THE Kamuswagaâ€™s Lukiiko (council) has vowed to sue the Rakai Town Council over leasing the traditional leaderâ€™s land without his consent.
The Kamuswaga, Apollo Sansa Kabumbuli II, also stopped the construction of a telecommunications mast on part of the land in dispute, saying the town council neither consulted him nor his land committee.
â€œIt seems we have been too lenient with the town council. It is high time we switched to a tougher language for them to listen to our demands,â€ Katikkiro Ananiyas Sekyanzi told the Lukiiko last week.
Sekyanzi wondered why the district officials lied that they had returned all the Kamuswagaâ€™s property yet they had refused to pay for the buildings they were still occupying since the district council announced their return over a year ago.
â€œThese people were just deceiving us,â€ he told the Lukiiko. â€œWe are not against development, but we are seeking recognition as an institution because the property is ours,â€ Kabumbuli II said.
He added that Kooki had secured the land titles for the property which the council had encroached on.
The Lukiiko also to sue the district administrators for not paying the rental fees for the Kamuswagaâ€™s buildings but the LC5 chairman, Vincent Semakula and the chief administrative officer, Edward Galabuzi, settled the matter.
â€œWe registered financial shortages last year but we solved some of them when the Government gave us the Graduated Tax compensation fund this year,â€ Galabuzi said.
