The Landlord-Tenant Bill Not To Change Despite Grumbles, Minister Amongi Vows

As various people continue to grumble over the landlord-tenant bill, Betty Among the minister for lands, housing and development come out to clarify on this matter.

Many supposed that this law should be revised and amended however minster Amongi stated that this will not be possible because enough consultations were made before passing the bill.

The law forbids the landlords from charging tenants in dollars, the same law it is stated that a tenant has to be given at least 6 months notice before eviction, and the landlord can only increase the rent once a year and not exceeding 10%.

In the same way, Amongi refuted rumours that have been spreading that the landlord has to give a 6 months notice to the tenant without paying rent before eviction.

The president is yet to sign the bill in order to become complete law.
