Kayunga District National Resistance Movement-NRM party Chairperson, Moses Kalangwa is on the spot over accusations of maliciously acquiring a plot of land at Spire road primary school.  

The plot, which measures 100 by 50ft, was allocated to the Rotary Club of Jinja with the aim of expanding the department of visually impaired pupil at the school.

However, Kalangwa is claiming ownership of the same land. The School Head teacher, Florence Namukose told URN that she isn’t aware how Kalangwa acquired the contested land.

   

“I am aware of Rotary Club’s plans to expand our school for the blind but I have been treated with shock after Kalangwa came out to claim ownership of the same land,” she said.

 

Margret Nampiina, the former Jinja Rotary Club president, says they partnered with Jinja Municipal Council-JMC to construct another classroom block for the visually impaired pupils.  

“It is absurd that although JMC cleared us to construct a bigger facility, which would accommodate more visually impaired pupils from different parts of the country. Kalangwa has continued harassing us,” she said.

    

In his defense, Kalangwa told journalists that Jinja Municipal Council leased him the contested land and he can’t allow other people to develop it under his watch.

 

The Jinja City Mayor, Majid Batambuze, says the school land was titled in 2018. He says they are reviewing the matter to ascertain Kalangwa’s claims.
