KCCA probes staff over school land sale


The Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) executive director has appointed a committee to investigate staff for alleged fraudulent sale of Nakivubo Settlement Primary School property.

Ms Jennifer Musisi set the probe after a tip-off from a whistleblower that the school had lost most of its buildings and a large chunk of land at the hands of the unscrupulous senior KCCA staff.

“The KCCA management set up an investigation team to inquire into the management conflicts at Nakivubo Settlement PS. In order to fulfil its [committee’s] mandate, the investigations team seeks to interface with principal actors in the school to understand the current challenges at the school and make recommendations to KCCA management for appropriate action,” Ms Musisi wrote to the school management on August 7.

The KCCA spokesperson, Mr Peter Kaujju, said the probe followed several allegations of fraudulent sale of the school’s property.

“There’s an ongoing investigation into mismanagement of schools [in Kampala] including properties of the Nakivubo Settlement Primary School,” Mr Kaujju said yesterday.
He, however, declined to give details about the investigations saying they were waiting for the probe team to do its work and give its findings.

Parliament recently released a report into sale of KCCA schools and recommended that the Inspector General of Government probes KCCA for alleged role in the sale of Nabagereka Primary School.
