Currently Mpigi Central Police station is faced with the challenge of housing


Officers at Mpigi Police Station gear up for deployment recently. (Senior officers have been told to leave the barracks).

Senior Police officers at Mpigi Central Police Station have been asked to vacate houses in the police barracks and rent rooms outside the barracks.

In the letter dated 23rd May 2016, authored by the District Police Commander, Ahmad Kimera Sseguya, he directed all officers from the rank of Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) and above to immediately vacate the houses where they are currently staying.

According to Kimera, all officers from the rank of Assistant Superintendent of Police and above are not allowed to sleep in the police barracks because they receive housing allowance in their salary every month.

“We have junior officers who are renting outside the barracks yet they are supposed to sleep inside the Police barracks, these senior officers are supposed to sleep outside the barracks and not inside because their housing allowances are consolidated in the salary” Kimera said.

Currently there are nine Senior Police officers sleeping in houses inside the barracks at Mpigi Central Police station who are facing eviction according to Kimera.

Kimera added that Cadet Officers are however excused because they are not yet confirmed ASPs and therefore they do not receive housing allowances.

Currently, the station is faced with the challenge of housing.

One of the officers who is facing eviction but preferred enormity, said the directive came at a time when they have no money to rent rooms outside the barracks and that they are expensive which they cannot afford now.

“We cannot afford to rent rooms outside the barracks now because they are expensive, we are still looking for money to take our children to school and they are now asking us to leave the barracks” he said.

Buganda Land Board’s Chief Executive Officer Kiwalabye Male

The Buganda Land Board wrote to the Uganda National Roads Authority (Unra) commission of inquiry raising concerns on land compensation.

The board noted that the Kabaka has never been compensated since the inception of Unra and that they demand nearly Shs 10 billion for Unra’s failure to pay the Kabaka. This prompted the commission to ask the Buganda Land Board chief executive officer, David Kyewalabye Male, to re-appear at the inquiry.

The inquiry, chaired by Justice Catherine Bamugemereire, has commissioners Patrick Rusongoza, Abraham Nkata, Ben Okello Luwum and Richard Mongati, with Andrew Kasirye as lead counsel. ZAHRA ABIGABA brings you excerpts from the proceedings:


Kasirye: What is your name?

Kyewalabye: I am David Kyewalabye Male.

Kasirye: How old are you?

Kyewalabye: I am 46 years old.

Kasirye: What do you do for a living?

Kyewalabye: I work as the chief executive officer of the Buganda Land Board.

Kasirye: When did you join the Buganda Land Board?

Kyewalabye: Since February 2007.

Kasirye: What is the Buganda Land Board?

Kyewalabye: The Buganda Land Board is a company mandated with the management of all the land vested in his royal highness the Kabaka of Buganda. This mandate includes the collection of all rental and related income accruing from the use of the Kabaka’s land, including compensation by the state and related organs or bodies.

Kasirye: What are the complaints you are bringing on behalf of the Kabaka and the Buganda Land Board against the Uganda National Roads Authority?

Kyewalabye: Our complaint as the Buganda Land Board on behalf of the Kabaka is with regard to the failure and the refusal by Unra to provide the Kabaka with compensation for the use and acquisition of large tracts of land in spite of various demands and reminders to pay. My lord, what puzzles us is that leasehold tenants and bibanja tenants continue to be compensated while the Kabaka is completely ignored.

Kasirye: Do you know the roads /areas affected and Unra never compensated?

Kyewalabye: The areas include Kibuye-Entebbe phase 2 which was completed in 1998 but up-to-date we have not seen any attempts at payment for Kibuye-Zzana (a 5km stretch), Kampala Northern bypass, Masanafu-Bukalagi-Namungona-Kasubi; all these have not been compensated yet works are going on. Then we have got the Entebbe expressway, which also includes the Munyonyo spur, Kigo, Lunya, Buggu-Kibiri-Kirindi and Mutungo, Mpigi-Maddu, Sembabule road, Lukalu B, Kiriti Sabwe hill, Kabasanda, Mirembe and Ngomanene villages. Mukono-Kyetume [the famous Katosi road], Kisoga-Nyenga road and the affected areas include Kiyola, Katosi central and Kiwologoma villages.

