The minister in his statement informed Parliament late last week that the land title for the Geological Survey and Mining Department was issued to a private developer in error and yet one already existed for this government facility.

“This allocation was done by Wakiso Land Board which had no jurisdiction over this land and the title has been recalled,” he added.

Hon. Oulanyah said that there is need for the government to carry out an inventory of what it owns to avoid similar cases in the future where government property and land is allocated to private developers.

“There is need to carry out this exercise to ascertain what government owns. You should report back to Parliament in one month,” he said.

Hon. Migereko said that the Ministry had started on the exercise but it stalled because of lack of funds.

“The Ministry had embarked on this exercise but it needs funding because it involves indentifying and surveying. We shall embark on it as soon as funds are availed to the Ministry,” he added.

He also revealed that the issues to do with the land belonging to the Civil Aviation Authority, the Fisheries Training Institute and the Survey Training School were under investigations.

He reiterated that the land irregularities and malpractices will end once the Computerisation Land Information System is fully operational.
