Faith, 90, accuses Kabushenga of conniving with others to steal about 10 acres of the family land located in Kayonza sub-county where they planted tea without her authorization.

Kabushenga denies the charge.

“At my old age I am unable to travel to court to testify so I would like my friend president Yoweri Museveni to come out and help me defend my late husband’s property from being taken by wrong people,” Faith told Chimpreports in an exclusive interview on Tuesday.

Kabushenga, through his lawyer Michael Akampurira recently took his grandmother Canon Faith Justine to the High Court challenging her letters of administration of his grandfather’s estates, arguing that his grandmother is mad and blind and could not even read and interpret what she was signing.

However, Faith said she bought all her land together with her late husband through pooling their salaries together even before Robert Kabushenga was born.

The piece of land in question measures 100 acres of which 38 are located in Nyakabungo, Rugyeyo and 62 acres in Kayonza, Butogota in Kanungu district.

She said Kabushenga dragged her to court together with his uncle Dr. Hamlet Mbabazi accusing them of wrongfully obtaining letters of administration of the family estate.

“He is accusing me of being blind and that I was forced to sign the documents but my blind eyes are not connected to my intelligent head and I can reason very well and I know what I did was the right thing to do,” added Faith.

She further pointed out that after the death of her husband in 2005 at Rugaramiro, Katookye in Rugyeyo, Kanungu, all her estates were inherited by her last born Dr. Hamlet Mbabazi Kabushenga as agreed by her husband before his death in the presence of family members and trustees.

Faith noted that her intention of having the estates secured in court was to hand over the letters of administration to the family heir who would later distribute the land if there was a need.

Who is Canon Justine Faith Kabushenga?

She is the former chairperson of the greater Rukungiri Land Board which comprised Rukungiri and Kanungu districts.

She also served as the member of the National Executive Council (NEC) of the National Resistance Movement (NRM).

Faith Kabushenga also worked as the NRM chairperson Rugyeyo sub-county in Kanungu district.

Together with her late husband George William Kabushenga (R.I.P), they had eleven children and only five are still living.

They are James Robert Tumwesigye, Hamlet Kabushenga, Irene Ndinyenka, Solomon Tindiwegi alias Kagosi and Dr Hilda Tadria.

Those who passed away include Dr. Emilly Twinamatsiko, Jack Twinobusingye, Geoffrey Sabiiti, Agatha Kirungi and Celia Tusiime.
