Former international security Organization chief Brig. Henry Tumukunde has dismissed allegations by lands state minister Idah Nantaba that he uses the army to threaten Kayunga residents.
Through his lawyer, Alexander Matsiko, Tumukunde on Monday said he doesn’t own any land at Mugongo village in kayunga district. He said Nantaba had accused him of using the army to evict and intimidate the residents of Mugongo village, which he denied ever doing.
Tumukunde’s lawyer produced documentation showing that he sold his 3- square mile of land to Elizabeth Nakayiwa, a business woman in 2009 who later leased it to Danish investors; Eric Yestern, Hansen Jorn and Hans Otto, the proprietors of DANUGA, for 99 years.
“Nantaba writing to the chief of staff of the army that I am using the army to beat up and intimidate the residents of Kayunga so that i can be disciplined is wrong because i dont own anything there.” said Tumukunde.
Nantanba recently handed the land previously owned by Tmukunde to Kayunga locals which is currently owned by the danish investors.
