Ex-Buganda AG in Land Row

Former Buganda Attorney General Godfrey Lule has signed a memorandum to end a yearlong land dispute in Bulansuku, Nakisunga sub-county in Mukono district.

The disputed five-acre land originally belonged to Lule’s sister, Frobia Nakayima, who inherited it from her late father. On November 1, 2013, Nakayima sold the land to David Lugya Sserunkuuma, a real estate dealer, for Shs 25m. However, Lule protested the sale, claiming he should have been offered the opportunity to buy it before Sserunkuuma.

During a community meeting called to resolve the wrangle, on Saturday November 22, 2014, Lule argued that Nakayima gave him the land on which he has been squatting for decades.

“When I wanted to build a house in 1966 when I returned from India, I asked my father and he showed me where to build [although that land belonged to Nakayima]. Nakayima said it was okay since she would also come and sleep in the house,” Lule told the meeting.

However, Nakayima denied giving the land to her brother: “I have never given my land to anyone for free. Whenever I have a problem, I sell part of my land.”

Sserunkuuma, who bought the land from Nakayima, told the meeting that he had already given Lule the first option to buy it however, Lule had reportedly failed to take up the offer, although he still claims the land. The community meeting resolved, and the parties signed, that Sserunkuuma gives Lule three month to pay for the land, or lose it to any other buyer.
