KCCA law enforcement officers used heavy equipment to raze down a fuel station on plot 232 Block 254 in Kansanga wetland and another structure at Ntinda/Nakawa road junction just opposite Spear Motors.
These structures are owned by city businessman John Imaniraguha, according to KCCA officials.
KCCA boss Jennifer Musisi told Chimpreports last week that despite several attempts to have the developer to vacate the wetland; Imaniraguha had turned a deaf ear.
“Imaniraguha has continued amidst tight security, which has denied, KCCA from free access to the given sites as required in the Public Health Building rules,” said Musisi.
She further said wetland encroachment has escalated since 2009 in the areas of Bugolobi, Luzira, Kinawataka, Kyambogo, Kansanga, Lugala, Namungoona, Busega and Nateete thus leading to flooding in Kampala during heavy rains.
Musisi said KCCA has been able to identify some notable encroachers among others who have without necessary permits from KCCA continued with the act of degrading the wetlands.
Imaniraguha now joins President Yoweri Museveni’s brother commonly known as Toyota whose building was demolished last week by KCCA which accused him of erecting the structure in a road reserve.
Musisi has insisted she will demolish all structures at Centenary Park in a bid to preserve the city’s “green belt.”
