Masindi district, Uganda Technical College-Kyema Clash Over Compensation Money
- Uganda Technical College Kyema is in conflict with Masindi district over Shillings 99 million compensation from Uganda National Roads Authority-UNRA. The money is to be paid out by UNRA as compensation for the College land that will be affected by the construction of Kigumba-Masindi-Hoima Kyenjojo road.
Jacob Akunobere, the Principal Uganda Technical College Kyema, says they were promised Shillings 99 million as compensation but they were surprised to see the district, saying the payment should be channeled through it.
However, Masindi LC V Chairman, Cosmas Byaruhanga says the land hosting Uganda Technical College Kyema belongs to the Masindi district local government.
