UGANDA, Kampala | Real Muloodi News | The State House has stepped in to investigate the facts behind the acquisition of plots in the Buganda Kingdom, also known as the Kabaka’s land.
The land in question is in Buswa-Sissa, Wakiso District, and was leased to the Nabagereka Development Foundation, founded by Her Royal Highness Sylvia Nagginda, the Nnabagereka (Queen) of the Kingdom of Buganda.
The land initially had 15 known settlers, which Mengo recognises, but the number has risen to over 200, all of whom are requesting compensation.
The 200-plus residents who claim to have purchased plots on the Buganda Queens’s land are now living in fear of being evicted. The contested land consists of 25 acres allocated by the Kabaka of Buganda to the Nabagereka development foundation.
Speaking last week at Bulange after meeting with Col Edith Nakalema, the State House Anti-Corruption Unit director, Nabagereka, says that conflict has hampered her ability to place developments on the land, and she is appealing to residents to accept development in their area.
She claims she requested the government’s intervention because she does not want anybody expelled forcibly.
Following the intervention of the state House anti corruption unit, all residents occupying the land were asked to accept to be surveyed on Monday 17th January 2022, before any decision can be made.
The Buganda Kingdom Attorney General, Christopher Bwanika, guarantees the land’s tenants that they will not be evicted. He pushed them to engage in discourse and discover ways to cohabit on the land to benefit themselves and the Kingdom.
The Nabagereka of Buganda urged Buswa village Siisa sub-county inhabitants in Wakiso District to accept progress that will benefit them, their families, and the country.
According to Ministry of Lands assessments, the Nabagereka foundation property is 25.10 acres. According to the ministry’s Senior Surveyor, Mr Chris Tembo, the next stage is to map the bibanja and determine where all tenants are assigned.
