I Will Never Come Back To Your Commission – Tycoon Kasasa Pens Bitter Letter To Bamugemereire Over Shs26bn Mutungo Hill Land

Dr. Muhammad Kasasa before the land probe

City Businessman Dr. Muhammad Kasasa through his lawyers of SK Kizza and Company Advocates has written a deadly letter to Justice Catherine Bamugemereire, the chairperson of the commission of inquiry into land matters assuring her that he is not going to come back to her commission as a witness.  Kasasa, who handed over the letter to the commission’s reception on Wednesday stated that the commission’s hearing of his case in which he is accused by the Buganda royal family of grabbing their family land, is jeopardizing his High Court case against Prince David Wasajja, the administrator of the Muteesa’s estate.

Kasasa stated that the information so far given to the commission is enough to pronounce itself on the matter. “Our client should thus be excused from further appearing before the commission of inquiry into land matters to avoid being caught up by the sub-judice rule since the land in question is already a subject of suit,” the letter reads in part.  He stated that the commission doesn’t have powers to determine the qualifications of ‘bibanja’ holders on his land because it’s only the court that can prove that.

He further noted that the commission was over stepping its mandate. Dr. Douglas Singiza confirmed receipt of the letter and noted that the commission will decide on what to do with Kasasa next week when he is suppossed to appear. Kasasa is accused of fraudulently acquiring over 640 acres of land on Mutungo land and selling it to the government of Uganda for security reasons. Government later established its External Security Organization Headquarters. Kasasa was paid shs2.4bn in 2009 as an agreeable price but is also being accused of conniving with mafias in government to be paid extra shs26bn which the commission is contesting.  Deputy Attorney General Mwesigwa Rukutana,  who made a legal opinion allowing the ministry of finance to pay Kasasa the shs26bn recently clashed with the commission’s chair justice Bamugemereire  when he appeared as a witness over the matter.  The commission is still investigating the Mutungo hill land scandal.

Museveni Commissions Wargame Centre At Kimaka…

Published

on

President Museveni has commissioned a wargame centre at the Uganda Senior Command and Staff College in Kimaka, Jinja District.
Speaking at the occasion, the President thanked the army, the training teams and the Indian Association of Uganda who mobilised to build the center, saying it will definitely contribute to the quality of training.
‘This centre is also a great gesture of the wider cooperation and support we enjoy with the government and the people of India’’
The President hailed the relationship between the UPDF and the Indian army which he said has a lot of knowledge, experience and heroism.
“Our relationship with India has existed for centuries. We were colonised together by a small group of people who came from Europe, but when we all woke up, and the small groups ran away.
During that time, we fought together first against the Japanese in Burma. The heroic Indians are the ones who stopped the westward expansion of Japan at the famous battle of Kohima.


Mahatma Ghandi struggled with our elders against colonialism, Jawaharlal Nehru too struggled with our elders against colonialism and now we are working with Prime Minister Narendera Modi. I salute the Indian political class for choosing to always work with us.
The epitome of India’s importance to Uganda is engraved in the fact that Mahatma Ghandi’s ashes were immersed in Jinja.
President Museveni commended the the Indian Community in Uganda, for its contribution to building Uganda through business and investment.
The Uganda Senior Command and staff college is a training facility for senior commanders in the Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF), including the army, air force and Special Forces

WHAT ARE WAR GAMES?
War games also known as military simulations are simulations in which theories of warfare can be tested and refined without the need for actual hostilities. Military simulations are seen as a useful way to develop tactical, strategical and doctrinal solutions.
Simulations exist in many different forms, with varying degrees of realism. In recent times, the scope of simulations has widened to include not only military but also political and social factors, which are seen as inextricably entwined in a realistic warfare model.

“On Monday 18th May, when the President made his speech on easing the lockdown, I felt that many issues were not addressed well. I have picked only three – Schools, Public transport and small businesses – for today, to respond. I have made mention of their status and presented a number of Proposals for us and the state to consider,” he said.