Kasirye: Are there any other complaints you have to table before the commission?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord. There are titles given to third parties on the Kabaka’s land without going through the normal process and the areas affected are Munyonyo block 255 and plot 98. The Uganda land commission issued these titles [but] they were fraudulently acquired.

Kasirye: What does that particular road have to do with Unra?

Kyewalabye: The claimants at Munyonyo road have already contacted Unra with their fake titles and compensation is done. Again, the same block 93 where the Catholic shrine is, Mr Obey got the titles on the same piece of land and claims have been passed on to Unra and Unra seems to have recognised it and we are asking for the titles to be recalled and cancelled.

We, therefore, request the commission to go on with the investigations and verify all titles issued on this land before any payments are being made. Otherwise, we will suffer irrecoverable damages if these dubious payments are made at our own expense. And our humble prayer to the commission is that, ‘make all necessary recommendations to enable the payments of all dues that are by law ours.’

Kasirye: Is there any other thing you would like to add?

Kyewalabye: The issue with Kampala northern bypass, Unra took titles and has not returned them. Unfortunately, the Kabaka’s land titles comprise huge chunks of land, like 300-600 acres of land. Unra takes land titles and takes ages without returning them and this affects other tenants on the Kabaka’s land.

Kasirye: Do you know how much Unra is supposed to pay Buganda Land Board?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord. It is close to Shs 10 billion.

Kasirye: And do you know the acreage of land to be compensated?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord. It is close to 70 acres of land. And if Unra fails to pay the Buganda Land Board in the given time we have given them, then the matter will be taken to court.

Mongati: Mr Kyewalabye, I just want clarification. The normal procedure is that when they are paying kibanja owners, the mailo owner or superior owner must approve. Has this been done?

Kyewalabye: In some cases, my lord, but not all.

Mongati: So, are you saying that bibanja owners have been paid sometimes without the consent of the owner?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord.

Mongati: Do you know these cases?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord. We have evidence, for instance on the Mpigi-Maddu road, but I think they are quite a number of them.

Nkata: Is the Kabaka’s land, wherever it is available, well demarcated? Are there maps and plans one can see?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord. We have titles and in some areas the boundaries have been opened, but various consultants have been involved in these processes. They know how best you can arrive at this.

Nkata: For the interest of the general public, do people know where the Kabaka’s land starts and stops, especially in the central region?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord, they do.

Nkata: Soon Salama road is going to be worked on and I am aware that there are multiple land tenures on that road and the issue that has always been contagious is people claiming that they are on Kabaka’s land. Then there are also princesses and royals on that land that claim that it is their land and also landowners. Has this matter been clarified because, as the Munyonyo road will be worked on, this matter is likely to delay the public good because of that unclear demarcation of land? Can you assure the public that this matter has been sorted?

Kyewalabye: Thank you, my lord. As you are aware, the Kabaka is a land title holder, not kibanjas holder; so, once it is titled land, it is very clear with demarcations and we work with land surveyors. And even the various royals who hold land, they are also indicated on the titles and the 1993 Act that invested the land to Kabaka indicates the royals; either it’s the Namasole, Katikkiro, Omulamuzi. But once we have the titles, that is no problem.

We have always requested Unra to work with Buganda Land Board when it comes to Kabaka’s land. The Kabaka is a very big landlord, not somebody who just holds two or three acres of land. We are very committed to this because we are interested parties to the development of this country and, in any case, when these roads are done, the Kabaka benefits more because it uplifts the value of the land.

Bamugemereire: Thank you very much and we appreciate that you have found the commission useful in assisting you to investigate this matter further. We will do our best and I hope that you find the answers.

