Last week Hon. Zitto Z. Kabwe attended four meetings in Kigoma in my capacity (and as part of his job) as MP of Kigoma Kaskazini, at the Constituency Development Fund Committee, District Council, Road Board and Regional Consultative (RCC).
In all of these meetings participants are entitled to receive posho (sitting allowance).
On his blog, Zitto says,
This is how to say NO to posho and stand by it:
In keeping with my stand I said NO to the posho. However, I signed for it and took it - in order then to go round the technicality of returning back the posho to the Government to show that my statement is not just rhetoric but action.
Above photo illustrates the receipt showing the payment I made back to the Government for the Road Board meeting. Lets cut down on unnecessary expenditure and direct this money to our development budget to spur development and growth.
