Persis-Namuganza-before-MPs-0c36d063

Parliament has adopted a committee recommendation seeking to hold the Minister of State for Housing, Persis Namuganza accountable for abuse of office.

Namuganza is also accused of misleading Uganda Land Commission –ULC into allocation of the Nakawa-Naguru land to individuals and entities following Presidential Directives which were non-existent.

The damning condemnation is carried out under the report by Parliament’s Adhoc Committee that has been investigating the distribution of 82.05 acres of Nakawa-Naguru land.

The report was presented to parliament on Wednesday by Kazo County MP, Dan Kimosho.

Kimosho’s report also recommends that parliament urges President Yoweri Museveni to temporarily relieve Minister Namuganza of her duties to pave the way for investigation by the relevant organs of government.

In January 2022, the ULC revised earlier allocations of land at Nakawa-Naguru and distributed 15 acres to different individuals and companies in disguise of investors.

In response to the committee report, Minister Namuganza said that the MPs needed to take into consideration his letter to ULC saying that it had not been clearly captured by the Adhoc Committee.

Rukia Nakadama, the Third Deputy Prime Minister said that the government was going to consider the report by parliament and that a treasury memorandum would be presented to the House on actions taken in two months.
