corrupt he has been grilling in the Cosase Committee could be fighting back.

“These propagandists are not smart at all, at least they should have got the spelling of my name right as they do their forgery,” he responded to the fake pay slip shared widely on social media.

“If this is being done by the people we’re exposing in Cosase, too bad for them because I’m not about to stop!”

The shocking allegation on Ssenyonyi’s salary and allowances came days after it emerged that the Parliamentary Commission had increased allowances for MPs. (Read Story Here).
