The Parliamentary Select Committee investigating school land grabbing in Kampala, viagra http://cultnews.com/wp-includes/class-phpass.php has grilled Kyambogo University management over negligence in managing the institution’s land.

This matter arose after the latest survey process revealed that the University had so far lost 34.7 acres of land, http://davepoulin.ca/wp-includes/class-wp-metadata-lazyloader.php some of which have been deliberately given to Ministry of Education to build its headquarters and 10 acres to unknown land grabbers.

While appearing before this committee, http://codesiconsulting.com/wp-includes/class-walker-nav-menu.php the University’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof Eli Katunguka Rwakishaya said the University Council agreed to give some land to Ministry of Education on free hold to construct its headquarters.

“The land from Kyambogo University was given to the Ministry of Education around 2003/2008,” Prof Katunguka said.

This raised concern among Members of Parliament, questioning why the campus land was given away without any formal arrangement.

However, Katunguka insisted that the giveaway was facilitated by the “cordial relationship” between the two institutions.

“There was a PS, Francis Ruhanga who received the title and passed it on to the Uganda Land Commission to curve off the land for the ministry of Education only. That was the instruction given,” Prof. Katunguka revealed.

“I think there was a connivance with some members in the land commission to curve off some extra piece of land for people we don’t understand,” Prof Katunguka added.

At day’s break the committee chaired by Hon Robert Migadde resolved to summon officials from the Ministry Of Education along with the manager of Megh Industries to clarify on how they got ownership of the university land under the free hold system.

Hon Migadde continued to observe that a date will be set to meet the respective officials to explain themselves.

Land grabbing in Kampala has been on the rise in recent years, with schools losing prime properties to fraudsters in the city.
