EYEVFRICA TV: Kampala, Uganda: A section of members of parliament from Kampala central business district are concerned over the recently issued guidelines on combating covid-19.
Kampala Central Division Legislator Muhammad Nsereko wants commercial Banks to reschedule loans to allow debtors time to repay.
Nsereko who was in company of Makindye Legislator Allan Sewanyana also wants utility service providers to adjust charging time to the next 90 to 120 days.
Stay home is one of the latest directives issued by government to counter the spread of corona virus.
Also known as covid-19, the virus has put the world and Uganda on tension prompting interventions and guidelines by the President.
Such guidelines have attracted attention of a section of members of parliament from Kampala Central business district. They want adjustment in some services rendered to the public to avoid a possibility of double tragedy.
Kampala Central Legislator, Muhammad Nsereko wants the president to sign the recently passed Landlord and Tenant Bill. He says this will cater for interests of both parties during the covid-19 response period. But to what extent do other members of parliament share this point of view?
These arguments come at a time Uganda has only one confirmed case of the Covid-19 that was reported two days ago. Other countries have recorded tens, hundreds and thousands with Italy reporting the highest number of deaths.
