Parliament on Monday awarded over 1,000 legislators who served since independence until 9th Parliament to be decorated with the Golden Jubilee Medals.
The lavish Shs600m ceremony took place at the Kampala Serena Hotel this afternoon.
In a communication, the Clerk to Parliament asked former MPs to pick up their awards in person, and that persons picking up awards on behalf of awardees to have a letter of authorization.
A total of 1,102 legislators who served between independence and the 9th Parliament were all decorated.
However, some former legislators like Miria Matembe say the want a retirement package instead of medals.
