William Wopuwa, the Bubulo East county MP in Mbale district, says the commission has failed to ensure the safety of MP's at the rented Bauman house.
Wopuwa claims that some MPs have lost computers from offices and that he was personally knocked by motor cyclists while he was crossing from parliament to the rented offices.
Obongi MP, Fungaroo Kaps Hasasan said apart from facilitation, some MPS have been left out on the travels abroad where they would have benefitted in terms of study tours.
