The Uganda hire purchase act 2009 vis-à- vis the Kenyan hire purchase act
MetadataShow full item record
The Hire Purchase Act of Uganda, 2009 is a commendable effort from the Ugandan law makers which seeks on one hand to respond to the commercial needs of the people by providing a legal framework aimed at creating a regulatory guideline for the concerned parties in a hire purchase transaction and at the same time, cater for the rights, duties and most importantly, the procedure for enforcing such rights or duties when the need arise. The hub of this paper is to examine few clauses in the Ugandan Hire Purchase Act with a view of ascertaining whether those clauses are in tune with the generally acceptable way of legislative drafting while at the same time engage in a comparative analysis between the Ugandan and Kenyan Hire Purchase Act. The essence of this comparison is to bring out few provisions in the Kenyan Act which this researcher considers germane but perhaps via legislative omission; (those provisions) are not included in the Ugandan Act.
