City businessman and one of the Directors of Pioneer Easy Bus, Albert Muganga has failed to explain to the commission of inquiry into land matters about how he acquired land at Namboole stadium where Pioneer buses have secured a place for parking which is more like a bus terminal.
While facing the Commissioner Land Inquiry Mary Oduuka, who asked him if he had a valid agreement to claim that he acquired the land, he said that it was due for renewal. Muganga told the Commission that he acquired the land in a lawful manner after applying to the Uganda Land Commission. He said he was asked to pay ground and premium rent of five hundred and eighty-nine million to the land commission after reaching an agreement.
But the Commission realized that the transaction happened without the involvement of Namboole Stadium management prompting the commission to seek further clarification.
“We want to be sure that there is nothing fishy going on,” said John Bosco Suuza, the Deputy Lead Council.
Catherine Bamugemereire, the Chairperson Land Inquiry said that one of these days Muganga is going to be kicked out of the land with his pioneer buses because the Ministry of Education wants to fence off the whole of Namboole land.
