By Nathan Ngobi

Kakaire Adam, the Kasangati District Police Commander (DPC) and his junior officers, ASP Ainebyona OC Kiwenda and that of Busukuma police are in trouble and would face arrest any time for allegedly carrying out an illegal land eviction without the court order.

A senior top Security officer disclosed to this publication that men in both plain and uniform are trailing closely to arrest the three officers with a land broker identified as only  Kaweesi whom they executed the illegal land eviction in Kiwenda  Gayaza  Wakiso district.

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni recently appointed Brig. Gen. Lukyamuzi to head the state house department on matters of land and property illegal evictions following increased public outcry that some scrumptious  corrupt officers carry out illegal evictions.

Genesis

Mzee late Asupenesi   Nagayi  owned over 15 arches of land comprising of block 156 plots 556, 557 and 558 at Kavule (Kyadondo ) Kiwenda-Gayaza in Wakiso district.

However upon his death two of his daughters Nambiringe Ruth and Kwebagira Christine who were given powers of attorney as administrators of the land sold it to  Enock Paul Kidera Bogere alias Paul Bogere in 2003 .

According to a letter of administration signed by Justice Wilson Masalu Musene at  Nakawa  High court  Kampala in 2015  when Bogere Paul passed on the powers were given to Anneti  Nakabuyi Bogere widow to the late Bogere.

Anneti Nakabuyi told this this website that she has stayed on the land for over 20 years with her dependents  , grew crops like  banana plantations, maize , reared animals like goats and had fenced the land.

However  she was shocked on 18th July 2022 when the OC Kiwenda one ASP Ainebyona and a land broker one Kaweesi raided her home and started destroying her property, removed the fence and robbed goats in what they called eviction without any court order or served document or fronting anyone claiming ownership of the land.

“They beat up my workers, destroyed fences  looted 30 heads of goats , took birds and maliciously cut down my banana plantation on top of chasing us out of the land” Anneti Nakabuyi narrated.

She said that when they tried to ask for a court eviction order the OC Kiwenda threatened to beat  up any one demanding for documents.

She added that the following day she  went to report the matters at Kiwenda police , was chased away , went to Busukuma police where she also got the same audience and resorted to Kasangati police station here the officers told her  to leave the station or risk arrest.

However after numerous endless engagement involving high profile people including her lawyers that is when Kasangati police station entered a case reference at the night of 24th July 2022, 2100hrs. vide Kasangati police station SD  REF 58/24/07/2022 Comp:Annette BOGERE , Off  C/T/P All KAWEESI.

She noted that the charges preferred are malicious damage, criminal trespass, threatening violence and theft where her 30 goats went missing, maize and banana plantations destroyed , trees were cut and fence poles were also destroyed.

“I want justice , I have all the court documents of the land including the land titles , agreements and letters of administration of the said land” Anneti Nakabuyi told us at our media offices.

Speaking to us Luke Owoyesigyire the police spokesperson  Kampala Metropolitan said that what the officers did was illegal since they never had a court order and it tantamount to misconduct, indiscipline can also lead to dismissal from the force.

He said that the matters are to be handled by the police professional standard unit (PSU) because they are the eyes of police and what the Kasangati police officers did destroys the reputation of the police force.    

“We shall open up the files for them and if at all we discover that what they are being accused off are true then the police administration will determine the next actions against the Kasangati DPC and his junior officers” Luke Owoyesigyire added.
