Minister Nantaba Suspends Lands Committee

The State Minister for Lands, Ms Idah Nantaba, has put to a stand still the operations of the land committee constituted by President Museveni to check illegal land evictions in the country.

Ms Nantaba revealed that the Lands office in Mukono had been put to task to explain the increasing cases of fraudulent land titles. she also went ahead to reveal that she has written to all land officers in the country to appear before the committee proceedings to answer why fraudulent land titles are being issued to land grabbers.

Ms Nantaba yesterday said the suspension in Kayunga District stems from failure by the police and land officers to cooperate with the committee in the execution of its work.

Ms Nantaba said she had written to the registrar of land titles at the ministry, Ms Sarah Kulata, to effect the cancellation of   30 land titles from Kayunga with  immediate effect.
