Kampala City business mogul Hamis Kiggundu, popularly known as Ham, has waived off the rent arrears for July for all tenants in all his arcades/malls in the city as they return to work after the ease of lockdown.
Mr Kiggundu said the tenants had not been working during the Covid-19 lockdown period and therefore should be given a fresh start to allow business continuity.
“We welcome you back from the lockdown, Management has taken a decision to waive off your RENT ARREARS for the month of July since the entire country was under lockdown,” reads part of a notice.
The notice added that tenants are required to pay for the month of August not later than 5th.
“However, you are equally required to fully observe SOPs as provided by the government to encounter the spread of Covid-19,” he said.