Kattikiro wa Buganda akyaye okwanirizibwa nga Kabaka wa Buganda---Owebweru?
 
On January 28, 2015, in a move that may surprise both his admirers and detractors, the Katikkiro of Buganda Charles Peter Mayiga announced that Buganda chiefs and other hosts must stop welcoming him to their areas in a manner which should be reserved for the Kabaka. The televised announcement came after more than a year of complaints by Baganda of different walks of life that the Katikkiro was trying to replace centuries-old Baganda cultural institutions and traditions by expanding his powers and responsibilities beyond what the Baganda constitution (Ennono) allows.
 
 

Addressing Ssaza (county) and Ggombolola (sub-county) chiefs, at Bulange Mengo, the Katikkiro told them that going forward, they must stop welcoming him in a style that befits the Kabaka. People must stop erecting archways (ebiyitirirwa) for him, prostrating before him and doing other things that should be reserved for welcoming the Kabaka. Speaking in Luganda, Mayiga said, “In the past I have been to many events where I am inappropriately welcomed, although I cannot blame you because of the high excitement you may have. However, you must reserve those types of welcomes for the Kabaka.”

Since he got his job, Mayiga has endured frequent criticism from members of the Buganda royal clan (Abalangira), Baganda youth organizations (Nkoba za Mbogo, BANGAWA and Ffe Buganda Nze Buganda), Baganda groups in Diaspora and many ordinary Baganda who accused him of, among other things, attempting to destroy Buganda’s cultural foundation. The fact that Katikkiro Mayiga has been a key player in several widely unpopular Buganda deals with President Museveni (Regional Tier and MOU) and, recently, the Aga Khan plan to commercialize the Kabaka’s Palace, has widened the divide between the Katikkiro and traditional Baganda of all shades.

One of the most visible and contraversial practices by Katikkiro Mayiga is his use of a large motorcade, with a heavy detail of AK-47 totting Uganda Special Forces soldiers which project military power on his tours around Buganda. And the fact that the tour organizers often erect archways (ebiyitirirwa) and hire boda-bodas (motorcycle taxis) to enhance crowds and excitement.  Many traditional Baganda allege that this is clear evidence that Mr. Mayiga is trying to overshadow the Kabaka and isolate him from his people. Mr. Mayiga’s announcement on Wednesday seems to have been directed at addressing this issue.

Notably, one group of people that has consistently stood behind Mr. Mayiga and his programs are certain Kampala traders, money lenders, sports betting operators and local real-estate investors. And for the most part, Mr. Mayiga’s wealthy supporters have helped him raise billions of shillings under his Ettofaali campaign. Even most of his detractors privately admit that Mayiga has done an impressive job in inspiring Baganda to wake up and believe that they do not want to be victims forever. Lately, however, there are signs that both Baganda and other Ugandans are starting to develop Ettofaali fatigue and the awakened Baganda seem to be expecting Katikkiro Mayiga to start delivering from the billions of Shillings that he has collected.

The audio recording below is one example of the many speeches that have been made in protest of  Mr. Mayiga’s policies. Ow’ek. Ssewava Sserubiri, former minister in Buganda Government, made that speech in mid-2014, at a party organized by Nkoba za Mbogo student’s organization.

Traditional, religious and political leaders in Uganda, Kenya and York in Britain have paid homage to the late Bishop of the Equatorial Africa James Hannington at the Hannington Shrine in Budimo village, Busia District.

Religious leaders led by Archbishop of York John Sentamu, Bishop of Bukedi Diocese Simon Bogere Egesa and Bishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Tororo Emmanuel Obbo among others, attended the function on Wednesday.

For the first time in more than a century, the great grandsons of the chiefs of the two kingdoms where Bishop Hannington was loved and where he was killed, met.

