SIR— I would like to convey my gratitude to the Minister of State for Lands, Mr Baguma Isoke, for his stand on the compensation of Mr Godfrey Nyakana, the Kampala City councillor whose house in a Bugolobi wetland was demolished by NEMA last weekend.

I am happy that the minister has stated point-blank that KCC and state agents like the Registrar of Titles should be made to compensate Nyakana.

NEMA should have initially attempted to direct KCC to pay the victim, Nyakana because he had spend an exorbitant amount of money on the structure. How could NEMA ignore KCC, the sellers, and began torturing the buyer! If NEMA executives were judges, it would have been most advisable to get rid of them! They just simply do not have the required managerial and decision-making skills at all. Things must be dealt with in order, rather than omitting some of the basic procedures.

If KCC is eventually forced to pay Nyakana, as the minister put it, it will give a good example to other government bodies that laws are there to protect everyone in the country. In fact, NEMA should also have been forced to share in the compensation package.

Then those officials involved in both KCC and NEMA should all be flushed out of our system before they can cause more damage.
