THE Iganga-based businessman, who was sued by the Attorney General over the fraudulent purchase of a government-aided school, has said he is ready for the court battle.

Hajji Saidi Edhiruma on Wednesday said: “I wonder whether the Attorney General has forgotten the person he is supposed to sue. I have all the documents and ready to defend myself.”

Recently, Edhiruma was served with a notice requiring him to file a defence at the High Court within 14 days.

Edhiruma claims he bought Iganga Town Council Primary School in 2004 following an advert that appeared in the media.
Documents indicate that he bought the school from the Departed Asians Custodian Board on November 6 at sh45m.

He made a down-payment of sh15m and finance state minister Fred Omach issued him with a Certificate of Purchase.

However, Omach claims he was misled by the board to give Edhiruma a certificate for a school under the Universal Primary Education programme.

On December 6, 2006, the legal manager of the Departed Asians Custodian Board, Ruth Namirembe, wrote to Mwanja Magezi law chambers to organise the handover of the school.

The letter was copied to Iganga town council.
