The Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga has faulted a section of Members of Parliament for signing for allowances even when they have not attended plenary and committee sittings.

According to Kadaga, several MPs lack ethics and integrity and are corrupt as they sign for committee money for oversight visits and don’t go, while many come to parliament, sign for attendance and leave parliament without debating.

Kadaga was today speaking at the Launch of the Parliamentary Forum on ethics and integrity at the Parliamentary conference hall.

She says MPs should live as leaders and people of integrity and not to be seen involved in corrupt tendencies.

The chairperson of the new forum and former Minister of Ethics Nsaba Buturo, says the country is losing its moral values as MPs, Ministers, and members who are supposed to be morally upright are misleading the public.

The Parliamentary Forum on ethics and integrity is expected to take the lead at Parliament in looking at moral standards, ethics and keep the country and leaders in check by establishing policies and guidance in regards to issues of integrity.
