ON THURSDAY, hardworking legislator Allan Mayanja Sebunya (AMS), Member of Parliament representing Nakaseke Central took on the floor of Parliament and raised a matter of Public importance concerning the delayed compensation and return of land titles to their rightful Project Affected Persons along Luweero-Kiwoko-Butalangu Road, which is currently under construction by the Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) which falls under Minister of Wprks and Transport.
Hon. Mayanja Sebunya commonly known as ‘MP Allan afaayo’ told Rt. Hon. Speaker of Parliament and Hon. Members that there is a potential risk that some of the land titles initially surrendered to UNRA might be untraceable.
“Dont be shocked if my people, title owners drag UNRA to courts of law for the business opportunities foregone by denying them access to funds from commercial banks against such titles as collateral security.” Said MP Mayanja Sebunya who has already assured his people of any support they want from him to force UNRA return their land titles as soon as possible.
Mayanja who trounced former Finance Minister Syda Bumba to be declared Nakaseke Central MP on opposition NUP ticket, asked the Works and Transport Minister Gen. Edward Katumba Wamala to tell the public, when will people’s titles be returned.
In his resonse, Gen. Katumba Wamala said UNRA wont wait to be draged to court, they will return the land titles, although he didnt specify, how soon because the land title owners wanted them back yesterday.
After the sitting, Hon. Mayanja who os known to be a hardliner if it comes to serving his voters, vowed to pressing Works Minister until UNRA returns titles of Luweero people.
For starters, MP Mayanja is among the youngest legislators in the 11th Parliament but very vocal and active.
Before Nakaseke Central sent him to the August House, he served as Speaker Buganda Youth Council (BYC), a Buganda Kingdom Youth Parliament for a period of 4 years. He is one of the most darling NUP MPs before Principal Robert Ssentamu Kyagulanyi and wife Babra Itungo Kyagulanyi.
We are told, Nakaseke central people recently chased away a certain State Minister in ruling NRM government who wants to contest against MP Mayanja Sebunya openly telling him to go and find something else to do, they are very confortable and well represented by Hon. Sebunya.
We will return to this in details in our next article.
