NSSF Set to Evict Lubowa Land Occupants

The National Social Security Fund (NSSF) has stepped up pressure on the squatters on a portion of its land at Lubowa in Wakiso District in preparation for the development of the Housing project.

The development will comprise of 2, approved 741 houses, there and associated amenities on a total of 565 acres.

NSSF says it acquired the piece of land between October and November 2003, cheap from three sellers namely; Uganda Company Holdings Limited, National Housing and Construction Corporation and a one Mr. Peter Emusugut, a private citizen.

A number of squatters Chimpreports understands have defied court orders to vacate the land despite that fact that NSSF claims possession of all 114 titles to the land

The squatters are led by one David Kyambadde, who claims ownership of part of the land [0.8 hectares on Block 269, Plot 1058].

The other claimants are Matthias Jumba, who occupied 2 acres in 2008 and expanded to 70 acres by 2014; Josephine Nyinabazungu, Kevina Namatovu and Asuman Bitaba.

When Mr Kyambadde laid claim to the plot he is occupying, NSSF responded by erecting physical deterrence and also filed criminal and civil cases seeking eviction orders against him and other encroachers.

In a judgment delivered on May 25, 2015, Justice Andrew K. Bashaija ruled that Mr. Kyambadde was indeed a trespasser and unlawfully occupied a portion of the Fund’s land.


The Judge also issued an order that Mr. Kyambadde be evicted from the land and that the structures he erected be demolished.

In a statement issued on Friday, the Fund’s Deputy Managing Director Mrs Geraldine Ssali Busuulwa revealed that procurement of a contractor for the Housing project is in its final stages, and that soon the illegal occupants will soon be forced out.

“Whereas other trespassers voluntarily left, Mr. Kyambadde resisted, in contravention of the court orders. The Fund alerted the relevant authorities and they have commenced to fully implement the court order,” she said.

The Fund has also constructed 4 police booths strategically placed at different spots on the land, which are expected to be commissioned by the Inspector General of Police to boost security.
