Two suspected land fraudsters in Entebbe have been remanded to Kigo Prison.

John Muzungu and Joseph Walusimbi were arrested on Friday and charged with criminal trespass. The two have on several occasions been accused of illegal land transactions and impersonating as soldiers attached to the Special Forces Command. 

On Friday Walusimbi and Muzungu were arraigned before Entebbe Grade One Chief Magistrate Mary Babirye.

Prosecution alleges that Muzungu and Walusimbi trespassed on a seven-acre piece of land owned by Moses Ndege Bbosa in Bulega Village, Katabi town council.

The land has since 2003 been owned by Bbosa who bought it from Walusimbi, a kibanja holder at 2 million shillings. 

However, in 2016, Walusimbi allegedly connived with police officers and the then LC1 chairperson for Bulega Hussein Kirumira and sold the same piece of land to Kandiho Geogous, John Muzungu, Dan Abaine, Noel Mwesige, and Albert Wabululu. 

In December,  Bbosa through his lawyers warned Muzungu and Walusimbi to stop trespassing on his land. 

However, Both Muzungu and Walusimbi refused and claimed they had entered a 400 million shillings transaction on the same piece of land and that Bbosa had no ownership over it.

Babirye remanded the two suspects to Kigo Prison until January 21st.
