The minister of state for Land Persis Namuganza and her counterpart for Primary Education Rose Mary Sseninde spent the greatest part of Friday at Spire road Primary School where an endless land wrangle threatens the education of hundreds of pupils.
Under the guidance of parents and other stakeholders the ministers first toured the disputed school land where they tasked Jinja Municipal leaders to explain the circumstances under which several acres of land belonging to the school has been encroached on.
Thereafter the ministers convened a stakeholders meeting where they ordered the DPC of Jinja to summon all those who obtained land tittles on the school land to record statements at Police.
Namuganza ordered for the cancellation of these land tittles saying they were obtained illegally.
Sseninde halted the transfer of all 10 teachers at the school who were reportedly transferred over disagreements with their superiors. It is alleged that superiors were aiding the land grab.
They decried the rampant land grabbing of school land in Jinja where about five schools are fending off land grabbers.
Last year, parents at this school ganged up against a Jinja based tycoon identified as Yasin Lwanyaga who was found fencing off several acres of the school land.
