THE High Court Land Division has issued an interim order stopping any interference with the land belonging to the Kabaka of Buganda situated at Maganjo B, Kimbejja Kawempe -Jinja Mawuuno.
The ordered was issued by the Court’s acting deputy Registrar Elias Kakooza following a successful application by the Kabaka through his appointed Attorney Kizito Bashir Juma who is the Head of Operations, Business Development and Corporate Affairs Buganda Land Board (BLB) seeking to stay execution of the fraudulent consent judgement that gave away the said land to a one William Galiwango.
Mr. Kizito Bashir ably demonstrated to Court the need to stay the implementation of the fraudulent consent judgement pending disposal of Kabaka’s main application seeking to set it aside.
In his affidavit, Kizito Bashir states that the Kabaka is the lawful owner of the said land which has always been preserve as a cultural site and the same is not available for sale or to be parted with by way of donation or gift.
“The consent judgement entered in March this year between Galiwango and Emmanuel Kimbugwe (Kaweesa), Joseph Kyabaggu, Ssebandeke Sezario, Ali Kayondo, Musanje Bamweyana, Herbert Ndawula, David Wasswa and George William Nakibinge giving out the disputed land to Galiwango was fraudulently procured through collusion to evict Kabaka’s agents who are in actual possession of the land.” Contends Mr. Kizito Bashir
However, Galiwango, who admitted attempting to evict Kabaka’s agents on the disputed land, claims that before reaching a mutual agreement with Kimbugwe and his group he was availed all documents detailing the history of the Mutuba of Kaweesa’s son to Kiggala, the 5th King of Buganda.
In his affidavit Galiwango says he successfully helped Kimbugwe to be reinstated as the true heir to the Mutuba of Kaweesa who was a resident of Kawempe Jinja Kalooli.
