A property broker in Wakiso District has been remanded to Prison on accusations of malicious damage in regard to destroying a house a house on a disputed kibanja near Entebbe.   

The Magistrates Court at Entebbe remanded Charles Kyagaba until September 19 this year as investigations continue.   The Court before Grade One Magistrate Stella Okwong issued criminal summons against 3 men who are jointly accused with Kyagaba on a case of alleged malicious damage to property.  

The 3 suspects are Benon Kabuusu, Robert Komakech and a one Waiswa, all self-employed residents of Ziru Village in Wakiso District.   Prosecution alleges that on April 23rd this year at Ziru village, the 4 men willfully and unlawfully destroyed a house structure belonging to Margaret Kyomuhangi. 

  

Kyagaba was arrested on Monday by the State House Anticorruption and the Police following a complaint by Kyomuhangi against the failure of the authorities to handle her case.   Detectives from the State House Unit who declined to be named, revealed that Kyomuhangi had complained to Entebbe police station where she was not assisted but she later reported the matter to the unit which took over the inquiries and the case files leading to arrest of Kyagaba.   

It is alleged that the suspects demolished Kyomuhangi’s house in an attempt to evict her from a disputed kibanja where she had a dispute with Kyagaba.   According to court documents, the land at Ziru belongs to the Catholic Church but it is occupied by bibanja owners including Margret Kyomuhangi who acquired her kibanja from Nayiga Queen Mary.   

However, Kyagaba allegedly claimed the same Kibanja that Naiyiga sold to Kyomuhangi saying it was his reward for having assisted her to evict illegal occupants from her land.   According to the investigators, Kyagaba is involved in several fraudulent land transactions where he claims kibanja interest on people's land using fraudulently obtained courts documents to give various orders a basis for  his claims of ownership.
