Parliament Set To Pay Huge Fees In Rent Arrears To Kampala Kingdom

The Parliament Commission is set to pay a huge sum of money in rent arrears to the Kampala Kingdom plaza. This follows a move to have their plenary sittings at the building located in the city center.

Parliament has been under construction for some time now and cannot accommodate all the MPs. They, therefore, decided to rent Kampala kingdom. The house will spend a whooping shs9.8 billion on rent arrears at the multi-purpose building.

Parliament’s director of communications and public affairs Chris Obore told the media that parliament was still resolving office issues.

“The Parliamentary Commission will pay Shs9.8 billion per year for 9,030 square meters within Kingdom Kampala. In addition to the office space, there will also be parking space for 300 vehicles. The contract will start on July 15 and run for a period of two years. This is, however, on a short term basis. The long term will be the completion of the new Parliament chambers, which will create more space for MPs.” Obore said.

Obore also addressed the concern of some MPs worrying about office space. He said that all MPs will get an office and no one will operate without an office.

“Parliament will easily be able to allocate space for the MPs once committees are in place. So, we are waiting for the constitution of the committees of the House and then the allocation of offices will start,” Obore added.

They gave committee chairpersons priority and allocated office space within parliamentary Chambers according to Obore. The responsibility then falls to the Sergeant-at-arms to rationalize the allocation of offices and committee rooms.

Parliament will continue renting office space at Victoria’s Chambers as has been the case besides Kampala Kingdom.
