A team of four Ugandans who include Lubowa Muhammad Kityo, Bogere Moses, Namanya Betty, Daphine Nakanwagi the lawful owners of land measuring over 186 acres located in Lubowa on block 269, plots 3234, 3235,3236,3237,3238,3239, and 3240 respectively have pledged to protect their ownership against whoever wants to grab their land.
The four owners have been battling in court with the National Social Security Fund – NSSF over the ownership of the land until the Court made a ruling in their favor and even ordered for compensation.
According to the documents tendered in court, the land owners dragged commissioner land Registration in court vide Misc cause No 227 of 2020 accusing him of illegally canceling of their title.
The case was before justice Ssekaana Musa who ruled that commissioner land Registration had no right to cancel the certificate of titles on the basis of forgery.
“In the premises I find that the respondent had no right to cancel the applicant’s certificate of titles on the basis of forgery and I hereby grant this application with costs to the applicants,” justice Sekana Musa’s ruling reads.
Justice Sekana says that the Court quashes the decision of the registrar and Registration canceling the certificates of title for the applicants.
The owners of the Land say they have been reliably informed that the NSSF intends to launch the commissioning of their housing project and they intend to invite President Museveni as the Chief Guest on their land without them as part of the development.
“We have gotten intelligence information that NSSF is launching the commissioning of their housing project which were built on our land which they have not yet cleared with and they have called the President of this country to be the chief Guest which is contrary to the court ruling and judgment that gave us powers on our Land,” the owners said.
