Two weeks ago, the area RDC invited the two conflicting parties to a meeting where city engineer Barigye walked out protesting with  an expired land tittle.
During the meeting Eng.Barigye presented an expired land tittle on a 7yrs lease that was issued on January, 1, 2001 while Edward Jemba presented a purchase agreement of  the disputed Kibanja signed on
April, 13, 1982 by one Sempogo Mutagubya, who sold  the disputed land to
Jemba’s late Father Edward Kanwagi.
According to RDC Kirabira, Edward Jemba genuinely owns the disputed land by law because he is documented and advised Eng. Barigye to validate his land title and recognize the Kibanja owner (Jemba) since
his title expired 10years ago.
According to Entebbe Municipal Council Physical planner, Grace Nanyonga, says basing on the documents from  the  council registry, the disputed land originally belonged to Sempogo Mutagubya, who sold it in
1982 to late Edward Kanwagi, the father of  Edward Jemba. She adds  that Edward Kanwagi, the original land  owner  died  in 1990 and  left  behind his son Edward Jemba who holds the  letters of Administration for  the
estates  of  his late father.
According to Entebbe police land protection unit, it’s  established that the late Edward Kanwagi owned the disputed Kibanja on plot 81 along Virus Research road and  bought  it from  one Sempogo Mutagubya and
a sales agreement  was penned on 13, April, 1982 and witnessed by Yossamu Salongo with a  recorded   statement  at Entebbe  police.
The  Entebbe Police CIID Officer ,Onesmus Mwesigwa, recently forwarded  the land matter  to the   Entebbe Resident  State Attorney, Julius Tuhairwe, who in turn advised  the conflicting parties  to seek
civil  redress.
