Sub County to Sue Ntungamo District over Compensation Money

The sub-county and district are embroiled in a conflict after the district refused to remit 67 million shillings to the sub-county.
Ntungamo Sub County plans to sue Ntungamo district over compensation funds from a piece of land.

The sub-county and district are embroiled in a conflict after the district refused to remit 67 million shillings to the sub-county. The money worth 104 million shillings was secured from Uganda National Roads Authority-UNRA as compensation for the piece of land in the sub-county.

The affected land hosts a market and former headquarters of Ruhaama County.

Through their lawyers of Mwene –Buhazi and Company Advocates, the sub-county leadership is demanding 67 million shillings.

The sub-county leadership is also challenging the manner in which the money was deposited on the district account yet the sub-county had submitted all the required details.

In a letter dated September 4th, 2018 addressed to Ntungamo district, the sub-county lawyers have now given the district a notice of intention to sue should the district fail to take action in the next 30 days.

Johnson Mwesigye, the Ntungamo sub-county chairperson says that the decision to opt for legal redress follows the failure by the district leadership to pay the money in question despite having promised to do so on several occasions.

Kweyamba Ruhemba, the Ntungamo Chief administrative officer, says that there is no need for alarm since the matter will be handled.
