Land Probe Commission registers 9 mediation success stories
The Land Probe Commission has successfully resolved 9 Land Disputes through facilitating Mediation between the warring parties.
The Commission Chair Justice Catherine Bamugemereire, revealed that this has been possible due to the trust the parties have expressed in the said Commission, their willingness to participate in an Alternative Dispute Resolution Mechanism, and the exclusion of non-parties among others.
Among the Mediation Success Stories include 10 Families who were evicted from a government building on land located on plot 60-62 Aldina Visram road in Jinja, by businessman, Simpson Birungi, the proprietor of Birus Properties Limited who had fraudulently acquired a title for the said Property.
The Parties reached an amicable settlement and Birus Property Services Ltd paid 600mshs as compensation for the members of the said families under Aldina Twegaite Traders Association.
The Commission also successfully resolved the land dispute between a one Musinguzi Emmanuel and the wife to late Gen. Aronda Nyakayirima- Linda Patricia Aronda over a Kibanja interest on land at Rwabitosi, in Gomba District owned by the late Internal Affairs Minister.
The parties executed a memorandum of understanding in which Mrs Aronda agreed to pay Musinguzi Emmanuel 10mshs in full and final settlement of the matter.
Others were between MP Lwemiyaga County Theodore Ssekikubo and a one Mukasa Cresensio Bagarukayo whose grandfather’s land at Kabagoma measuring 641 acres in Lwemiyaga, Sembabule District had undergone several fraudulent transfers.
It was agreed that Hon.Ssekikubo and a one Muyita Kyeyune from whom Sekikubo claims to have bought a kibanja on the disputed land, to take 180acres and Cresensio Mukasa retains the 416 acres, and all parties have since taken possession of their respective portions of Land as agreed.
There is also one of City Tycoon Humphrey Nzeyi who had been dragged to the Land Probe Commission on accusations of illegally denying his neighbour access to her property in Bugolobi, Nakawa Division.
The Complainant Beatrice Musisi Yiga has since occupied her house and now enjoys the walk way and parking yard that Nzeyi had fraudulently acquired as his private property.
