President Museveni has tasked the Speaker of Parliament, Anita Among to explain whether she owns a house in the United Kingdom or she’s renting it on Waterden Road in London, UK.

In a letter dated May 23, Museveni demanded the Speaker to detail about the alleged ownership of a house located along Waterden Road in London, UK, which is said to be one of her properties in British territory.

“I have got information that is contrary to what you told me, that you, indeed, own a house in London in the form of Flat 4, Silk House, 7 Waterden Road, London, E20 3AL, United Kingdom. Do you own that house or are you renting it?,” Mr Museveni stated in a letter.

“By copies of this letter, I direct the Minister of Foreign Affairs to contact the UK Government and get details regarding this house. The IGG is also informed,” the letter reads further.

The letter which the President copied to the Inspector General of Government and Minister of Foreign Affairs is said to have been responded to two days ago according to parliament sources.

However, immediately after Museveni’s letter came out,  Speaker Among via her  X handle said that all these are allegations and instead insisted that the UK are forging the evidence table before the President.

“Since the UK government claims I own property, it should be prudent of them to state which property I own as Anita Annet Among. Forgery should be the least the world can expect from them,” Among said.

“I am sure this is the answer my President, our government, and myself want from them. Nothing else. The alleged house plot, Flat 4, Silk House, 7 Waterden Road, London, E20 3AL, United Kingdom, which they informed the President is owned by myself, surely has an owner who is registered in their own system (the UK Government), and this owner, as per their own record, is not Anita Among,” she added.

All these issues  are propelling following the UK sanctions against Among as and other former Karamoja ministers—Mary Goretti Kitutu and Agnes Nandutu—following their involvement in the iron sheets (mabaati) theft scandal.

Among further noted that the alleged house plot, Flat 4, Silk House, 7 Waterden Road, London, E20 3AL, United Kingdom, which they informed the President is owned by her surely has an owner who is registered in their own system (the UK Government), and this owner, as per their own record, is not Anita Among.

“Fellow Ugandans, while this matter is exciting to some because of our own internal political contradictions and intrigue, I insist and wish to alert all, soundly, that the issue is not the alleged corruption or ownership in the UK. The attempts to forge and claim that I own property when their own records show the contrary tell it all. The real crux of the matter is about targeting Anita Among for being vocal against homosexuality. The rest is a cover-up. The truth will set me free. (John 8:32),” Among said.
