Ssenyonjo Rashid Musisi has dragged Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) to court accusing it of encroaching on his land comprised in Kyadondo on Block 267 plots 195 and 197 at Lweza during the ongoing construction of the Bunamwaya-Entebbe road.
In his application filed through his lawyers of Nalukoola, Kakeeto Advocates and Solicitors, Ssenyonjo alleges that KCCA constructed a road on the said land without his consent or compensating him.
That KCCA went ahead and brought construction materials on the said land on top of excavating and ferrying materials like stones from that land.
“The defendant has no claim known at law whatsoever and she has commenced Entebbe-Bunamwaya road construction without any justification law,” reads part of the plaint.
Ssenyonjo says that being that heavy machines are being used in the construction of this road, his property has developed cracks and fissures which have damaged the walls of his structures.
“The plaintiff shall aver and contend that the actions are aimed at depriving him of his land.”
Therefore he has asked the court to declare that denying him a chance to use his land is a violation of his constitutional right to property.
“The plaintiff will aver and contend that he has suffered and he is continuing to suffer financial loss, inconvenience, deprivation, told and untold embarrassments at the hands of the defendants and her agents,” reads the plaint.
It’s from the above background that the applicant has asked the court to order KCCA to compensate him for the damages, costs of the suit on top of issuing a permanent injunction restraining the respondent and his agents from further trespassing on the said land.
