The Commission of Land Inquiry led by Justice Catherine Bamugemureire has summoned State Minister for Lands Persis Namuganza to appear before the Commission to explains under which circumstances she led residents to state house to deceives them that vacate their land that the president would compensate them.

The land in question is located at Kituule Village, Kitorogo Sub-county in Mubende District. It is alleged that an impostor  identified as Milly Naava Namutebi connived with Namuganza to evict at least 350 families from the land which measured up to three square miles.

According to documents tabled before the commission, Namutebi along side a senior UPDF officer Maj Eric Kigambwoha in conjunction with other security forces forcefully evicted and displaced the families who were living in three villages from their pieces of land using forced documents.

The commission ordered for immediate arrest of Naava Namutebi over the matter.

This will be second Minister from the same ministry to be summoned before the commission after Namuganza boss Minister for Lands Betty Amongi was also summoned and grilled for forceful eviction of Indian family from land and involving her self in dubious land deal.

The commission was appointed by the president to look into land crisis that has been hit by land grabbing and fraudulent land acquisitions across the country.
