Published

on

Top senior lands Registrar in the Ministry of lands Housing and Urban Development, Louella Ataro and businessman Hajji Haruna Ssemakula were again cited in another fat land grabbing scandal in Kayunga District.

It should be remembered that recently, Jude Clement Kidega , an assistant commissioner in the works ministry testified before the commission of inquiry into land matters that he was assisted by Ataro to purchase  part of Ssayi Central Forest reserve in Mukono and he even got a land title after paying Ataro Shs10m. 

By that time, Ataro was a senior land registrar in Mukono District and other districts like Buikwe and Kayunga before being transferred to Mbale District where she is. She has been recently also implicated in giving away government land including wetlands, forestry reserve and road reserve.  She denied all the allegations put against her. Suprisingly, on Friday, Ataro appeared before the same probe to answer queries on how she allowed the surveying and titling of Bajjo, Wamala and Kiula forest reserves. 

Commission’s Assistant lead counsel Andrew Odit revealed that Ataro used her office as the land title registrar and allowed private individuals to get land titles in the forestry reserve. 

“Madam Ataro, between 2013 -16 when you were the land title registrar Mukono District, you allowed the surveying, mapping and titling of three forest reserves in Kayunga district. The forest reserves are now being encroached on by private people carrying out cattle keeping. They are even waving land titles given to them by you,” Odit reveaed.

Ataro, who was accompanied by his lawyer Richard Balungi denied all the allegations put against her, she said that she looked into all the records of land transaction in Kayunga and never got any evidence that he gave titles to anyone on of three forest reserves in Kayunga district.

However,  she asked the commission chair justice Catherine Bamugemereire to give her time to go back and do more verification of the documents the commission is probing.  She also testified that while verifying the record on the land she allowed to be titled, sent to her by the commission investigators, Kyagwe block 100 plot 171 was not indicated. She only learnt of those land particulars  when she was being interviewed by the commission investigators.

She told the commission that she must be allowed to go back and look for the record on the concerned Kyagwe block 100 plot 171. Earlier, city businessman Haruna Ssemakula also asked the commission to give him more time to verify the documents asked by the commission investigators. Odit revealed that Ssemakula is among the beneficiaries of the three forest reserves after conniving with Ataro. Odit said that Ssemakula was given a land title and sold off the land to different government officials including those working in State House. Ssemakula was also grilled by the commission for grabbing Nonve forest reserve and giving part of the grabbed land to his relative Ian Kyeyune the former Wakiso District chairperson and Wakiso District RDC.  Ssemakula was also allowed to go back with fresh summons and told to verify the documents he used to obtain the controversial land. National Forest Authority complained to the commission over the frequent grabbing of forestry reserve. The commission is still investigating the matter.

Ugandans Should Start Telling More Lies: Nambooze Attacks Museveni For Calling Buganda Katikkiro Mayiga A Liar

Published

on

Mukono Municipality legislator Betty Nambooze has rallied Ugandans to start telling more lies because the word has changed meaning and government officials are calling the truth lies and lies truth.

During his address to the nation yesterday evening at State House Nakasero, a furious Museveni warned Buganda Kingdom Prime Minister (Katikkiro) Charles Peter Mayiga to stop uttering nonsense concerning the registration of coffee growers.

“About the licensing of coffee, there is no license, this Katikkiro was telling lies. I sent a message to someone that this Katikkiro should stop this nonsense. He was lying, and he should stop. There is no licensing, what is happening is registering and the reason for registering is exporting,” Museveni said.

The president said that he was the one who ordered his cabinet minister of agriculture Vincent Sempijja to go and explain the Katikkiro what the government wants to achieve by registering Coffee farmers.

The president said as a cattle keeper from Ankole, he has been registered and they have their chairman.

It should be remembered that the Katikkiro, during the Buganda budget reading on Monday cautioned government the new laws which the government plans to slap on coffee growers in the country are in bad faith. It should be noted that coffee is one of the popular cash crops grown in Buganda region.  

