As we continue to fight businessman Sudhir Ruparelia’s land grabbing iniquities, particularly in the case of Kololo SS land, the indefatigable investigator has found a backer in junior land minister, Dr. Sam Mayanja.
Mayanja should watch out. This is because he is joining the anti-land grabbing crusade at a time when colleagues, notably Kampala affairs minister, Kabuye Kyofatogabye, are disappointingly backing the likes of Sudhir to construct on the public land dubiously acquired.
Mayanja stepped out to warn Sudhir while addressing a presser at which he decried the dubious manner in which the tycoon grabbed the public school’s land, going on to shamelessly register it in names of Kampala Parents’ School, a wholly private school owned by the controversial entrepreneur himself!
Mayanja had summoned press corps to reveal to the country how he was going to hand over a total of 400 Land Titles registered on wetlands and public forests, to the State House’s Anti-corruption unit, for thorough investigation and eventual cancelation.
Dr. Mayanja has the eyes and ears of Uganda’s CEO, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. Museveni appointed Mayanja to specifically fight and bring an end to the vice of land grabbing masterminded by powerful and wealthy guys to the disadvantage of the weakest and voiceless within society, such as Kololo SS.
All being well, we are expecting the now seemingly fierce and reportedly incorruptible lands minister to deal with the Nile Perches among the land grabbers, instead of concentrating on the silver fish (mukene), the like of his ancestors in the docket used to.
If the minister fights the vice without fear or favor, and irrespective of whether the person involved is powerful or wealthy, he would go down in history as one of Uganda’s rare breeds of soldiers who helped to bring to a stop, the misery of millions of Ugandans presently being deprived of land merely because they are defenseless and underprivileged to fight back on their own.
Being Mayanja’s dogged pen soldiers, we now, exclusively and fearlessly reveal the key government officials who helped Sudhir on the way of grabbing the Public School’s land, Kololo SS. Read on.
The first one is Charles Bakkabulindi. This one was the minister of education in charge of sports at the time Sudhir questioningly leased the school’s 6-acre playground. We know for sure that this man casually gave a vote of no-objection to Sudhir which the businessman used to register himself on the land.
This stance, despite the fact that Bakkabulindi’s senior colleague, Maj. Jessica Alupo, now Vice President, and the ministry’s PS, Xavier Lubanga and successor, Dr Rose Zalwango Lukwago, had frowned and patriotically so, at the comical idea of giving away the school’s playground to an absolutely private school.
We understand Frank Tumwebaze, the Minister of the Presidency at the time, had impressed it upon the Education and Sports ministry how Sudhir’s rather Mafioso idea was too good to be missed! “This is a good idea worth supporting,” Tumwebaze claimed while recommending Sudhir’s idea to be embraced by the relevant ministry.
Joash Mayanja Nkangi
The Late Mzee Joash Mayanja Nkangi, who Sudhir had allegedly taken care of earlier on, was no wonder found to be a willing accomplice when it came to the real time of granting lease on the public land. A self-professed Born Again at the time the lease was granted to Sudhir, Mayanja happened to be the Chairman of the Uganda Land commission (ULC).While ULC is mandated with keeping public land in trustee for Ugandans, the government body has over time grown into a clearing house for dubious public acquisitions by the likes of Sudhir and company. Mayanja should therefore start treating the cancer of grabbing public land by stopping it’s autho
