Kampala: Two suspects who were involved in the transfer of five land titles on the land already registered in the names of Yoweri Kaguta Museveni were yesterday arraigned before the Chief Magistrate’s Court in Mpigi hearing.
According to head of State House Ant-corruption Unit, Lt Col Edith Nakalema, the suspects including Segane Peter, Suuna Jimmy and the Cartographer Ministry of lands Avola Kennedy were remanded to Sentema government prisons till 28/07/2020 as investigations into the matter continue.
The suspects allegedly grabbed the land located at Katwekambwa in Kabulasoke Sub County, Gomba District and forged five land titles out of it.
In 2018, the Commission of inquiry into land matters established that President Museveni’s land at Kisozi Ranch in Maddu Sub-county, Ggomba District was grabbed. The Kisozi ranch manager Florence Kamatenesi said the land grabbers got a title deed for 300 acres in 2016 on the land at Katwe Kambwa hill in Ggomba district.
Cases of land grabbing and conflicts have of late been on the rise in several parts of the country but these are mostly blamed on district land boards and the Ministry of Lands officials.
These are in most cases involved in creating secondary titles on the land belonging to other people and this has created a lot of confusion and conflicts.
