The Ministry of Gender is seeking for a supplementary budget of Shs2 billion to renovate Gaddafi National Mosque.
The supplementary budget comes at a time when there are ongoing legal matters between Uganda Muslim Supreme Council (UMSC) and a businessman Justus Kyahabwa.
Last week, The Court of Appeal dismissed Uganda Muslim Supreme Council’ (UMSC) petition which sought to halt the sale of eight properties of over Shs19 billion debts.
On June, 24, 2020, UMSC and Justus Kyabahwa entered into a sale agreement for the land comprising LRV 3693 Folio 12, Ranch 31A Land, Ssembabule. The land was allegedly occupied by squatters.
According to the agreement, both parties agreed that the squatters will be given 60 days to vacate the said land; however, after three days, Kyabahwa and his agents attacked the squatters which prompted one of the squatters to drag UMSC to court over the loss of their properties.
It is averred that the land in questions had caveats thereon. The encumbrances were allegedly known by Kyabahwa. Three years later, Kyabahwa dragged UMSC to court seeking Shs18.9 billion compensations for the said land. Court however agreed with the applicant. Following the court ruling, UMSC appealed the ruling.
Last month, Kyabahwa sought instructions from the Commercial Division of the High Court Registrar to sell eight properties. The properties a plot in Entebbe opposite Victoria Mall, two square miles of land in Migyera, plot of land at Mbale City, one acre of land on Lubas road Jinja, One square mile at Buikwe, plot of land at Kyanja, plot 23-25 old Kampala and plot 30 on William street to recover his money.
