The minister of State for Education in charge of sports Charles Bakabulindi has become the first high ranking political figure to be named in the illegal land give away of Nakivubo stadium.

The minister’s name came out on Wednesday when a group of angry sports lovers under their umbrella body, sales Members of the Uganda sports Fraternity, visit this while appearing before the Parliamentary special committee investigating illegal land giveaway in Kampala told MPs that Bakabulindi connived with the Nakivubo land grabbers.

The group led by the former boxer David Kyambadde want parliament to intervene in the illegal takeover and encroachment on the Nakivubo war memorial stadium.

They accused Bakabulindi of presiding over the splitting of Nakivubo land, saying that the stadium initially had 13 acres but is now left with about 8 acres, as the rest has been taken by encroachers.

The association leader Daniel Walusimbi said that Minister Charles Bakabulindi told them that the stadium is being given away under the Public Private Partnership Bill, which in fact was not yet a law since President Museveni hadn’t signed it.

Walusimbi threatened to mobilize the sports fraternity to protest Nakivubo stadium land giveaway to Hamis Kiggundu [Ham], who wants to redevelop it to a modern stadium.

He said that if tycoon Ham wanted to redevelop the stadium, he should follow the laws and procedures and must not be hand-picked.

Walusimbi added that they could not accept the stadium which was given freely by the late Buganda King Daudi Chwa, to be taken by a private investor, adding that it ought to be treated as a monument.

The sports advocacy officer Pericarp Kiseka told MPs that it was unacceptable for the minister of Sports Bakabulindi to allege that Nakivubo is up for sale because of a Shs 800 million debt it owes to URA, adding that if this debt existed, URA should have arrested the then leaders of the stadium.

The group also called for disbandment of Nakivubo board of trustees on basis that it has failed to execute its duties.

Buvuma Islands MP and chairperson of the select committee investigating the takeover of land belonging to public schools Migadde Robert Ndugwa said they would visit Nakivubo next week to get to the root of this matter before inviting the minister of sports Charles Bakabulindi and the board next week.

Chimpreports was yet to successfully reach the Minister for comments.
