MUKONO: State house has summoned a land grabber who evicted over 50 households in Namulaba village, Dundu parish in Mukono district.

The summons were directed to Mohamed Ssekweyama Mugwanyama by state house was after this website published an article about the plight of evicted families by Mugwanyama claiming he wanted to use his land.

According to the state house summons letters signed by Susan Abo the Presidential private secretary on legal affairs seen by this website, Mugwanyama is supposed to face the state house team on 2nd of May 2023 for questioning.


The summon letter further asks Mugwanyama to prove beyond doubts that the land measuring up to 7 acres he evicted people from was really his own.

Janet Alice Nansiri aged  86 years who’s one of the victims said summoning Mugwanya the grabber of their land was a milestone that will make them reclaim their land. She says they have also been invited to the state house on the same date.

“We have suffered, all our crops have been destroyed, houses demolished by Mugwanyama yet that land belongs to my parents who  lived in it for 100 years”-she says.

Wilson Kiggwe another complaint told this website that Ssekweyama has so far used the chemical to spray their remaining crops and that now the crops have all dried up.

“This land grabber is threatening us with his pistol and he’s working with police and other security officers in the district to harass us”-Kigwe revealed

Several attempts to get a comment from Muhamed Ssekweyama were futile as he could not pick up our repeated calls. However in the first story this website published he said the land belongs to him adding that that he bought it from Robert Ndide.

Robert Mukasa another resident claims Ssekweyama uses money to bribe people including some journalists to be on his side.
