Registrar of titles to give verdict on Kayanja land

This transfer occurred without the awareness of local leadership or the community.

Kampala: The case involving the ownership of Kayanja land has taken center stage, with Diana Nambi, the senior registrar of titles in the Ministry of Lands, set to deliver her verdict.

The land in question, situated in Kayanja cell, Karujubu division, Masindi Municipality, was formerly registered in the name of the Board of Governors of National Teachers College (NTC) Masindi.

The community of Kayanja Cell donated this land for educational purposes.

However, instead of transferring it to Kamurasi Primary Teachers College, as agreed upon by stakeholders, the land was leased for over 40 years to Magalies Distillers Uganda Limited.

Subsequently, a troubling revelation came to light when the land title was quietly transferred from Masindi National Teachers’ College (NTC) to Keith Brown, the alleged director of Magalies Distillers Uganda Limited.

This transfer occurred without the awareness of local leadership or the community.

Mayor Ronald Businge Kyomuhendo of Masindi Municipality lodged a complaint with the registrar of titles, requesting the cancellation of the lease title.

A team of leaders from Masindi municipality and the district, including Moses Kirya (district speaker), Kabakumba Labwoni Matsiko (chairperson NRM), Joab Businge (MP Masindi municipality), Florence Asiimwe (woman MP), Judith Byarugaba (LCIII chairperson Nyangahya division), and Solomon Asiimwe (LCIII chairperson Karujubu division), participated in the hearing.

The hearing held recently aimed to resolve the dispute over ownership.

Diana Nambi, the registrar of titles, instructed the leaders to verify the authenticity of the company involved.

She granted them two weeks to conduct the verification process.

Within three weeks, the leaders are expected to produce a report based on their findings.

The leaders’ doubt regarding the existence of the company prompted Nambi to task them with verifying the company’s legitimacy.

During the hearing, the directors of Magalies Distillers Uganda Limited failed to appear, despite being formally notified. This absence raises questions about the company’s transparency and willingness to engage in the process.
