The two government junior ministers Persis Namuganza  (lands state minister) and Benna Namugwanya Bugembe (state minister for Kampala), who were pinned for trying to con president Museveni are destined to face the land probe tomorrow.

Last week, minister Namuganza was very bitter with the land probe chairperson justice Catherine Bamugemereire after warning her that her commission has been infiltrated by mafias. Namuganza noted that some commissioners on the land probe are land grabbers, she gave an example of George Bagonza Tikamanyire whom she pinned of grabbing land in Bunyoro region.

Namuganza told journalist at her offices that Ugandans especially in government are tired of the land probe. He accused Bamugemereire and her team of thinking that they have extreme powers greater than those of the cabinet ministers. She warned that she was going to talk to other cabinet ministers so that they can put some regulations to reduce the commission’s powers.

Namuganza told journalists that government has been wasting a lot of money on the commission with the commissioners getting over sh54m a month yet they are not resolving any land disputes.  She gave an example of the Mubende land dispute where people are still evicted from their land yet the commission promised to resolve the matter.

Namuganza denied all the allegation put against her by a one Herman Byakatonda who testified that Namuganza connived with Namugwanya, UPDF major Eric Kigamboha, Milly Naava Namutebi the former head teacher of Nakasero primary school to con sh4bn from president Yoweri Museveni.

Byakatonda told the commission that Namuganza took them to the president after promising them that the president was going to buy for them the land where there are evicted from.   However, Byakatonda said that when they reached at state house Entebbe, Namuganza told them not to say anything before the president if they want him to buy for them land.

Byakatonda protested Namuganza’s orders and told the president that the people Namuganza took to him are fraudsters who never own any land in Mubende. The President according to Byakatonda was very furious and set up a probe in state house to investigate both ministers.

According to Mr. Douglas Singiza, Namuganza will be the first to face the commissioner and she will be followed by Namugwanya.
