Jinja District council has elected a new district land board
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.
