Jinja, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | The Deputy Inspector General of Government-IGG, Patricia Achan has directed Jinja city authorities to conduct fresh nominations of land board members, saying the previous exercise didn’t follow the right procedures.

This stems from complaints by whistleblowers to the Inspectorate of Government indicating that the candidates nominated on February 07th, 2022 were not fit for the task at hand. They included Alex Luganda, Barbra Nyamuguru, Zaituni Malole, Philip Bogere, Emmanuel Kamugisha and Innocent Anyole.

Now in her letter to Jinja city authorities, Achan stresses that there was no evidence of the qualifications of the nominees during the nomination as stipulated under section 57(2) of the Land Act, Cap 227 making the whole process null and void. Achan also noted that executive committees of the Jinja City Northern and Southern divisions were never given an opportunity to present their preferred representatives to the Jinja city land board.

She directed the city authorities to conduct fresh nominations with plans of increasing the number of women representatives and full consideration of the provisions within the Land Act, Cap 227 and the Local Government Act, Cap 243. The Jinja city mayor Peter Kasolo, says the responsible officers are expediting the matter but he declined to divulge details.

    I lost my father last year 2021 on the 5th day of June.but I have faced great resistance from L C V Mbazira Richard,Kirunda Abubaker Menya and Adong filda working as the Secretary to the finance.the deceased was known as Okoth Ochieng Richards a former teacher of English in jinja schools(Primary Teacher) his estate was given to my father’s girlfriend even after I had got letters of administration. I still went back to my lawyer, when she was called for a mediation, she still refused to turnip.she claims my father’s estate is hers forgeting those were houses allocated to teachers.whenever I seek for help in away of getting the allocation letter or agreement from the physical planner’s office,they say it could be the same file that madam Adong filda went with in away of fulfilling their ambitions.being the only child to the deceased, it has become an advantage to my opponents
