The Kampala District Land Board (KDLB) offices are going to be re-opened by Kampala City Council Authority (KCCA).
The KDLB offices were closed by KCCA after Jennifer Musisi, KCCA director, directed their closure stating the abuse of office as the reason behind the closure. As investigations continue however, the offices have been reopened and the office bearers can access them and continue work as before.
The decision was reached upon during a council meeting yesterday in which they agreed that the offices should be re opened to allow the citizens of Kampala to access them and transact land as before.
During the meeting which turned out to be a heated argument, several councilors and the public struggled to raise their opinions above the clatter of voices. Some councilors were against the decision by Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago to accept MPs to speak during the meeting.
However, Lukwago argued that the MPs are ex-officials of the council and therefore mandated to speak during the council although he conceded that they are not allowed to vote.
