LAND LORD AND TENANT BILL
State Minister Hon. Chris Baryomunsi has said the bill will scrap all loopholes landlords have been using to expolit tenants. Minister Baryomunsi however assured legislators that the bill is meant for the good of both landlords and tenants. He said that the bill was not biased against any parties as it was presented to and passed by the Cabinet, which he said is also comprised of many landlords.
“The law seeks to accommodate both interests of tenants and landlords, I am not under intimidation by landlords,” said Baryomunsi.
He also said that the proposed law will solve the problem of owners of business premises in Kampala collectively agreeing to charge rent in dollars against interests of tenants.
