Kampala: Secretary Lira District Land Board Pastor Francis Okello Olwa has been arraigned before the KCCA Magistrates Court and charged with Conspiracy to defeat justice contrary to section 103(c) of the penal code Act Cap 120.

This has been revealed by the State House Anti Corruption Unit in a tweet noting that between the month of April & May 2022, Mr. Okello knowingly prevented the execution of a legal process by hiding a land registration file for land subject to an investigation.

The above dirty games among others triggered Lands Minister Judith Nabakooba to order for the immediate suspension of all activities relating to the Lira District Land Board.

Nabakooba in a letter dated February 4, 2022, addressed to the Lira Chief Administrative Officer and LCV Chairman, states that she received a complaint of misconduct involving corruption, and influence peddling against the members of the Lira District Land board.

“I have asked the Minister of State for lands to guide the district and the city on the effective process of nominating new members on the District Land Board within a month,” she said.
