City businessman Ephraim Ntaganda has once again been cited in grabbing land but this time its land belonging to Nakasero government Primary School.
The contentious land is located on Plot 34 Kyadondo road and Plot 5C on Mackinon Road in Kampala where the school’s play ground is seated.
This has been revealed by the chairman of Nakasero Primary School Management Committee, Joel Bakawa Kalyesubula Sekabembe while appearing this before the Land Probe chaired by Lady Justice Catherine Bamugemeire.
Sekabembe has said that the then Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education Francis- Xavier Lubanga wrote to Uganda Land Commission advising them to halt the pending transaction between MS Prestigious Apartment ltd owned by Ephraim Ntaganda and Kanabi Bob because the transaction in which they wanted to acquire a lease on the said land was fraudulent.
However the land commission has learnt that Uganda Land Commission overlooked the letter to cancel the fraudulent deed as directed in the Auditor General’s report and went ahead to grant a 49 year lease of part of Nakasero Primary School playground to Ntaganda.
According to Sekabembe, Ntaganda and Kanabi fraudulently acquired the land through Uganda Land Commission without consulting the school management Committee and stakeholders yet the land is owned and belongs to government.
