Jinja District Gets New Land Board Chairperson

David Musenze’s name was proposed by the district executive committee led by vice-chairperson, Florence Asio.
Jinja District council has elected a new district land board chairperson. 

David Musenze’s name was proposed by the district executive committee led by vice-chairperson, Florence Asio. 

Asio said that Musenze is one of the senior serving members at the board who can protect the interests of the public.

“As executive, we resolved to choose Musenze because of his resilience in serving the public interest even at this time when most people think that, only the rich can access titles,” she says. 

Musenze vowed to ensure that residents can access land titles with ease.

“The public has known us for corruption tendencies but, my tenure will foster access to land titles for all irrespective of their denominations in society,” he says. 

The office fell vacant after the then chairperson Innocent Ndiko, resigned her position citing forgeries orchestrated by some members at the board whom she accused of allegedly forging her signature and issuing out a freehold title on the five-hectare piece of land along Kyabazinga way in Jinja municipality. 

Ndiko was summoned by the Catherine Bamugemereire led commission where she denied allegations of initiating fraudulent land transactions and resolved to resign from the board as a way of clearing her public image. 

Musenze also faulted land grabbers of conniving with the political leadership and a section of members at the board to forge land titles which has destroyed the land board’s public trust.
