Mengo has demanded the return of the kingdom’s property in Kayunga district. “Kayunga leaders should emulate other district leaders in Buganda who have returned Buganda’s property,” the first deputy Katikkiro, Ambassador Emmanuel Ssendawula, said on Sunday.

He was speaking during a thanksgiving service for George Kumama, the state minister for cooperatives in the Buganda government, at Nakyesa village in Kayonza sub-county.

Buganda’s property in Kayunga includes the building housing the district headquarters in Ntenjeru and the headquarters for Kayunga, Kangulumira, Bbaale and Kayonza sub-counties.

On the installation of the cultural leader for the Banyala, Nathan Mpagi, Ssendawula warned the district council against passing resolutions intended to divide Buganda Kingdom.

The acting LC5 chairman, Boniface Bandikubi, and the district speaker, Rosemary Nakalawa, backed Buganda’s position on the Land (Amendment) Bill.

They said the Bill would not solve land problems since it had been rejected by cultural leaders and the clergy.

Bandikubi advised the Government to consider the views of those opposing the Bill and come up with a final draft in favour of all parties.

The Land Bill was tabled in Parliament recently amid criticism from Buganda activists and opposition legislators who wanted it stayed.

Mengo views the Bill as an attempt to undermine Buganda Kingdom, while the Central Government insists that it is aimed at curbing rampant illegal land evictions.
