The Government has returned some of Buganda property including 213 land titles.


President Yoweri Museveni handed over the documents detailing the property to Deputy Katikkiro Emmanuel Sendaula at State House Entebbe on Tuesday.

Present was the minister for information and national guidance, Rose Namayanja, Attorney General, Peter Nyombi,  Prince David Wasajja, the Buganda Kingdom Attorney General, Apollo Makubya and MPs from Buganda among others.

In his remarks the President hailed the Mengo establishment for cordial relations with the Government.

“I have been hearing positive statements. That is good. I have no problem returning land without conditions in the urban centres,” he said.

The President said Kabaka Ronald Mutebi II was able visit Kayunga without any problem early this year because the factors that earlier affected his intended visit had been sorted. “We do not want a social crisis,” the President said.

Museveni implored cultural institutions and churches to encourage Ugandans to work if they are to be independent.
He invited Buganda kingdom leadership to Rwakitura for a business study tour.
