It is alleged that Mutabaazi confronted Kasozi while at Butoloogo police post where he had gone to record a statement regarding the land dispute. The two have been embroiled in a dispute over an eight-acre piece of land belonging to two orphans who are relatives to Maj. Kakooza.

According to Kakooza, for more than four years, Mutabaazi has been making attempts to grab the land from the two daughters of his late uncle John Kakooza at Kisambula Kanyogoga in Butoloogo sub-county without success.

Kakooza is demanding that Mutabaazi be ordered to cover his treatment costs.
