Burahya County MP Margaret Muhanga returned the UBC tittle through her lawyer Caleb Alaka.
Alaka is believed to have handed over the title on Friday at around 8:00pm to the Parliamentary Committee on Statutory Authorities and State Enterprises (COSASE) chairperson, Bugweri County MP Abdul Katuntu at Speke resort Munyonyo.
The committee has been investigating the alleged fraudulent purchase of UBC land in Bugolobi a Kampala suburb. It also gave Muhanga up to Friday to produce a land title but she insisted that she had no title, arguing that it was cancelled by the Supreme Court.
On October 29, 2015, the Supreme Court maintained rulings of the High Court and Court of Appeal ordering that the transfer of Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (UBC) land into the name of Burahya county MP, Margaret Muhanga, be cancelled.
All courts cited irregularities in the process through which the land had been sold to Muhanga in 2014 – three years after she had lost her seat in parliament as Kabarole woman MP.
Muhanga told a committee that she bought the land from court bailiffs at a cost of sh10b which she paid in cash.
She also claimed she raised the sh10b to buy the land through selling goats and cows, a statement which has raised a heated public debate.
