IT IS no news that Members of Uganda’s parliament are to donate part of their January salary to help facilitate the Cranes while at the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.
This news comes in after speaker of parliament, Rebecca Kadaga directed the Clerk of Parliament to deduct UShs 500, 000 from each Member of Parliament as a contribution.
The total amount to be collected from parliament will be Sh215m.
This money will help to facilitate the national team while in Gabon in a tournament starting this Saturday 14th January 2017.
This move comes days after Ecobank kickstarted a fundraising campaign this week to mobilize funds to facilitate Ugandan Football team.
The aim of this Campaign is a long time course that will range to support Cranes even after Gabon Tournament.
