Published

on

Badru Bwanika, a city businessman has been grilled by the Commission of inquiry into land matters over assisting Gladys Mukula, a wife to former health Minister Mike Mukula in grabbed land belonging to an old Woman in Makerere.

Justice Catherine Bamugemereire, the chairperson of the Commission told Bwanika that acting in his capacity as Mukula’s henchman, he tormented 76-year-old Rosemary Nabukenya and forced her to vacate her land. Bamugemereire said that Bwanika used his position as Local Council 1 chairperson Makerere Kivulu to intimidate Nabukenya, “Mr. Bwanika, you are good at siding with people who have money. We have evidence that you moved with Miss Mukula because she has money and you intimidated that old woman Nabukenya, why are you harassing poor people?”

Bwanika denied moving with Mukula and said that he only met her when she came to his office with documents that he bought the land where Nabukenya’s old house sits. He said that he advised Mukula to sit down with Nabukenya and see how much money she can compensate her so that she can leave the land which is located on Kyadondo Block 9 plot 360.

Bamugemereire was not convinced with Bwanika’s testimony, she said that Bwanika even went to Court and testified against Nabukenya that she is not the owner of the land without giving her an opportunity for fair hearing has a leader. She pinned him for being a greedy person who is even under investigation by the Commission for uttering forged documents and witnessing of double land transactions in Kivulu village.

Bwanika insisted that the disputed land on Kyadondo Block 9 plot 351-360 doesn’t belong to Nabukenya but she is just a tenant.

He said that he went to Court and testified against Nabukenya in the case where she was battling with a one Bwogi. He told the Commission that he was summoned by the Court because he was the chairperson who signed on an agreement when he was purchasing the piece of land from Kesige.

Bamugemereire tasked Bwanika to prove to the Commission why he is insisting that the disputed land doesn’t belong to Nabukenya. Bwanika state that when Bwogi bought the land, she took her complaints to the area leadership that the land belonged to her. He said that Bwogi presented to him his land title and Nabukenya didn’t have any which proved to him that she was not the owner of the land.

Justice Bamugemereire presented to him all the documents showing that Nabukenya was the bonfide owner of the land. She gave him the micro films from Entebbe survey and mapping department, a document from the registration of land titles showing that in 2011 Mukula’s land title was cancelled and registered in Nabukenya’s names.

Bamugemereire also showed Bwanika documents showing that in 2016, Nabukenya’s land title was fraudulently cancelled and reinstated in Mukula’s names.  Bamugemereire wondered where a leader like Bwanika got the guts to even go to Court and testify over a matter whose history he did not understand.

She blasted him for giving wrong information to Court when he testified against Nabukenya.

Earlier, Bwanika showed the Commission plots which were allegedly grabbed by top city businessmen and powerful government officials from Nabukenya. These include Uganda Insurance Regulatory Authority Boss Kadunabi Lubega, imprisoned city businessman Kato Kajubi, John Katuramu the former Tooro Kingdom Prime Minister, Global Consultants and others.  Justice  Bamugemereire said that the Commission is going to summon all the named persons in this fraudulent land grabbing scheme. She said that the Commission has evidence that in 1970’s, a group of people lead by Dr Emmanuel Lumu the former Health Minister forcefully stole documents concerning this land from Eliyab Nsubuga and evicted him from the land.

Nabukenya testified that her mother Nalongo Nanyonga bought the land from Nsubuga but her documents were stolen by Lumu and other people when she grew old. The Commission is still investigating the matter.

NRM Is Like A Son To Mbabazi, You Cannot Separate Them, I Laughed When I Saw Opposition Jump Onto His Bandwagon – Minister Kiwanda…

Published

on

State minister for tourism Godfrey Kiwanda Suubi has revealed that former Prime Minister John Patrick Amama Mbabazi has NRM blood flowing in his veins, hence he can never abandon the party.

While appearing on Buganda owned BBS TV’s Amaaso ku gwanga talk show, Kiwanda laughed at the opposition characters who jubilated and boasted that they had fished a whale from the NRM in Amama Mbabazi.

Kiwanda said that the Mbabazi he knows cannot just slaughter his son the NRM for street people like Mpuuga and Ssegona because he has invested a lot in it.

“I looked at my good friends Medard Ssegona and Mathias Mpuuga jumping on Mbabazi’s bandwagon, I wondered how they calculated their political cards. Let me tell you, Museveni can leave NRM but Mbabazi cannot,” Kiwanda revealed.

Kiwanda boosted that like Mbabazi, he was also among the 179 promoters of the NRM party who signed on the party’s constitution. He explained that Museveni was not among the people who signed on the party constitution because he was still a serving military officer and the law did not allow him to participate in the partisan politics.

Kiwanda assured Ugandans that more NRM historicals like Mzee Jaberi Bidandi Ssali and Charles Rwomushana  will soon follow Mbabazi back to NRM. The shadow minister for lands who also doubles as Nakaseke South legislator Paul Lutamaguzi supported Kiwanda saying that you cannot separate Mbabazi from NRM because he is among the people in the yellow bus who accumulated a lot of wealth.

He said that he tried to warn to his bosses in the Democratic Party to thoroughly investigate Mbabazi’s defection to the opposition before jumping on him as their presidential candidate in 2016 general elections but they never listened to him.

Justice Sekaana and Lawyer Male Mabirizi

The newly appointed principle judge Dr Flavian Zeija has reversed his former boss Yolokam Bamwine’s decision to transfer High Court judges.

In the new circular No.01\2020 copied to the Chief Justice, Deputy Chief Justice, Chief Registrar and all High Court judges, Zeija noted that he decided to reverse the transfer made by Bamwine before retiring from his office because of the petitions he has been receiving from different individuals. Some of the judges had not yet reported to their new working places.

Among the beneficiaries of the reversed transfers was the controversial High Court civil Division judge Musa Sekaana. In the previous transfers, he had been transferred to Mbarara high court, the new transfers bring him back to Kampala High Court Civil Division. On Tuesday, Sekaana refused to excuse himself from the controversial case where people’s government through their lawyer Erias Lukwago and city lawyer Male Mabirizi wanted him to recuse himself from their case because he was a lawyer representing the Electoral Commission (EC).

Both applicants are claiming that both justice Simon Byabakama, the EC chairperson and EC Secretary General are occupying the offices illegally.
