The commission of inquiry which was instituted by President Yoweri Museveni to investigate land issues has opened today.

City advocate Peter Muliira was the first witness.

The seven member commission launched last week by the lands minister Betty Amongi is chaired by Justice Catherine Bamugemereire.

Other members of the commission include: Makerere University law don, Dr. Rose Nakayi, former Attorney General,  Fred  Ruhindi, Robert Ssebunya - a presidential advisor on Buganda affairs, Joyce Habasa and George Bagonza.

Notable among the terms of reference to the commission is to compile report findings which government will base on to address the land question.

The Bamugemereire commission comes at a time of increased outcry over alleged fraud at the land registry which has seen all sorts of anomalies including issuance of multiple titles to a single piece of land.

In a February 2014 letter to the then minister of lands, Daudi Migereko, the Inspector General of Government, Justice Irene Mulyagonja mooted the idea of government instituting a commission of inquiry to handle issues of alleged fraud in the land sector.

To Mulyagonja, many recommendations by the inspectorate pertaining to fraudulent land transactions were being ignored by technocrats at the land ministry.
