Parliament has set up a 9-man Committee to probe issues surrounding Nakawa-Naguru land.
According to Deputy Speaker Anita Among, she has noted with concern the fights related to the Naguru – Nakawa land.
This, she said, highlights failure at the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development and the Uganda Lands Commission.
Among says that the land has been parcelled and is being cleared without these conflicts being resolved.
“It is a shame,” she said. “It is time that we embarked on our oversight mandate to root out these vices from the operation of Government departments and agencies.”
To this, she invoked rule 191 and nominated an Adhoc committee for approval by the House.
The membership will be as follows-
1. Hon Dan Kimosho – NRM
2. Hon Dr Apea – NRM
3. Hon. Akol Athony – FDC
4. Hon. Aisha Kabanda – NUP
5. Hon. Basalirwa Asuman – JEEMA
6. Hon. Ebwalu Jonathan -Independent
7. Hon. Kateshumbwa Dickson- NRM
8. Hon. Opendi Sarah – NRM
9. Hon. Atukwasa Ritah – NRM
The Committee is expected to investigate the matters and report to the House within two weeks.
