Old Kira Road Property: Police Legal Director tells KMP Commander to protect the Legal owner/ registered proprietor

By Davis Mugabi

On Monday, the State House Anti-Corruption Unit paraded before the Kampala Capital City Authority-City Hall Court six people on charges of aggravated robbery following the demolition of a private residence along Old Kira Road in Ntinda The accused are Julius Lukwago, Hussein Kato, Peter Okello, Umar Kateregga (Driver), Hussein Ochen, and Godfrey Bahati 

Three are builders, two are masons, and one is a driver–all resident of Kira Municipality in Wakiso District.

They were remanded to Luzira Prisons. 

However, a source privy to these details says that the latest actions are in the interest of the former owner of the property. The property in question is comprised in Volume 1837, Folio 11, Plot 106 at Old Kira Road. They’re are trying to use State house Anti Corruption unit to frustrate the rightful owner of the property.

Previously, the property was owned by Lucy Mary Orech. However, ownership has since changed hands to Kabogozza Mutwalib, who sold to third parties. In fact, in 2020, Kabogozza defeated Orech in court and was ordered to pay Shs 100 million in damages to Kabogozza. 

Kabogozza has since sold the property to third parties from whom businessman Yusuf Ssemakula bought from. This was confirmed by the high court and court of appeals. Lucky Mary orech has moved to many offices, but all has been telling her to back off the property. She has no legal basis whatsoever.
According to city lawyer Muhangi George, who has been following this matter has since narrated to this media house that state house should stop for being used by mafias because it tarnishes the image of the institution.

Aware of these facts, Police’s Director Legal, AIGP Erasmus Twaruhuka, wrote to the Commander, Kampala Metropolitan Area, and instructed him to restrain Mary Lucy Orech and all those climing under her from trespassing on the subject of property and instead advise them, if aggrieved, to seek remedy from courts of law. 

“Ensure that the area DPC and O/C Station implement the same without delay and professionally to avoid unnecessary complaints,” Twaruhuka wrote and added that: “The deployment on ground, if any, should be to protect the interests of the Registered Proprietor to enable him to enjoy quite possession.”
