Gheto musician Bobi Wine is in tears following the reports that his prime land which the Ghetto Republic sits has been sold off to an investor believed to be the brother of Gabonese President.
A sale agreement seen by this website indicate that M/s Pearl Hope Investments, owner of the disputed land, measuring about 26 acres and located on Block 213 Plots 20-78, while other plots are marked as 1979, 20186, and 1977, have been sold to Mr Ulrich Anass Bongo Ngoyi.
“In consideration of $15m (Fifteen million United States Dollars) the vendor agrees to sell and the purchaser agrees to purchase the Leasehold interest which will be converted out of a Mailo interest (measuring about 26 acres of land for a period of 99 years’ renewable on agreed Terms and conditions for another period of 99 years after the expiration of the initial lease,” the agreement of sale of land reads in part.
Bongo who is one the powerful men in Gabon is represented by M/S EUSTERA INTERNATIONAL FZE, based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Bobi Wine whose real names is Robert Kyagulanyi is an ardent opposition member and recently declared his desire to challenge president Museveni in the next election.
His trouble began in March after receiving a letter from M/s Pearl Hope Investments Limited, through Lubega, informing them of of the planned eviction on the contested land. Bobi Wine’s famed Ssemakokiro Plaza sits on the same land.
At least 400 families in the ghetto zones of Mulimira, Kisenyi and Old Kira Road are under threat of eviction.
The singer-cum-politician is accused of buying the land from a one Gladys Nanyonga without the consent of the landlord.