Chief Luba Munulo Juma, the great grandson of chief Luba in whose dominion (Busoga) and on whose orders Hannington was killed, met with chief Peter Mumia II, the great grandson to Paramount chief of the Wanga Kingdom Nabongo Mumia, who had given Hannington porters and guides to Kabaka Mwanga’s palace.

The paramount chief later allowed Bishop Hannington’s remains to be buried in his territory at the cost of his people.

During his visit to the shrine, Archbishop Sentamu commissioned the construction of the administration block of Bishop of York Bible College, Canterbury Square, Hannington Tabernacle Chapel and the York Gardens in Budimo.

Sentamu’s visit was crowned by the ecumenical service conducted by bishops Bogere Egesa and Obbo.

The head of the organising committee, Justice James Ogoola, said Archbishop Sentamu’s visit was not only a religious symbol, but a reconciliation ceremony between the people of Luba in Uganda and their counterparts from Mumias in western Kenya.

“I wanted to reconcile the descendants of the two dramatists in Hannington’s last days. One gave him escorts and guides, the other killed him. The two families met for the first time and I made sure I gave each of them a Lusamia Bible and asked them to shake hands as a sign of reconciliation,” Justice Ogoola, also the chairperson of the Uganda Judicial Commission, said.

The place was first dedicated by then Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey in 1998, as a Hannington shrine.

Chief Luba Munulo Juma in his remarks said: “I don’t feel guilty for what my great grandfather did, the bishop died because of his stubbornness before the cultural leader.”

Chief Peter Mumia II said Bishop Hannington was a Christian not an explorer, killed by those who did not understand him.

More developments

According to Justice Ogoola, plans are also underway to make the shrine a national pilgrimage for Christians to remember Bishop Hannington for his sacrifice for the new Christian faith that had just arrived in the middle of the continent of Africa during 1888.

Nantaba wants elderly scheme probed

Kayunga. Outgoing Lands state minister Ida Nantaba has asked the Inspector General of Government to investigate how the outgoing Kayunga District leadership selected beneficiaries of the Senior Citizens Grant given to elderly persons.

Ms Nantaba, who is also the district Woman MP, claims the 100 elderly persons per sub-county in the district were selected based on sectarian and political grounds.

“It hurts me as a leader to find that more than 900 beneficiaries of the senior citizens’ grant in this district all come from the same area and are from almost one tribe. I ask the IGG to take interest in this matter and probe how these beneficiaries were selected,” Ms Nantaba said on Tuesday.

Take oath

This was during the swearing-in of the district LC5 chairperson, Mr Tom Sserwanga, and his councillors at Ntenjeru District headquarters.

The grant, one of the core components of the Social Assistance Grant for Empowerment, started in 2010 with financing by government and development partners.

Kayunga is among the districts where the programme will be rolled out during this financial year.

However, the Elderly and Disabled Affairs State minister, Mr Sulaiman Madada, dismissed the claims by Ms Nantaba, saying beneficiaries had been selected on merit.

The former district LC5 chairman, Mr Steven Dagada said: “The selection of beneficiaries was based on age, but also on who is in more need for assistance.”

KAMPALA, UGANDA.

The Constitutional Court has ruled that police was wrong to prevent the Kabaka of Buganda from visiting his subjects in Kayunga district on September 12, 2009.

In a majority ruling of three to two, Justices Remmy Kasule, Egonda–Ntende and Rubby Opio Aweri concurred with the four petitioners, all Buganda kingdom subjects, that it is everyone’s right to move freely, reside or settle in any part of the country. The judges concluded that the Kabaka was exercising his constitutional right of free movement.

“The role of the Uganda Police was to regulate and put in place security measures to ensure that both Baganda and the Banyala who had threatened to demonstrate over the said visit are safe,” the judges noted.

The judges ordered government to pay costs of the case to the petitioners. There is no compesation whatsover for those who lost their lives and property. Mr Edward Lugonvu, Dr Adam Kimala, Mr Charles Ssenkungu and Ms Saida Najjuka. However, two of the judges - Eldard Mwangusya and Prof Lillian Tibatemwa, dissented and agreed with the government that blocking the Kabaka’s visit was to ensure peace because there was imminent chaos.

