Although Uganda Railways was meant to get 69.5 billion shillings for the 57 acres of land, 10 years later the Privatisation Unit has not yet succeeded to get this money which the owner -URC- desperately needs.
Sarah Nambasa the URC corporation Secretary was tasked to explain how the 57 acres of land was given to 10 investors including Janet Kobusingye the owner of Mestil Hotel, Charles Kimera, Islamic University, House of Dawda, CTM Uganda Limited, Access Uganda Limited and Yas Company.
The property contained on Plot 71 Nkrumah Road was leased in 2010 by then Kampala City Council to Securex Amenities (U) Limited whose directors were listed as Businessman Ephraim Ntaganda, Bob Kanaabi and Innocent Mutajabura for five years. The temporarily leased property then somehow became freehold ownership
In the recent past, the Ministry of Lands indicated that the Uganda Land Commission requires an annual allocation of 170 billion Shillings for ten years or a one-off 1.7 trillion Shillings to compensate over 6,000 claimants.
Uganda Land Commission manages 11,087.748 square miles of public land. This land includes land that houses all public schools, health centres, swamps, national parks, game reserves Prison, military and police barracks, airfields among others.
Muganga, the Proprietor of Kenlloyd Logistics Uganda Limited is reported to have obtained the lease over the land in total contravention of statutory laws. Muganga is a son in law to Foreign Affairs Minister Sam Kutesa.
