Justina Teberamusa the owner of the building that houses Nansana police station in Wakiso district has threatened to throw out her clients on grounds of unpaid rent for the last five years.
The police who have occupied the premises for over eight years are expected to pay about sh4.8m annually but have failed to do so prompting the anger of the landlady who wanted to lock up the premises on Tuesday.
She said that the additional amount of about sh16m was as a result of the September 2009 Buganda riots that saw a number of army officers camp at her premises.
“During the riots, several UPDF officers occupied my parking space which is my daily source of income and spent there several months, so when I calculated the losses they added up to sh16m.” said Teberamusa.
She added that she sought payment from the administration at Bombo Military Barracks but with little success.
“I have been very lenient with them but they have taken my kindness for granted, so if it means going to court am ready to do so,” said Teberamusa.
Teberamusa is also asking for payment for a police car that has been parked in her own compound for over a year saying it has been an inconvenience and a hideout for rodents that eventually enter her house.
