On the 18th of February 2020, the Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon Rebecca Kadaga handed over a cheque worth UGX 114, 250,000 to the popular dance group Triplets Ghetto Kids. This follows a pledge made by the Members of Parliament in December 2019 at parliament’s end of year party, that each of the members would contribute after the UGX 250,000 to save the Ghetto kids house located in Makindye.
Speaker Kadaga while handing over a dummy Cheque to the Ghetto lashed at some media personalities who had at the start of this year claimed that Parliament had failed to honor its promise.
Ms Jane Kibirige (Clerk to Parliament) confirmed that the MPs had raised a total of UGX 114,250,000, of which UGX 100 million would clear the standing arrears and the remaining UGX 14,250,000 would go to support the Ghetto Kids well-being.
