The move to rent more offices was disclosed by the Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga  while interfacing with MPs from Bugisu and Sebei areas at Hotel Africana in Kampala.

Currently, MPs  have offices on three buildings which include the main building of parliament, Development House and Queen chambers ,all them on parliament Avenue in Kampala.

Kadaga said that the construction of a new parliament chamber of parliament to accommodate almost 600 MPs has been delayed due to change in design.
