The Zubair Family, a film and drama group company in Kampala, were told to leave their premises at Muganzi Lwazza Building yesterday and they were given a grace period of 7 days.
The lawyer to the caretakers of the building told the media yesterday that the group had defaulted rent for several months and it was time for them to leave. He added that instead of seeking forgiveness, they ran to the police, which could not help them.
“They claim we refused to accept them to hold their show at the building but they had not paid for their rent for some months. We gave them extensions and grace periods to pay the money, starting from January, but till now, they have not yet cleared. We, therefore, decided to use the law to evict them,” he said.
Moses Bbosa Sserunkuma, the boss of the group, told the media that he is not ready to move out of the place because his gadgets worth 100M were stolen while the landlord held his things in the room.
“We are not going to accept to leave the place because we also demand them our money. Our things were stolen and we are demanding 100M. The issue was about their decision to cancel Evelyn Lagu’s show. When we took them to the police, they panicked,” he added.
The group has recently faced challenges with rent following the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. They are known for their series such as “Namujinga”, “ekiraamo”, “kiguli ne doctor” and several more.
