//Cue in: "Well that is….
Cue out...right now"//
The Commission is probing a dispute pitying Ngambwa,
several Bibanja holders and the family of Gertrude
Ngambwa is accused of taking over 235 acres of land and 3 Square
Miles of Land in Buwagga and Buso Villages in Busukuma Sub County in Wakiso
Nakimbugwe's family owned the 235 acres of land. The family
claims to have sold 30 acres of land to Ngambwa but he ended up taking the
entire 235 acres.
Ngambwa claims that he acquired more
than 30 acres as payment for surveying the entire land. He is however, not
clear on how he ended up with the entire 235 acres.
He accused of taking over more than
3 square miles of land in Buso belonging to the estate of the late Ernesto
Ngambwa has since sold off the land.
On February 13th, 2019, the Commission visited the contested land on
a fact finding mission.
During the visit, the commission
Chairperson directed Ngambwa to provide, mother titles to the land in Buwagga
and Buso Villages, proof of ownership, a list of all his clients and details of
the land transactions.
Ngambwa didn’t provide the required documents prompting the
Commission to summon him in vain.
As a result, the Commission issued a
warrant for his arrest on March 07, 2019.
He was picked up on Friday last week
on his way to attend court in Kayunga district over land matters.
He was detained at Wandegeya Police
Station from where he was produced before the Commission.
He only provided the names of 559 people he sold land to and processed titles for.