In the same address, the president told security organs to stop arresting people for annoying him.

“I don’t mind being annoyed. I have no problem with being annoyed. That was a colonial law that I used to hear about. The bigger issue is telling lies, inciting and sedition. Those are the areas of substance that police should concentrate on,” Museveni said.

WHY ARE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS CALLING TRUTH LIES?

Mukono municipality legislator betty Nambooze Bakireke has attacked the president for calling Buganda Premier Chales Peter Mayiga a liar.

Through his Facebok page, Nambooze said, “At State House last evening Mr.Museveni called the Buganda Katikiro a lier and a perdon who speaks rubbish…. His I mention was to belittle the Katikiro for he Insisted that his interpreter Rose Namayanja gives his word their true meaning in Luganda. Mr.Museveni said that farmers are to be registered because foreign buyers if coffee want to trace the coffee bean right from the farmer…so because of this what the Katikiro is saying are lies and Nonsense!”

She adds, “In Parliament, State Minister Mutuuzo on the floor of Parliament said the same things about me… she said that I am a liar when I say that Ugandan girls in the Middle East are being enslaved. She justified her submission with telling Parliament that these girls bring in 600 million dollars in the economy annually…so because of this, I who was talking about their plight was a liar and speaking Nonsense.

I therefore wish to inform Ugandans who care for our country to start telling the lies and nonsense like the Katikiro….. The two words changed meaning, they mean to oppose policies, actions and laws that disfavor Ugandans by exchanging their rights with foreign interests.”

Don’t Be Stupid, You Are Fools To Think That Bujjingo’s Followers Will Run To Your Churches – Mirundi Blasts Pastors Kiganda And Bugembe, Reveals Shocking Information About Teddy

Published

on

Self-claimed media consultant Joseph Tamale Mirundi has blasted and warned pastors under the National Fellowship of Born-Again Pentecostal churches to stop celebrating house of prayers ministry international senior pastor Aloysius Bujjingo’s woes.

Mirundi said that born again pastors must learn that the reason why people are still at Bujjingo’s church is because of the miracles Bujjingo performs and his preaching and the day they discover that he no longer performs to their expectations, they will leave on their own.

“I was suprised to see the likes of pastor Bugembe, David Kiganda cerebrating the troubles of their fellow pastor Bujjingo stupidly, thinking that they will get his followers.  They don’t know the reasons behind Bujjingo’s problems, it’s a big scheme that can only be understood by us who eat enough food,” the celebrated political analysts stated. 

He wondered why Bishop David Kiganda sided with the mafias who want to put Bujjingo down yet he also once tested the bitterness of these mafias when he was embarrassed in public that his wife was snatched by a chapatti maker which was not true.

He insisted that the scheme to put Bugingo down was planned by mafias because of his steady progress spiritually and economically which made him a political threat to those who are fighting to succeed President Museveni.  A bitter Mirundi blasted the women who participated in the demonstration against Bujjingo saying that they were just hired as machineries to humiliate the man of God. 

He boasted that through his Mirundi Internal Security Organization (MISO), he has collected enough evidence pinning Naluswa that she was cursed by her father after conspiring with her mother to harass the old professor until he died.

The former press secretary to the president further blasted journalists who were beaten at Salt Media based home at Lugujja in Lubaga division, he branded them as machineries hired to tarnish Bujjingo’s name like they did to him during his tenure as the President’s press Secretary.

“I was accused and called all sorts of names, that man Kulubya of Bukedde even called me a mad,” a bitter Mirundi said.  The cerebrated journalist warned that if journalists don’t stop being used, the public will continue beating them up.  However, Mirundi blamed Bujjingo for miscalculating and always responding to his enemies.  He predicted that Bujjingo will not lose the battle though he must be prepared for the war if he is to decisively defeat his enemies.
