THE Kabaka of Buganda, Ronald Muwenda Mutebi is seeking to repossess Kaazi camping site in Entebbe from the Boy Scouts Association of Uganda (BSAU), for allegedly failing to pay the lease fees.
In a suit filed on December 7, in the High Court in Kampala, Mutebi through Sebalu and Lule advocates sued the registered trustees of BSAU, seeking to re-enter and possess the 210 acre piece comprised in block 273, Plot 5 Kaazi.
The suit filed before Justice Moses Zehurikize, seeks general damages for breach of lease agreement and costs.
The BSAU has 15 days from December 10, to file a defence against the suit. BSAU, are registered owners of the Kaazi grounds by virtue of a 59-year lease on the property by the Uganda Land Commission (ULC) issued on July 27 1988.
The land was returned to the Kingdom in 1993 by virtue of the traditional rulers (restitution of assets and properties) Statute making Mutebi the lessor of the property.
According to a lease agreement attached to the suit, BSAU are supposed to pay Mutebi sh500 per year and in two instalments one in January and another in June.
In the plaint, Mutebi alleges that BSAU have breached the express and implied terms of the lease agreement in as far as they failed, neglected or refused to pay the reserved rent since 1993 despite repeated demands.
Mutebi asked court to order BSAU to vacate the land so that he can effectively repossess it.
