Kabale S.S, Hindu Community in Land Wrangle

A bitter row has erupted between Kabale Secondary School, information pills  one of the biggest universal secondary education (USE) in the Kigezi sub region and the Hindu Mandal Community Kabale in Kabale Municipality over land.

The land in question is located on plot 12-14 Ruchira road, drug now Nyerere Avenue in Kabale Municipality that is currently being occupied by the school’s main hall, case volley ball and net ball pitch and space for assembly, two blocks of water born toilet, kitchen, stores, rabbit and mouse pen demonstration plots for agriculture, incinerator and weather station.

The Shree Sanatan Dharm Mandal, the board of trustees of the Hindu Mendal Properties claims that Kabale secondary school occupied the land in August 1992 without a tenancy agreement.

Rajin Tailor, the chairman Board of Trustees for Shree Sanatan Dharm Mandal says that on 7th  May 2002, they officially wrote to Kabale Secondary School administration demanding for an explanation as to why they occupied the land yet they don’t own a land title but were not given feedback.

Tailor also says they wrote to the school on 15th   January 2015 demanding it to vacate the land in vain.

He adds that Shree Sanatan Dharm Mandal is now planning to seek legal redress demanding the school to vacate the land and pay all rental dues from the time of repossession.

Canon Edwin Babimpa Nuwagaba, the Head teacher for Kabale Secondary School however, says that he is aware of the land conflict and that the school administration wrote to the office of the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education seeking guidance but have never been replied to.

He says that the Ministry should quickly take appropriate intervention before the school is dragged to court.


John Chrysostom Muyingo the State Minister for Higher Education says the Ministry is aware of the matter and officials are discussing to have them resolved once and for all.

Kabale secondary school was founded in 1982 and has up 1700 students.
