In her remarks, Kagina also quoted the constitution of Uganda that guides that land in swamps or wetlands cannot be titled nor sold/owned. In fact, Kagina requested Nakalema to investigate how agencies in Government-issued titles in a swamp.

”Until the request for State House Anti Corruption Unit -led investigations are concluded, there won’t be any compensation claims honoured nor paid specifically to the Kasaawe land in Mutungo/Butabika,” said Kagina.
