KAMPALA – Two men have been arrested for allegedly grabbing part of President Yoweri Museveni’s land in Gomba District.
The two suspects Segane Peter and Suuna Jimmy, were arrested by operatives of the State House Anti-Corruption Unit.
According to the head of the unit, Lt Col Edith Nakalema, the suspects grabbed the land located at Katwekambwa in Kabulasoke Sub County, Gomba District and forged five land titles out of it.
“The two fraudulently acquired 5 land titles on land already registered in the name of Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. We identified a number of lapses in the processing of the titles at the levels of the Area Land Committee, District Land Board and Ministry of Lands,” Nakalema said.
“The file in respect to the two suspects has been forwarded to the DPP. Investigations are ongoing and all those found culpable will be prosecuted,” she added.
In 2018, the Commission of inquiry into land matters has established that President Museveni’s land at Kisozi Ranch in Maddu sub-county, Ggomba district was grabbed. The Kisozi ranch manager Florence Kamatenesi said the land grabbers got a title deed for 300 acres in 2016 on the land at Katwe Kambwa hill in Ggomba district.
