The Parliamentary Committee on Physical Infrastructure has summoned Baltazar Kasirivu-Atwooki, the former Minister of State for Lands and Member of Parliament for Bugangaizi West County, due to allegations of fraudulent acquisition of freehold land titles affecting numerous legitimate occupants in Ndaiga sub-county, Kagadi district. This action comes in response to a petition from affected residents who seek a special investigation into ongoing land evictions in Kagadi.
The residents’ plea highlights a pressing land crisis in Kagadi, with many individuals at risk of eviction from their properties. The Parliamentary Committee on Physical Infrastructure has initiated this inquiry to ascertain Dr. Kasiru Atwooki’s involvement in these controversial land transactions.
The core issue revolves around the alleged fraudulent acquisition of freehold land titles, which has left thousands of genuine occupants in a vulnerable position. These residents have turned to Parliament for justice and a resolution to what they perceive as unjust evictions.
Baltazar Kasirivu-Atwooki, the former Lands Minister, is expected to provide information and answer questions related to his alleged role in these land transactions. The parliamentary committee will conduct a comprehensive investigation to determine the veracity of the claims and whether any unlawful activities occurred in land ownership and evictions in Kagadi district.
