Buganda kingdom has cautioned government about the dangers in amending the land act as tabled to parliament recently seeking to allow compulsory take over of the land where government wants to carry out projects.
This has been revealed by the Buganda premier Charles peter mayiga in the 24 Buganda lukiiko sitting at bulange Mengo saying that government will increase its enemies especially if the compensation is not done before the take over.
Mayiga also noted that government will loose a lot of money in case the judgment on a land case takes long.
It’s against this that mayiga has urged government to give more funds to the land commission of inquiry so as to fight and find a solution to land wrangles in the country.
It should be recalled that land commission of inquiry chaired by justice catherine bamugemereirwe took a technical break due to lack of funds.
In the same sitting the minister of finance in the Buganda government Owek. Wagwa Nsibirwa tabled a budget of 74 billion shillings for the financial year 2017/2018.
The biggest part of the budget will be spent on education,health,debts , finishing of kasubi tombs among others.
Various guests have attended today’s buganda lukiiko including the vice president of uganda edward kiwanuka ssekandi, members of parliament, Executive director Kcca jenifer musisi ,among others.
