The Land Inquiry Commission has recommended a mental evaluation for a witness who appeared before the Justice Catherine Bamugemereire team.
The witness was answering queries before the commission on the sale of a one acre piece of land in Mpererwe that was sold to John Matovu without giving the Kibudde family chance to buy the land where they sit as tenants.
David Tamale, one of the family members from the Tamale family that owned the land originally, is said to have dealt with Matovu to fraudulently chase away the Kibudde family.
David Tamale (63) who has powers of attorney on the said land shocked the commissioners in the land probe when he revealed that John Matovu bought the said land at 200 million shillings and first paid him 50 million in installments. When asked whether he is contented with the amount he received, Tamale’s incomprehensible answers forced the commissioners to wonder if he has a mental health problem.
The commission therefore instructed investigators to go with him and monitor him for some days to understand how he goes about his business, speak to his personal doctor and make a report after.
While giving his submission David Tamale kept of referring to the Kibudde family, of which he is a part, as being violent and that his late father warned him of this family and it’s the reason he never consulted them when he wanted to sell off the land.
Yesterday John Matovu appeared before the same probe and he was given instructions never to step on the contested land before the commission gives its report.
