Police on Thursday blocked Paddy Sserunjogi aka Sobi from evicting a 94-year-old man in Nakisunga sub-county, Mukono district.

Sobi, a self-confessed murderer and gang leader of Kifeesi who terrorised Kampala city dwellers before he got incorporated into the Uganda police force, today with about 30 other people, reportedly raided Musa Mwanje’s land - measuring 5 acres on the orders of Fulgensio Ssembajwe, the administrator of the estate of the late John Lule Ssebakijja, a neighbour to Mwanje.

Sobi says that before the death of Ssebakijja, he had bought 20 acres of land from Mwanje, and unfortunately after he died, the transfer process was not completed. Sobi reveals being promised 10 acres out of the 20 once he clears and fences off the contested land from that of Mwanje. After the death of Ssebakijja, Ssembajwe went to court and secured an order in September 2015 allowing him to clear and use the land.

According to Mwanje, the 2015 order was presented to him by Sobi who introduced himself as a 'Special Forces Command' (SFC) operative hired to clear the contested part of the land. Mwanje adds that at first, he treated it as a joke since he had all the land titles registered in his name until Sobi started cutting down trees and clearing his sweet potato gardens.

Mwanje alerted his sons to secure a court injunction to stop all the illegal activities on his land. According to records, Mwanje secured the land titles in 1960 located on Block 221 Plot 118 Kyaggwe.

Mwanje also accuses Sobi and his gang of vandalizing his house. He notes that the house used to belong to his late son, Meddie Muyanja, a former personal bodyguard to President Yoweri Museveni.

Police headed by the Mukono Division officer in charge, Michael Kato, and the LC I chairperson Joseph Ssenkungu convened a village meeting where they read out the court injunction prohibiting further development on him of the land.

NRM never learns. You intergrate a former thug/convict/murderer and give him powers what do you expect.

Ssobi, a self confessed serial murderer and robbery gang leader who terrorised Kampala before being incorporated in the police .... but now a murderer working for president Museveni's Special Forces Command!

What more can one say? It is possible that even as serial killer and violent robber this Sobi was clandestinely working for Mr. Museveni to instill terror in Kampala. One day Sobi's victims will get the justice denied to them by Mr. Museveni who it appears was a beneficiary of Sobi's criminal enterprise.

There is a crisis brewing in land acquisition and disposal in many parts of the Country, particularly Buganda.

This crisis has been brought to bear on the Nouveau (new) Rich mainly from Western Uganda. Motivated by the human vice of greed, they have purchased and put investments on land which was illegally processed in one way or another.

Now, the rightful Owners have woken up and invoked the Law, and since there is no escaping the consequences of Law, they have opted to use extra-judicial methods including political influence and security forces to achieve their illegal ends.

1- Appolo , NRA/NRM was /is a militia ,mainly of fortune hunters , Ugandans and non-Ugandans , with luck and shrewdness, they captured power. Not to govern or change people's lives but to enrich /kwefuwako nfufu

2- They grabbed govt property until it got finished, now they have to grab whatever they can lay their hands on.
3- They are going to evict the all the Baganda from their land like it or not.

4- The grabbing is now for their children while the children of the indigenous people are forced in 'kyeyo '' That's Uganda for you.

When Buganda invited landless Rwandans (some 40+ years ago) to fight Obote, where did they expect these to EVENTUALLY retire? Paul shall not welcome them all back into Rwanda, shall he?

Who is still in denial that: this is a government of criminals by criminals and for criminals?

Otherwise, how can a self-confessed serial killer, armed robber and gang leader, who terrorized Kampala, before being incorporated in the police, have field days, grabbing land from honest senior citizens?

In other words, the self-confessed Sobi of this country can take the law into their hands, and in broad-day-light; do whatever they want, including being serial killers and armed robbers.

But should some Ugandans, in retribution (life for life, and an eye for an eye) decide to lynch Sobi; they will be accused, brutally arrested, immediately prosecuted and jailed, for taking the law into their hands.

Wachireba?
