Authorities in Mbarara have started investigating controversies surrounding the town garbage dumping site land, Kenkombe in Kakooba division Mbarara Municipality.
In 2017, the Municipality resolved to develop it into a modern housing estate and look for alternative land for garbage disposal.
The council agreed to contract a company from Denmark, known as Transform AF, to establish there a solid waste management project
However, last year, some people, described by the then town clerk, Edward Lwanga as land grabbers dragged the Municipality to court claiming its ownership, leaving the project hanging in balance, and has failed to take off upto now.
This has now forced the office of the Resident district commissioner Mbarara to intervene and investigate the matter. Deputy RDC, Emmy Katera explains that they wat to investigate and find out who really owns the land, with rumours saying the municipal leaders sold it off.
