“They thought the graders wanted to demolish the mosque and caused havoc which prompted police to calm down the situation. But we used some little force,” explained Saiga, adding, that they were following a court order issued by High Court.

“In the event that the defendants fail to give vacant possession of the suit, land and all developments in the agreed days, an eviction and demolition order shall be issued against all the defendants,” read part of the court order seen by Chimpreports.

According to an eyewitness, three relatives including; Anila Ahamadi Taabali, Halima Ahmed and Muhammad Dina changed ownership of the land title and later sold it to a Kampala businessman leaving out other relatives who went to court to stop their eviction.

However, according to the court order, after a formal consent entered into and signed on February 28, the aggrieved parties agreed that the property be taken over by the businessman.

“The aggrieved parties should seek help from High Court rather than fighting and causing chaos,” urged the DPC.

Meanwhile, some section of Muslims at the mosque blamed the grandsons of the late Dinia and the leaders in the mosque for all the confusion which they said was motivated by greed.

“The children sold the land to the businessman but we persuaded him to allow us buy it back and he agreed. We started collecting money amongst ourselves but to our surprise your leaders connived with some of the grand children and chewed the money which prompted the businessman to repossess the property,” explained Haruna Lukyamuzi.
