A man businessman in Masaka has dragged the municipality to court for cancelling his building plan despite fulfilling all the necessary requirements. 

Darausi Wamala accuses Masaka municipality of blocking him from developing Plots 110 and 111 on Broadway road in Masaka town he acquired from Masaka District Land Board in July 2017.

After acquiring the said plots of land, the municipality approved Wamala’s building plans. However, Masaka municipality later cancelled Wamala’s building plan on grounds that he illegally acquired the land.

The council also later claimed that the structural plan of the area had changed. Now, Wamala has run to Masaka High Court to cancel the order by municipal authorities blocking him from developing the land.

 

Through his lawyer Chrysostom Katumba, Wamala told Justice Winfred Nabisinde on Wednesday that he has repeatedly tried to renew his building plan to allow him to commence construction works in vain.  

He also said the claims by the Municipal Planner, Martin Kigozi that the structural plan of the area has changed are not convincing to stop him from redeveloping the land. 

Katumba said the municipality should instead direct his client on the kind of building they want in the area instead of blocking him altogether.

Cue out:……they want to frustrate him,”   

Masaka Town Clerk, Paul Omok, says the land Wamala claims to own belongs to Masaka municipal council. He says the council can’t approve Wamala’s fresh building plan until the ownership is settled.

But Wamala insists that he is the rightful owner of the land, saying he even has a title.

Cue out:……akolerewo ebintu bye,”//  

Justice Winfred Nabisinde adjourned the matter to May 15th, 2019 when both parties are expected to make their last submissions before court can make its ruling.
