Land Probe Commission visits Gayaza disputed Land, grabbed by State House Impositor Rutagambwa.
Land Probe Commission Chair, Justice Catherine Bamugemereire intervenes in yet another Land wrangle at Buwagga and Buso Villages in Gayaza -Wakiso District where a State House impositor and Real Estate Dealer, Rutagambwa has been brutally evicting and grabbing Land of over 300 residents and selling it to fellow Bakiga tribesmen.
The Seven Member Commission visited the 3 square miles of Buso Village and 635 acres of Buwagga Village, where residents cried foul over the untold suffering Rutagambwa has subjected to them including illegal arrests and detention at Kasangati Police Station whose Officers have done more harm in helping Rutagambwa achieve his dubious objectives.
They argue that in 2011 Ruta-Ngambwa was only sold 30 acres by one of the residents, which advantage he used to in turn encroach on other people’s land using armed personnel, stick wielding men, and a tractor which graded their food, homes, graveyards and toilets, leaving them landless.
They therefore implored the Commission to help them demand for their Bibanjas back from Rutagamba and further help them ascertain the right owner of the Land who they can deal with.
The Commission was welcomed to the said Villages by the area Member of Parliament Robert Kasule Ssebunya.
In her response Justice Bamugemereire ordered Ruta-Ngambwa who was present in the meetings the Commission held with the two Villages, to take to the Commission Offices all the original land titles to the disputed land, a list of names of all the people he has sold the residents’ land to and stop further subdividing of the said land until investigations by the Commission are over.
Justice Bamugemereire also ordered Rutagambwa to produce two men a one Muhwezi and Edwin Muhereza, who have been helping him to terrorise the residents.
Rutagambwa was given between today 14th/Feb/2019 and next Week to comply with the Land Probe Commission directives.
