The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga has cancelled the decision for parliament to pay OTT tax for MPs.
This comes after the story attracted the attention of the media on Wednesday.
Notices awarding Telecom Company MTN the contract to pay for MPs data and social media tax have been pulled down from Parliament’s notice boards where they had been pinned.
The notices indicated that MTN had beaten Africell and Airtel to win a contract that would take effect on 1st July 2019 and would benefit all the 458 legislators.
MPs were to be given data of 5GB every month plus 6000 OTT tax which would cost the tax payer an extra Ushs 200m.
The decision has since steered debate from the public, Members of Parliament and activists.
When www.mknewslink.com visited the place, the notices were nowhere to be seen as of Thursday morning.
