Former Land Commission Boss Mayanja Nkangi under Investigation for Faking Land Title

The former Chairman of Uganda Land Commission (ULC) Joash Mayanja Nkangi and John Sebalamu a tycoon sand miner in Lwera wetland are under investigation over allegations of forging a land title belonging to Capital Estates Limited.

This was unearthed during an interface between the members of Parliamentary Committee on Natural Resource and officials from the Ministry of Lands, cure Housing and Urban Development over the illegal sand mining in Lwera Mpigi District.

During the meeting, MPs on the committee queried circumstances under which the Ministry of Lands transferred a land title to two different persons on the same day within a difference of only 15 minutes.

Ruhinda north MP Thomas Tayebwa said the 1500 hectares lease was issued by the district in June 2012 and processed into a title in December by Mayanja Nkangi who within 15 minutes after transferred it again to Sebalamu

“The question is how Nkangi managed to process a title off another title because that of Sebalamu is around 2250 hectares,and then be able to do another process in just 15 minutes. In 15 minutes you managed to transfer, did the processing in URA, paid taxes, verified throw the files to issue Sebalamu a title,” Tayebwa noted.

The Ministry commissioner, Robert Nyombi was then tasked to do a close scrutiny of the title presented to the committee on Tuesday by Sebalamu who found out that there were a lot of discrepancies.

“On the face this title for Mawokota Block 4 in Mabira Lwera bears suspicious entries when verified to be true, it shall be rendered null and void,” noted Nyombi.

The Committee thus instructed the Ministry to verify all land titles within Lwera wetland and report back on Friday next week.


Nkangi appeared before the committee on Tuesday while representing Pastor Samuel Kakande’s company over illegal Sand mining.