Uganda National Road Authority has been conned of billions of shillings by fake claimants on Buganda land.

By FREDERIC MUSISI

Posted  Sunday, May 3  2015 

  

Kampala,State of Buganda- 

The Inspector General of Government (IGG) has launched investigations into how the Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) was fleeced of billions of shillings by fake claimants who received compensation for the land along the Kampala-Entebbe Expressway yet the land belongs to government.

The land

The land is a government gazzetted Central Forest Reserve in Wakiso District.

Documents seen by Sunday Monitor indicate that Wakiso District surveyors and some UNRA officials processed several titles for the forest reserve land owned by the National Forestry Authority (NFA), a government agency.

A huge amount of money, which is not yet ascertained but estimated in billions, was paid out to fake claimants and the IGG Justice Irene Mulyagonja intervened when another Shs4 billion was about to be paid to the masqueraders in July 2014. She subsequently suspended the compensation for the road project.

“We have taken serious note of your directive and information regarding the intended fraud and have, as directed, halted all payments under the project. However, we are concerned that the blanket freeze of all compensation payments rather than in the forest area where the alleged illegalities happened, may have far wider ramifications,” former UNRA executive director Ssebbugga Kimeze wrote to the IGG on August 6, 2014.

He noted that the road project funders, China’s Exim Import Bank, were getting jittery over the slow progress on the road construction because of the unconcluded compensation of the Project Affected Persons (PAPs).

The IGG waived the suspension of the compensation payments except for the contentious forest area, covering three villages of Nakigalala, Katale and Kajjansi.

“We have reviewed our directive and agreed that the directive be revised to cover payments of compensation claims around the forest reserve area,” Justice Mulyagonja wrote back to UNRA on August 19, 2014.

“The order will also include stopping compensation claims premised on certificates for land that were issued after the survey and gazetting of the Kampala-Entebbe Express Highway alignment, which was done on February 8, 2013,” the IGG added.

The IGG spokesperson, Ms Ali Munira, said the investigations are still ongoing but declined to reveal details on the progress.

There are documents showing several plots had been parceled out of the forest reserve with people’s names tagged to them as bona fide owners.

On December 14, 2014, the IGG wrote to NFA seeking clarification on whether the land titles were of the land in the Central Reserve Forest in the three villages.

A report submitted by NFA signed by the executive director Michael Mugisa on March 3, 2015, disowned the titles and described the claimants as masqueraders.

“Under legal notice number 7 of 1932, Kajjansi Forest was demarcated class of forest. The forest referred to as crown land (CL) 467, mapped on sheet numbers 71/3 as per the statutory instruments of 1932, 148 and 1998. 

The plots surveyed are found within the CFR (Central Forest Reserve),” Mr Mugisa wrote.

Mr Mugisa told Sunday Monitor on Friday that the problem originated from the Lands ministry and Wakiso District lands office.

The partitioned plots are more than 20 belonging to various individuals, including D. Migereko, Ms R. Namubiru, and Ms S. Mbeguya. Others are: Mr R. Eku, Mr S. Kyako & two others, Intraco (U) Limited, Mr J. Baluruno, Mr M. Lubega, Mr Y. Ssenteza & Ms L. Mwende, Lala Apartments, Mr N. Nsubuga, Mr H. Mukasa, Ms J. M. Nabateregga, Ms H. Nassuna, Mr M. Kamoga, Mr H. Mugumya and Mr R. Ssempala.

Common fraud

The UNRA head of corporate communications, Mr Dan Alinange, admitted the IGG is investigating the dubious acquisition of the NFA land and the contested compensations to the claimants. He said it is “highly possible” that it is Wakiso District officials who created the fake titles on the government land.

