Golden Production singer Catherine Kusasira is wanted over Shs440million, an amount she is yet to pay for land that she reportedly bought from a one Matia Mukwanga.
According to Mukwanga he sold 16 acres of land in Ngongoro, Wakiso District to Kusasira early this year for a sum of Shs640 million, with the singer reportedly paying a down payment of Shs200 million in two installments.
Mukwanga said each acre cost Shs40 million and that Kusasira was supposed to pay in three installments with the first batch of Shs100million being paid in February. He however, said she later paid another Shs100 million but has since failed to pay the balance of Shs440million.
According to the agreement, Kusasira was supposed to have completed payment three months ago, but she has gone silent, prompting Mukwanga to say he will not allow any more developments on the land until she gets all his money. He has event threatened to return her money, but Kusasira is recalcitrant and has vowed not to give up the land.
Speaking to Bukedde, she urged Mukwanga to be patient, saying that she got information he wants to sell the land to another person but she just won’t let go and promised to pay Mukwanga’s balance.
Apparently, Kusasira, who wants to construct a hotel on the land, had started developing it.
It ought to be remembered that at the time of the signing of the agreement, Kusasira was part of the musicians who performed at President Yoweri Museveni’s campaigns.
No wonder she was confident she would pay all of the Shs640 million in just six months.
