A magistrate at Buganda Road Court is in court battling with a case in which he was conned of sh100m in a land deal in Wakiso district.
In a civil case filed at the High Court in Kampala,Magistrate Araali Muhirwa claims that he was issued fake land titles by one ,Emanuel Ruhakana after purchasing a 14.2-acre piece of land comprised in Block 195 Plots 172,190,189, 173, 55, and 61, situated at Kaliti.
The sale agreement is dated June 27, 2013.
The magistrate argues that after paying sh100m of the agreed sh150m, Mr Ruhakana promised to introduce him to the local authorities where the land is located, but his efforts to accomplish that have so far been futile.
He adds that when he tried to introduce himself to the authorities, he was shocked to hear that the piece of land he was claiming was already bought by another person.
Muhiirwa states that on verification of the land at the Land Registry, he was told that he was conned .