“They must have apportioned the land to themselves when they learnt that a big project was passing through their area. Usually, government officials build structures overnight because they want to be paid and it is a big challenge for us,” Mr Alinange said.

He said if NFA says the land is a forest reserve, they also have to present a title for the area.

 

 
Kiwalabye Male (R) during the interview

Over the last 20 years, KIWALABYE MALE, the chief executive officer of Buganda Land Board (BLB), has served Buganda kingdom in various capacities notably as CEO of BUCADEF, and royal treasurer. Kiwalabye recently spoke to Deo Walusimbi about his management of Buganda’s land. 

What is the difference between the land being managed by Buganda Land Board and Kabaka’s land?

Statutorily, all land that was returned to Kabaka by virtue of the 1993 act is under management of Buganda Land Board…and the land returned in 2013 by MOU [between the central government and Mengo].

However, with the recent changes in the institution, whereby there has been segregation between land and property management, BLB manages all kingdom’s land, but doesn’t manage the buildings on there and that is the difference.

So, what constitutes Kabaka’s land?

There is private land belonging to Kabaka as a person which people normally confuse with that of Buganda, but Kabaka’s land is under custodianship of the royal treasury. But for us, we manage that land where Ronald Mutebi is appearing as Kabaka.

It’s almost a song by every Muganda to demand Buganda’s 9,000 square miles from government. May I know their boundaries?

Those 9,000 miles come from the famous 1900 agreement where land was distributed by the British in various categories to chiefs, institutions, the kingdom, etc. But those 9,000 miles don’t include the administrative units like counties, forests, swamps and wetlands.

When Buganda was getting its independence in 1962, the Duke then returned what belonged to Buganda and they set up BLB by an act of Parliament to run what was popularized as 9,000 miles. But when the constitution was abrogated in 1967, the Kabaka was overthrown and all that land became public land –  including land which belonged to Kabaka.

Can you estimate how much land was returned by the MOU vis-à-vis the land still in the hands of government?

That MOU virtually returns a big part of Buganda’s land because when you read it, it says, all that land confiscated by former regimes is hereby returned to Buganda and what remains is to segregate.

We have not received titles for most of this land; we have just received 123, but the way the land law works, even if I don’t have a title but a notice has been given and there is an instrument, that land belongs to the Kabaka; because even now we are still receiving titles on the 350 square miles which was returned in 1993… 

How are you as BLB planning to develop Buganda land now under your control?

Our mandate changed. In the past, BLB had the mandate to manage and develop the land; that is why Muganzilwazza building in Katwe was built. But with the restructuring of the kingdom, BLB cannot put up such a building anymore because it was made to function like Uganda Land Commission; we are custodians of land.

We can plan for it, yes, but we [then] attract various developers. Now (of course) there are other bodies like Buganda Investments and Commercial Investments Ltd, and Namulondo Investments, which is a property management entity and any other body the kingdom would wish.

Who issued that moratorium against you and what motivated it?

I think it was realigning various institutions of the kingdom because in the past, there was only BLB. But now with the new system headed by katikkiro [Peter Mayiga], they sat as cabinet, they [focused] on what we did best and I think they said, BLB has strategically placed itself in land management.

Since those various roles were taken away, you can now find BLB in Kabula, Kalangala, Ssese, Buvuma, etc because I have moved on to concentrate on what I can do best which is land management.

Don’t you feel as BLB’s head, your wings clipped by the new system?

Not at all because even what they took from us is still on land; how would you have a building without negotiating with BLB? They only, strategically, just put things in the right direction.

People often accuse BLB of unreliability through introducing various ways of how one becomes a bona fide occupant on  land belonging to the Kabaka, citing an example of KK. This company was contracted by the kingdom to register tenants in Kampala at Shs 820,000 per plot, but you are now re-doing the exercise under a different (ebbaluwa entongole) arrangement. What is going on?

Actually, BLB is one of the most reliable land bodies in the country and we have got an award from Uganda Land Alliance for excelling in sensitizing people about land issues. 

