    Odonga Otto Back to Ordinary Life, Nolonger a VIP

    Odonga Otto Back to Ordinary Life, Nolonger a VIP
    • July 15, 2021 • 3 years ago

    Former Aruu County MP, Samuel Odonga Otto has now returned to the ordinary way of living, a lifestyle he abandoned 2 decades ago when he was voted into Parliament by his people.

    He has been used to living life on the fast lane for all these 20 years of being in the Parliament of Uganda and has not known any suffering as far as finances are concerned.

    ? Yeah... receiving over 20 million UGX per month as salary for an individual member of Parliament is really a big deal in Uganda and we can locally use the "you have arrived" statement to correctly describe you 

    Odonga not only enjoyed his salary but was also entitled to big fat allowances such as travel, communication, transport, health insurance and therefore did not need to touch a single coin from his salary.

    So what happened to the good life Otto was living 

    Odonga Otto after being defeated by independent candidate, Christopher Komaketch who garnered 3374 votes more than him in the recently concluded elections lost his parliamentary seat in January.

    This immediately sent him back to poverty, but one thing for sure is, he is not as poor as you may think but with all the money required by one to invest in a political campaign in Uganda, he must have felt a pinch of poverty after losing his Juicy parliamentary seat.

    What kind of life is Odonga living today 

    He is now one of us, a simple ordinary man and this was shown yesterday when he footed all the way from Entebbe to INTERPOL in Kololo, Kampala.

    Yes, the man used his footshbishi (legs) to walk the long hectic journey on the streets of Kampala and said after leaving Kololo, that he was still going to foot back home all in the name of saving his children from hunger.

    He said he has 3 cars at home but they are all useless at this point because he has failed to obtain clearance for them, given that he is now powerless as an ex-MP. He further notes that he doesn't even know who is providing the clearance on vehicle movement in the current national lockdown.

    Reactions from people 

    Some people were in doubt of Odonga's walking saying that his shoes were too shinny to have braced that long journey while others welcomed him to the ordinary section of life.

    Mr David Bahati, the Minister of state for trade , industry and cooperatives, differing from the ordinary persons, suggested the ex-MP to get him self a brand new pickup at just 150 million.

    The way he said just 150 million ? is what is still sending shockwaves through me. The Minister later deleted his comment after realising it was insensitive.
