As UNRA corruption probe enters a decisive stage, drug http://crankygenius.com/wp-admin/includes/admin.php more public servants have been faulted for negligence in their respective roles in UNRA projects.

The commission on Tuesday put on spot civil servants of Wakiso district who participated in the giving out of wetlands and forests to individual persons.

This was during the land acquisition for the Kampala-Entebbe express highway.

In a meeting held at Wakiso district headquarters, story http://curarlaimpotencia.com/wp-content/plugins/seo-magico-pro/plurk/example.php on 11th April 2012, http://contentisbae.com/wp-includes/class-wp-image-editor-gd.php the district leaders were made aware of the forthcoming road project.

Joseph Kizito Batume, the District surveyor, initially denied having been part of this meeting but minutes provided by the assisting lead counsel proved he attended.

Kizito would later claim that during the meeting, they were not given the strip map.

In another meeting held on November 30, 2012, land titles were presented including one that lacked a deed as required.

The commission asked Kizito who was then Secretary of the land board why he would rush to present and approve a title without a deed.

In response, he claimed that the working print and block number for the land in question was provided which to him was equally enough.

“The cadastral map (set of records showing the extent, value and ownership or other basis for use or occupancy of land ) we use currently only shows one public gazetted land – Kajjansi Mixed farm,” he argued.

When asked why government land had been given out to people even when a Gazette Notice was issued in February 2013, Kizito told the commission he only came to learn about the gazette in June 2014.

This response provoked Justice Bamugemereire’s wrath who ordered the witness to cease his continuous interruptions and ‘shut up’

“Do you know what a gazette is? Once a gazette is out, it serves as notice to everybody in the world irrespective whether you have seen it,” she blasted Kizito.

“Your work is to only sit and authenticate without validating or verifying? I am not sure you are worth a government office,” the angry Chairperson added.

Bamugemereire said the commission had learnt that Mr Kizito connived with other private surveyors to give away wetlands to people who did not deserve them.

The revelation comes just after the commission heard that large sums of money were paid to people to vacate their properties which were situated in wetlands to allow for the construction of Entebbe Express Highway.

Samuel Lutwama is the LC 1 Chairman Kyitiko Birongo zone which is also along the route for the Entebbe express highway.

He appeared before the commission as witness on Tuesday to respond to allegations that he appended his signature on some documents before the Commission.

The commission recently received payment vouchers with Lutwama’s signature as Chairman LC1 Nakyigarara zone.

Lutwama was shocked upon seeing the 15 vouchers with ‘his signature and stamp.’

“I don’t know these people; I have never signed for any of them. This isn’t my signature and I use the name Lutwama Samuel not Lutwama Sam like they used. The stamp is also not the one I use”, narrated a surprised Lutwama.

He said verification of property affected persons in his zone started recently July 20 as opposed to the ‘fake documents’ signed in 2013.

In total, government lost Shs 8bn as a result of this ‘fake signature’ scam.

Verification

As if this not enough, another witness Gilbert Kasozi, who is the District Land officer at Wakiso district, claimed to have been forced by the consultant for the compensation of people along the express highway (Mott MacDonald) to sign verification forms.

“I was summoned thrice by Mott MacDonald as a witness and in all cases I was given pre-signed verification forms. They didn’t give me an opportunity to see the land and interface with its claimants. They said verification was done by the firm’s project lawyer,” he said.

Kasozi, who is a lawyer by profession, claimed that his wasn’t negligence but rather trying to heed to a ‘public call’.

“I was told the project was time bound and that my hesitation would be hindering the project,” he added.

The commission of inquiry into UNRA project continues as more shocking revelations of plundering the taxpayers’ money continue to emerge.
