    If M7 Wants To Give Land To People Of Busukuma, Let Him Take Them To Kisozi Or Rwakitura – City Tycoon Kalungi Bill Gates Tells Off Minister Mayanja In Land Fight With Locals…

    Nonsense State Minister for lands Dr. Sam Mayanja has vowed to put controversial city tycoon Moses Kalungi alias Bill Gates in his right place.

    The seasoned lawyer and the proprietor of the famous Kampala Associated Advocates (KAA) lost his temper after Moses Jjemba, the deputy Resident District Commissioner (RDC) Wakiso district played for him an audio recording where he was telling Kalungi to attend the minister’s meeting at Busukuma division Wakiso district to resolve a land dispute he is involved in with the over 200 bibanja holders.

    “The RDC gave me recordings of Bill Gates calling President Museveni a fake president who can do nothing to him. Bill Gates said that if the President wants to give land to the people of Busukuma, let him take them to his Kisozi or Rwakitura land. He even boasted that he was the one who bought fuel for me and I had no powers to summon him.

    We are going to prove to that fake Bill Gates that he is nothing, I was there on orders of the president who he called fake,” Mayanja said.

    Mayanja explained that it all started when two boys from Busukuma stormed his office last week crying for help after Kalungi secured a Court Order to evict them from their land.

    He told them to prove that the land was theirs by providing documents concerning their bibanja and documents from local authorities backing up their ownership which they did the next day.

    He revealed that before going to Busukuma last Friday, he first talked to the RDC and asked him for security like he has always done before visiting any area where there are land wrangles.

    However, when he reached on the ground, there were no police officers. He had to depend on the SFC Commandos assigned to him for his personal security.

    “The RDC assured me that he talked to the OC Station Busukuma and he guaranteed that police will provide security but when the time reached, he refused to pick our calls. The area residents later told me that the entire security in the area is on Kalungi’s payroll that is why he thinks even the President cannot stop him from evicting poor bibanja owners in Busukuma,” Mayanja divulged.

    He added that Kalungi uses a lot of impunity in his bid to evict bibanja holders on the 50 acres in Busukuma.

    His impunitive acts include demolishing houses and property.

    The minister insisted that Kalungi compromised the judiciary and secured a Court Order which was given to him by the Henry Kaweesa Isabirye, the High Court land division Judge.

    During the meeting with Bibanja owners, Mayanja told them not to allow Kalungi to evict them because the Court Order he is using is premature given that he has not followed all the procedures put in place by president Museveni before executing any Court Orders.

    He explained to local people of Busukuma the procedures of executing a court Order.

    He told them that once court issues an order, it should first be checked by the district security committee, then forwarded to the Minister of Lands who studies court’s recommendations before approving the eviction.

    He assured them that Kalungi never followed this process.

    He assured them that their occupancy as bibanja owners is legal and the constitution recognizes them as it recognizes the landlords that is why they should fight for their constitutional rights.

    Mayanja promised the residents that he is going to make sure that he takes on Kalungi so that he stops his arrogance.

    He promised to write to President Museveni, Rtd. Maj. Gen. Kahinda Otafire, the Minister of Internal Affairs, IGP Martin Okoth Ochola to put in line their officers at Busukuma police station who have been compromised by Kalungi’s money.

    Residents told Mayanja that Village Local Chairpersons and the area police are now working as land brokers and many widows and orphans have lost their land.

    They accuse Kasambya Village chairperson, Senta Village chairperson and Busukuma village chairperson.

    This is not the first time that Minister Mayanja is facing off with city tycoons under their umbrella the Kwagalana club which he said is a group of land grabbers.

    Kalungi is a brother to Godfrey Kirumira another city tycoon.

    We tried to reach Bill Gates for a comment but his known phone numbers were off.

    “They further utilized various methods of secret communication to conceal their criminal activities. Several exhibits of motorcycles, mobile phones and documents were recovered,” Enanga said.
