The development of 830.68 acres of land at Nsimbe and Seeta can now continue following a Mpigi High Court ruling that the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) is the rightful and registered owner of the suit land.
According to NSSF’s Managing Director, Richard Byarugaba, unscrupulous people led by a one Leo Kimalempaka went to the court claiming ownership of the same land, seeking cancellation of the Certificates of Title and an injunction stopping the Fund from utilizing and developing its land.
“The Mpigi High Court ruled that NSSF is the registered proprietor of the land, is in full possession of the land and is in advanced stages of developing the land. Court therefore refused to grant the injunction sought by the applicant,” Mr. Byarugaba said, adding that after the issue now being resolved, the Fund intends to put up a low cost housing estate.
Further, Byarugaba warned that whoever attempts to use unlawful means to take the land will be prosecuted for criminal trespass.
The Nsimbe land is one of NSSF’s real estate projects established for investments to benefit its members.
