The Government has dismissed allegations that the land on which the ministry of internal affairs sits is being sold to investors to pave way for the establishment of a factory.


Kasiro County MP Elijah Okupa on Wednesday tasked the Prime Minister Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda to explain to Parliament circumstances surrounding the planned sale of the land.

“There is information that government is selling off the land on which the ministry of internal affairs sits. Can you tell the country why this land is being given away to investors,” asked Okupa.

However in response, Rugunda assured Parliament that the land was safe adding that the alleged sale of the land was mere allegations.

“I don’t have any information about this. It’s a mere rumor,” Rugunda clarified.

Last week Okupa told the Parliament’s committee on defense and internal affairs that the ministry’s land was being sold to investors which forced the committee to launch investigations into the matter.

The ministry of internal affairs is located on Plot 75 Jinja road. The ministry is mandated to keep peace, law and order and also regulate, facilitate movement of people in and out of the country.
