Kazo: Residents accuse former Chairman of grabbing government land
Leaders and residents of Buremba town council are crying foul accusing their former LC III chairperson; George Ruyondo of grabbing over 4 acres of Sub-county land.
Ruyondo who is the current head of laity at Kyabahura Church of Uganda, was the chairperson of this Sub-county currently Buremba town council for over 17 years before he was replaced by Nicholas Murisa and later replaced by James Matagaizi, now as mayor of this town council.
These leaders and residents accuse Ruyondo of using his position to mislead other leaders to grab this land in 1995 by getting the title of more than 4 acres and yet he was given only one plot.
Joseph Ndibalema, the then chairperson of lands committee, said that they were called to confirm the land which they couldn’t recall adding that it is likely that the chairperson LC III used his position in a way they didn’t understand and he got much more land that he was given.
Ruyondo in response argued that he followed procedure to get this land title adding that whoever wants to challenge the title should go to high court but not stop developing his land.
On his intervention, the Kazo Resident District Commissioner (RDC) Al-Hajji Umar Mawiya Lule directed Ruyondo to stop the on-going clearing of the land in question before the district and Sub-county intervene.
The over 4 acres of land that was claimed borders Buremba town and is near the road that joins Bigutsyo and Kabingo.
