However, according to a 9 July 2013 ruling given by Justice Solome Bbosa of the High Court of Appeal, KDLB is empowered by the constitution and that its work is not answerable to KCCA in its dealings with the former public land except in matters to do with planning and the divisions with respect to revenue.

According to Nsibambi, this ruling means that all titles issued by the Uganda Land Commission and KCCA are fake and all those issued during the period it was closed should be taken to his office for verification.

On assuming office in April 2011, Ms Jennifer Musisi wanted to take over the land managed by KDLB, arguing that since Kampala was no longer a district, it could not have a district land board.

It should be remembered that on the advice of the Solicitor general, Harriet Lwabi, the KCCA Executive Director with the help of the police sealed off the KDLB offices, last year in May pending investigations into alleged fraud and abuse of office on Sunday.

Lwabi had argued that after the formation of the KCCA, Kampala is not a district under local government but a city under the authority under central government; therefore it cannot have a District land board.

The ruling is a big triumph for Nsibambi who has for months struggled to retain his office amidst hostility from Musisi.
