Members of the 9th parliament have today received the long awaited ipads.
The 9th parliament is the first beneficiary of the E-governance system that was launched in 2012.
While presiding over the function, the speaker of parliament Hon. Rebbeca Kadaga noted that the money used to buy the ipads was obtained from the parliamentary savings.
Parliamentary Commissioner Emmanuel Dombo, who is Bunyole East MP, explained that they procured the IPADS through the designated service provider for the Apple industry and those who do not know how to use the gadget will be trained.
The issuing of ipads to the legislators will now save parliament from spending over 45million shillings in buying stationery.
The cost of the ipads has been estimated at 375,616 dollars (Shs937.5m)