For somebody to be a bona fide occupant on land, it’s not courtesy of BLB, but it’s by law. So, there is no way BLB can come and say you are not bona fide. [But] Land is about wealth, value. So, you can’t say, you have something valuable without any documentation for it. 

So, our vision as BLB is to ensure that people secure their tenancy. It doesn’t mean that they don’t have it now, but it’s not secure without documentation. We are not changing positions; we are, through companies like KK, only helping people to secure their tenancy.

But KK  was accused of defrauding people!

KK was a good idea which was abused. I think the kingdom got the right gun and gave it to a mad man because it gave it to a wrong person, I participated in the pre-talks (with KK) because I was the royal treasurer then, but before it was concluded, I went for further studies in UK.

But one of the things I had recommended was that these [KK] people should never be allowed to touch people’s money; they should only do the consultancy work. But when some of us left, the controllers of the institution gave them  [KK] a blank cheque and they even stopped people from paying money to BLB.

They [KK] set up an office in Kabaka Anjagala and got agents in Mengo who were telling people that there is no business in Mengo, go to KK. So, these people lost interest in organising people on Kabaka’s land yet the principal idea was to identify people on Kabaka’s land.

You cannot set up an agency to work on Kabaka’s land and cut out the principal agent (BLB) who has got the specialty to oversee the land and let the [agency] report to katikkiro’s office. With all due respect, I know Owek. [Dan] Muliika would not like this, but that was a mistake.

Who owns this KK?

The man died sometime back…he was called Mr Kabuye and he was staying abroad; but he had children who are managing it.

So, what did you do about KK?

When I came back, I participated in the process of cancellation of that exercise and said let them take money meant to be a processing fee, but give us the information. And they failed in both providing the information and passing on the money.

So, you make tenants registered by KK to repay for the same?

We terminated everything and gave people time and whoever had paid money to KK with receipt should give us fresh papers and we never asked for a shilling from those people KK registered.

So, whoever registered with KK and came to BLB has a file with us and that was taking responsibility as a kingdom –  that a mistake had been made, but these are Kabaka’s subjects. However, we are carrying on with registration because in land economics, land without a title has no value.

If you want to realise this, wait when government [wants to build a road through your untitled plot]. However beautiful house you have put on it, they will tell you to go to the landlord.

That is why we are telling our people that this is good for you and that is why we did it in Nansana under a different arrangement with a special survey scheme for Shs 650,000. It’s all intended to ensure that these people have got security of tenure… thus introduction of [ebbaluwa entongole].

What steps are you taking to curb fraud amongst BLB staff?

We have zero tolerance for such malpractices and there are many staff we have terminated in some of these cases. There is a fresh case of somebody who has even gone to police where one of [our] staff took over his kibanja and built a house.

So, we terminated that staff and we supported this old man to prosecute him. The problem is that people have made corruption part of their life and they think that they can’t get a service without paying money. That is why some complain that Kiwalabye is one of the hardest people to see in Mengo because I don’t believe in that style of work.

Sometime, people make allegations without evidence; but if anybody has evidence against any staff, they should come forward.

Another problem is that some of our staff give an impression that they bring money to us [the heads] because some of our names feature out there. But why would you pay money if the property is rightfully yours? 

We have got a whistle- blowers’ line which is free, and we are putting in place various mechanisms to combat [fraud]. 

Talking about the katikkiro and the restructuring of the system on the start of his reign, how are you finding it working with a man who is rumoured to be extremely strict?

I have worked with katikkiro for a long time in various capacities. So really, I have no problem working with him.

What he stands for is what the kingdom stands for and katikkiro works in Kabaka’s [name]. If I have a problem working with the Katikkkiro, it means I have a problem working with the Kabaka. 

When he says ‘be accountable’, how can that be a problem? If he says ‘be customer-responsive’ –  and he keeps on writing these letters. As somebody who is progressive, I must follow and I am part of the key stakeholders because this revolution is for us because I have a background of Nkobazambogo.

