The elderly mother of city businessman Daniel Jakana has tabled fresh evidence, indicating she had placed a caveat on the land her son had fraudulently sold to Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA). According to Edith Nagujja’s lawyers, the caveat is still intact to-date yet KCCA continues to insist it bought a clean Title. But basing on the fresh evidence, the old woman contends what Jakana sold to KCCA was nothing but hot air. The case has now sucked in the commissioner of land registration.
The widow wants the commissioner to be summoned to explain to court how he was able to issue a Title to KCCA, at the time when her caveat was still present on her mother Title. She rejects KCCA’s and Jakana’s assertions that she was served through her postal office box number, asking her to go to the commissioner of land registration’s office to show cause why the caveat she had placed on the land shouldn’t be removed.
She wonders how, if her caveat was removed from her mother Title, as it is claimed, it is still again present there. Following the fresh revelations by the widow, the deputy registrar of the High Court’s Land Division, Agnes Alumu, has set June 1st this year for her lawyers to formally apply for the commissioner’s appearance. She wants the commissioner to produce the White page of the Title to show whether her caveat is still there.
And if it is no longer there, she wants the commissioner to explain under what circumstances it was removed and while it’s still present on her own copy. Nagujja, in civil Suit No. 1090/19 of the High Court of Uganda at Kampala, Land Division, is seeking legal redress over 0.066 acres comprised in LRV 4552 FOLIO 13 BLOCK 203 PLOT 11780 Land at Kazo, Kyaddondo, that was allegedly sold to Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) by her son Daniel Jakana and his company of Jakana Foods Ltd, in disregard of an existing caveat.
Nagujja holds an equitable interest claim that the current proprietor, Jakana Foods LTD owned by Daniel Jakana, having been registered thereon without her consent as a kibanja holder, was subject to Civil Suit No. 1099 of 2019 which seeks for cancellation of the impugned Certificate of Title which was duly registered.
In the face of the said Plaintiff’s caveat, KCCA transacted with Jakana Foods LTD, leading to the mutation of 0.066 acres off the described land for purposes of construction of a drainage channel yet the caveat was at the time still intact.
