supporting a team of fraudsters involved in selling land hosting traditional
parish courthouses (ekitawuluzi).

Kasanakamusisi village hosting Kasawo sub-county courthouse for Kasana parish.
The land was recently partitioned by grabbers for sale. Although Haji Sulaiman
Teefe has welcomed his appointment, Kawombe has expressed dissatisfaction with
the decision to replace him and saying he will not hand over the office.
April 18th, 2021 letter, Kawombe indicates that apart from hearing the
accusations levelled against him by Kyaggwe county headquarters, the minister
did not specify clear reasons behind his dismissal or give him a chance to
defend himself. “I am not

myself,” Kawombe writes in his letter.
However, the Kyaggwe county head insists that Kawombe should know that
working for the kingdom is an assignment from the King, prime minister or any
other designated kingdom minister who reserves the rights for dismissal.
