Hajji Latif Ssebagala Sengendo has barked at the ministry of Lands, accusing it of doctoring up documents to grab part of the Land that belongs to Nabisunsa Muslim Girl’s School.
In a statement he released on his social media handles a few days ago, the Muslim stronghold referred to the ministry’s move as an insult to the Muslim community and the education sector.
“For a school that has been in existence for over 63 years that is a big insult to the Muslim community and to all educationists plus OGs of this great institution.” Hajji Ssebagala Said.
In the letter issued by the Uganda Land Commission on 22nd July 2021, to the chairman board of Governors Nabisuna Muslim Girls School the Land board alleges that part of the land on which the school is seated not part of the it and is therefore using it illegally.
Hajji Latif explained part of the letter and called it a collaborated act of theft.
“according to various letters of UCL and ministry of lands looks like a syndicate to grab this land and sell it to the so called investors. the Uganda land commission is collaborating with some officials from the ministry of lands to give away 7 hectares of Nabisunsa Muslim Girls school land to the so called investor(S),” he said.
“It is alleged that Haris International accompany owned by Indians making beverages like Riham Soda are behind grabbing this Muslim institution land which is unacceptable,” He added.
He appealed to the minister of education and sports who doubles as the first lady of Uganda to come out and protect Nabisunsa Girls School from land grabbers from the ministry of lands and ULC for a steady progress and continuity of the girl child education in Uganda.
“let us not test the patience of friends and well wisher of Nabisunsa and the Muslim community at large, the so called investors can be given land elsewhere but not forcefully encroaching on the few properties the muslim community has in this country because we will be there to defend this school’s land at all costs .” he said.
