Senior presidential advisor general duties Al-Hajji Nasser Ntege Sebaggala has been sued, over a claim that he connived with the commissioner land registration to fraudulently transfer ownership of a piece of land into his name.

The suit was filed on August 24 at the High Court Land division in Kampala by a one George Ssalongo Muwanga.

Muwanga wants court to pronounce that the transfer ownership for the land located in Busiro, Wakiso district on Block 592 plot 98 at Ziba, was fraudulent. The land size is not stated in the court documents.

"The plaintiff is seeking a declaration that the registration of the first defendant (Sebaggala) as registered proprietor of the land comprised in Busiro Block 592 plot 98 at Ziba was done fraudulently," Muwanga asserts.
 
Through S.Kasasa and Company Advocates, Muwanga also wants court to cancel the land title and block the ex-Kampala Mayor's agents from interfering with the land.

Court documents show that the prior, the land was owned by Muwanga’s deceased father, a one Ntumwa Erisania Munya Batesaki, who acquired it in 1959 under instrument Kla 23837.

Additionally, the documents indicate that before he passed on, Batesaki had not sold off the land to anyone.

In the plaint, Muwanga states that he discovered the purported fraud in 2010, when Sebaggala attempted to evict squatters on the land.

He further asserts that when he scrutinised documents at the Mailo land registry in Kampala, he was shocked to learn that Sebaggala is the registered proprietor.

Subsequently, Muwanga complained to the commissioner in a letter dated February 23, 2011. He however states that he was not assisted, which compelled him to petition Police.

Muwanga asserts that Sebaggala was summoned to Police, and produced a duplicate certificate of the land and the sale agreement which was drawn by him as the purchaser and executed by himself.

He notes that the purported vendor was Batesaki, and the sale dated January 25 1989, yet his father had passed on before.

Court is yet to order the duo to file their defences. A hearing date is yet to be fixed.
