Opposition MP Alex Onzima has contradicted his party and expressed support for the Land Amendment Bill 2007.
Onzima who belongs to the Forum for Democratic Change says that he will not sit on the fence yet the bill seeks to address land problems facing his constituents and Ugandans in other areas.

FDC president Kiiza Besigye on Monday asked government to withdraw the land amendments bill saying the existing laws were sufficient.
Opposition MPs belonging to the DP, UPC, CP and FDC are vehemently opposed to the bill.
However Onzima says accuses many Mps who are opposing the bill of dishonesty.
He says it is the responsibility of MPs to improve on the Bill if it has weaknesses instead of rejecting it all together.
Opposition MPs Sebuliba Mutumba of Kwempe South, Betty Anywar of Kitgum district, and Betty Among in of Apac district say there is no need to create another law on land because several laws exists.
The MPs argues that the existing laws should be implemented instead of bringing in another law.
However NRM MPs Theodore Ssekikuubo of Lwemiyaga, Charles Ngabirano of Rwampara says the Bill is necessary because of the rampant land evictions to protect Ugandans.