He is very tight on what he wants, and the good thing is that I am also tight on my staff.

So, have you now dropped your ambitions to join politics in Kiboga?

I offered myself to serve Kabaka. The positions I have held in the kingdom, it is not a matter of myself wishing to go because I have gone from the lowest to the highest level.

So, it’s not a simple matter to leave this higher position to go for a constituency in Kiboga. I know there have been pressures from Kiboga people [although] I am from Mityana; [but] wishing is one thing and going is another. Most importantly, I have not talked to the people who are supposed to clear me. So, I am not standing anywhere and when time comes to serve the country, I will.

As BLB, you are in position to know how Nabagereka primary school was demolished; would you like to tell us?

Nabagereka P/S is not a kingdom school, but it was built by government after Lubiri had been taken over by the army. There were two schools, but the people couldn’t access the military barracks and government looked for land and maintained the name.

Fortunately or unfortunately, they put them on Buganda land. What people don’t know is that in 2006, a private developer called Boost Investments approached Uganda Land Commission which was now the controlling authority of that land.

ULC leased out those plots [housing Nabagereka P/S] to Boost Investments under minute 13/2006 A485 of Uganda Land Commission. We told them that ‘you are leasing out our land’ and then Boost approached BLB to be regularized within the law.

It surrendered the lease it had with ULC for a conditional lease of surrender. So, BLB simply regularised the lease and if [ULC] says it never leased the school, then we don’t know what it means unless its shows you when it refunded the developer’s money.

So, Buganda kingdom has got nothing to do with the demolition of Nabagereka P/S and many cases will appear like that with the returned land because [land] had already been given away.

How far have you gone with surveying the returned land?

We have recovered about eight square miles, but it’s a big exercise because you have to open the boundaries and do proper survey and identify who are there…

What do you make of continuous attacks by Tamale Mirundi?

Who is he?

He is a presidential spokesperson.

Maybe you know his job description, for me, I don’t. I can’t talk about him because if you tell me that he is a spokesman for the president and he is speaking for me, then I really wonder.

But I have not listened to him. I just hear people talking about it, but practically, I am somebody who wants to listen to what adds value and I want to listen to somebody who has got a trail of what we can talk about.

But BLB has got a feedback system, whether negative or positive, without waiting for people who we don’t know whether they are speaking under the influence of anything. 

What challenges have you encountered while serving this kingdom? 

They are quite enormous. There is a feeling that the kingdom is us and whatever we say is what goes on. That is a challenge because you get [a lot of] resistance on the way. There are those who think that if they can be able to put you down, they have won the whole battle; but we ignore them as I have told you [regarding] Tamale Mirundi. 

The institution has no resources, but I have no one to blame because I am supposed to participate in creating resources for this kingdom. [There is also a tendency] by some people who want to discuss land matters when they have little kind of information; it is a challenge. And then the workload, but we are training people in terms of work culture, and capacity. And of course, lastly, people on Kabaka’s land don’t want to meet their obligations; they think that waving to the Kabaka is enough…

Some of your critics claim you are part of a Mengo clique which pulls down whoever initiates new systems.

Who has come here and has been thrown out, courtesy of us?

They cite Owek Muliika whose reign hardly lasted a year.

Which systems did he [Muliika] introduce? Let him print a copy of systems he produced to people. That is the biggest mistake people make; when they come to serve here, they think that the kingdom has started with them.

They think whoever has been in Mengo is foolish and has just been making mistakes and now with them the Kabaka has chosen a wise group to come and prevail on foolish ones.

No! Whoever is brought on board is brought to add value.  The person they allege is Owek. Muliika, but I never worked with him; I came back from studies when he was on his way out because he didn’t last for one year.

I don’t think there is anybody who has brought strict systems here like Owek. Mayiga. Why is it that he is going [into] his third year with us?
