MPs Force Chinese Firm to Cough out 26 Billion Shillings


In an unprecedented development, Chinese firms bowed to pressure from legislators and refunded 26 billion shillings of money meant to compensate those affected by road works; money they had diverted to fixed deposit accounts to accrue interest.
The parliamentary committee on commissions, statutory bodies and state enterprises chairperson and bugweri county MP Abdu katuntu confirmed the development to NBS, leaving only one of the implicated firms in arrears as the committee delivers the 10th parliament’s first major success story.
