The Kampala Capital City Traders Association (KACITA) has asked Parliament not to impose time limit within which alcohol is sold in bars in Uganda, saying such a move infringes on leisure time for Ugandans.

“We need to understand that we have different behavioral changes and there are factors why they do happen. It is actually uncalled for. I don’t know whether the pushers of this bill have in mind that we have workers who have leave days, I don’t know whether they understand that people have their leisure time and so when you say before 5Pm and you haven’t put into consideration the clients that are contributing to this sector, I think it is wrong, said Abel Mwesigwa, Chief Executive KACITA.

KACITA also wondered how the provision banning sell of alcohol in public service vehicles will be enforced, questioning if Police Officers will now be required to accompany all taxis and buses. “Are we going to have enforcement officers in every taxi to check whether someone is drunk or if they are selling? Absolutely we can’t. it isn’t practical,” said Mwesigwa.

Section 14(1) of the Alcoholic Drinks Control Bill 2023 stipulates that a licensee shall not sell an alcoholic drink or native liquor before 17:00 hours and after 22:00 hours on working days and 12:00 hours and after 00:00 hours on public holidays and weekends

Internal Affairs Otafiire Minister summoned over Grabbing Luzira Prison Land


Speaker of parliament Rt. Hon. Anita Among has asked the prime minister Robinah Nabbanja to summon Kahinda Otafiire, Minister of Internal Affairs to come to Parliament and clarify on the reported relocation of Luzira Prison.

This happened after some Members of Parliament raised concern over integrity of this process, citing Otafire’s implication in several land grabbing scandals in Uganda.

Last week, a letter from a group of investors hit the waves of social media that was addressed to the minister of internal affairs requesting to relocate Luzila prison to another place.

The investors revealed that the place where Luzira prison is sitting is good for a hotel business that could yield more revenue for development.

“The issue of official Secrecy applies but if it is true, because I can’t take this as a true statement, we will ask the Minister to come and give an explanation to this. But giving an instruction that the prison should be shifted has no problem, but what has a problem is the process. Is the right process going to be followed is the issue. “Among said

Kasambya County member of parliament Mbwa Tekamewa revealed to parliament that Minister Kahinda Otafiire is known for land grabbing which forced the speaker to stop him discussing members who are not present.

“The justification that I am bringing is that Minister who is inviting people for a consultative meeting is well known to be a land grabber in this country.” Mbwa Tekamwa said.
