A Local Council one chairman Canaan Luboyera has accused businessman Ben Kavuya of attempting to bribe him with five million Shillings to endorse a fraudulent land transaction in Kulambiro, a suburb of Kampala.      

Luboyera, the chairman of Kondogolo zone in Kulambiro, Nakawa division says that Kavuya, the proprietor of Legacy Credit Limited, had asked him to endorse documents indicating that he had bought two acres of land on Block 216 plot 221 in the village.      

According to the land titles before the Commission of Inquiry into Land Matters, the land in question was first registered under the names of Fenecantine Kityo, before changing ownership to David Spellow Semambo who also transferred it to Fredrick Senyonga in 2003. In 2004, the same land was transferred the land to Hajj Zed Kezimbira who was a tailor in Kiyembe, and later in the same year, it was transferred to Ben Kavuya.      

But this chain of ownership is contested by the family of one Fenecantine Benjamin Kityo, whose customary heir Nelson Dumba labels fraudulent. The family contends that Kityo, the initial owner of the land died in 1990, yet sembambo’s documents indicate that he bought the land in 2003, more than 10 years after his demise.      

Their testimony is backed by the chairman’s statement that Kityo never sold the land up to the time of his death.  Luboyera says that he never heard about the transaction until he was approached with an enticement of five million shillings to endorse the sale with the chairman's signature and stamp.

He says that after declining to endorse the sale, Kavuya, through a resident only identified as Namatovu, asked the chairman to mobilise the Kityo family for a meeting to resolve the matter. He, however, adds that on the day of the meeting, Kavuya showed up with three armed men forcing the family to flee.
