“The question of the day is, why pay more taxes when there is no accountable for what has been so far paid in the past?!” Winnie asks.

The Kasese woman lawmaker adds that the citizens need accountability in form of service delivery so that they get the confidence that taxes are worth citing that he breach of trust is what is causing this whole debate and it is worth it.

“Ugandans now know what they are really worth and are ready to demand for what is due to them.” She added.
