Masindi Golf Club Trustees Withdraw Case Against District Land Board

During the High Court sitting on Thursday, Richard Akuzigibwe and Ronald Murungi from Kabalega Advocates and legal consultants who represented the registered Trustees argued that the plaintiff had lost interest in the case.
Masindi Golf Club Registered Trustees have withdrawn a case in which they had sued the Attorney General, Masindi district land board and Masindi municipality for trespassing. 

In 2017, the registered trustees through Guma and company advocates dragged the three entities to court accusing them of aiding Masindi High Court to trespass on their land.

The land measuring 0.3610 hectares is where Masindi High Court was constructed. It is located along with Baitwa road in Northern cell Masindi municipality.  It was allocated to Masindi High Court by the district land board in 2017.

On Thursday, Richard Akuzigibwe and Ronald Murungi from Kabalega Advocates and legal consultants who represented the registered Trustees told court that the registered trustees had numerous discussions with the Attorney General, Masindi district land board, Commissioner land registration and Central division and a consensus was agreed that the matter is withdrawn.  

Justice Paul Wolimbwa Gadenya accepted the withdrawal of the case but advised the parties to meet their costs.  

But Ian Musinguzi from Musinguzi and Company advocates the lawyer representing Central division insisted that the plaintiffs meet the costs and demanded for 1.2 billion shillings which were rejected by Justice Gadenya.

Addressing journalists outside the court, Oscar Baitwa one of the registered trustees explained that they accepted to withdraw the matter after having a mediation meeting between the registered trustees and the four parties.

According to Baitwa, the meeting was chaired by, Albert Rugadya Atwooki, the former Resident Judge Masindi High Court who advised them to settle the matter amicably.
