The state minister for finance in charge of planning David Bahati commits that the government will pay off tobacco farmers their monies by the end of this month.
Bahati made the commitment in Parliament in a response to a concern raised by Buhaguzi county Member of Parliament Daniel muhairwe Mpamizo on how tobacco farmers in Bunyoro region were living miserable lives after Government failed to pay their money yet parliament passed a supplementary budget of 3 billion shillings .three months to settle their claims.
Speaker Rebecca kadaga tasked the minister of finance to explain where they took the money .
Agago woman mp Franca Akello said it has been a habit of government to put parliament on pressure to pass supplementary budgets but it becomes a problem to implement it.
