THE coordinator of intelligence services, Gen. David Tinyefuza, has been given two weeks to vacate a posh house belonging to the Kampala Capital City Authority or be evicted.
Kampala city executive director Jennifer Musisi wrote to Tinyefuza over the issue on July 19.
According to the letter, Tinyefuza has up to August to leave the two-storey house on Plot 2, Mabua Road in Kololo, an upscale Kampala suburb.
The house was given to Tinyefuza in 2008 and serves as his office premises and a command centre.
Musisi also gave Tinyefuza up to tomorrow to explain how he or the Uganda Peopleâ€™s Defense Forces occupied the house. She also asked him to provide a formal instrument mandating his occupation of the property.
â€œThe Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) is currently in the process of reviewing the status of all its assets. Section19 (1) of the Kampala Capital City Act 2010 provides that the executive director shall be the custodian of all assets and records of the Authority,â€ the letter reads.
â€œIn the alternative and without prejudice to the above, we do request you to arrange to formally handover the property to the Authority by the August 22, 2011. Any failure to comply with this request as stated herein above shall compel the KCCA to re-enter the property and exercise it indefeasible claim to the property,â€ the letter says.
The letter is copied to President Yoweri Museveni, the minister of defence and the chief of defence forces among others.
KCCA also wrote to a private law firm, Shinobi, Musoke & Co. Advocates, to manage the property.
When contacted yesterday, Musisi declined to comment on the notice.
If the eviction is successful, the Mabua House will be the second to be repossessed by KCCA in less than two months.
Three weeks ago, officials of the Authority stormed the house on Plot 1 Sezibwa Road in Kololo and forcefully evicted former Kampala Mayor, Nasser Sebaggala, which he claimed to have purchased with approval of the previous council.
KCCA is investigating circumstances under which many of its assets were sold by the previous leaders. A recent audit instituted by the Authority reveals that several of its properties, including land and structures, were disposed of without following proper procedures, and that a lot of money was lost in questionable transactions.
