Corruption: Nakalema raids Wakiso land office

Work at Wakiso district headquarters was grounded to a halt following a raid by the newly constituted State House Anti-corruption Unit.

A team of army officers and police officers under the unit stormed the district headquarters around 11:30am today and sealed it off, taking special interest in the lands office.

Some of the officers deployed strategically around the offices to block members of the public from accessing it. They zeroed in on Block D, which hosts the zonal land offices and rounded up surveyors, land officials and brokers. Wakiso district handles nearly 80% of all land transactions in the country. 

The team also confiscated all electronic gadgets from the land officers and their clients who had come to process their land titles. Unconfirmed reports indicate that the operation was prompted by complaints of corruption from members of the public against the land officials.

Our reporter saw a team of scene of crime officers perusing through documents and interrogating the officers. Don Wanyama, the press secretary to president said that the unit was on a covert operation. 

The raid was led by State House Anti-corruption Unit head, Lt Col Edith Nakalema with the help of the elite presidential guards, regular army and police officers. This is the second such raid at Wakiso district in less than two years following a similar one by the Land Probe Commission in June 2017.

Before Museveni came on stage, who was looting, owning tax money, which Ugandan was stealing land from another, were Ugandans in the army/police used to terrorise thier own people because they were corrupt,stealing land/money?

Who is stealing land from who, who is distributing tax money as his pocket money?

Yet, as our people let Museveni just go on, every one of them can be arrested for corruption, stealing land, making fun of the demon on line & locked up in prison!

Who is going to arrest Museveni, the chief of corruption, the one who believes Uganda is his land by right of birth, it's tax money belongs to him?

Why do Ugandans have no say in a country they were kind to give Museveni shelter in, yet it's them now the migrants without say used against one another like programmed robots?...

...So, when will Museveni announce:

'Uganda is now my land officially, legally, constitutionally"?

As tribal leaders won't stand down to give chance to UNITY that will force Museveni out, why don't Ugandans form Independent Tribal States & NOW, instead of making themselves enemies of one another to please the demon they have no reason to keep in power?

Why do Ugandans prefer Museveni making them enemies of one another, using them to terrorise one another, instead of being FREE without him in a country formed by tribal lands in which the demon has no land?

By the time Museveni drops dead of old age in +30 years, how many Ugandans will still be friends, tolerate one another...as it's them used by the demon as weapons against themselves?

One is of the opinion that Wakiso is the centre of the Luweero triangle where the citizens suffered greatly from the liberation of NRM to capture power.

Why after so many years of NRM government vicious raids are being made to sort out corruption in popular NRM constituencies?

If this how Nakalema plans to fight corruption, then Uganda is doomed. The way it was done demonises all civil servant a few good ones left included.

Nakalema kind of accused everyone of corruption which can’t be the case. Proper investigations must have been made before invading a public office and taking away people’s land titles!

It could be seen as another ploy to steal people’s properties, Nakalema and group are a land hungry group after all!

Like others before, Afande Nakalema has been set up to hurt herself very badly.

In other words, in the name of fighting corruption; she will be used against her own people, later denounces, abused and dumped.

Otherwise, why didn't Mr. M7 appoint Asiimwe or Kiconco to face off the corrupt and land grabbers?

Why didn't Mr. M7 appoint the Kobusingye or Byauhanga of this country, but UPC, Hon Betty Amongi of this country?

In other words, Mr. M7 has found plenty of useful idiots who later become useless idiots (totally alienated from the people).

Quoting Lakwena:

This one is a genetically modified “Nakalema”!

Comedy show to hoodwink Ugandans. -- if the issue was not deadly serious.

The corrupt regime is the one stealing land from the peasants.

The "raid" at the land office is only meaningful in these terms: grabbing all available land titles so the crooked regime can continue its dirty work.

The clock is ticking, nonetheless...for the end of the corrupt regime (and the ruling Despot-for-32-Years and his gang of crooks know it.)
