A 92 year old lady, Margaret Nanfuka and her four elderly sisters have run to the Justice Catherine Bamugemereire led land inquiry seeking its intervention in the matter in which their son Gerald Kasule family land to Indians investors.
Nanfuka told the probe that they are not sure of where they are going to buried because the burial ground has since been taken over by Indian investors and the bodies of the dead, including that of her late husband were exhumed.
She said Kasule first shrewdly asked her for the land titles that she had kept for years.
“I used to keep the land tittles myself, then one day he said I should hand over the tittles to him so he can go and check with the lands office whether they are still genuine due to mass land grabbing. Later, we were told that Indians had bought our land,” Nanfuka said.
The disputed land is comprised under Kyadondo block 29 , plot 632 and 772 Kanjokya street in Kamwokya.
The family is disheartened by the fact that the Indians who illegally bought the land have since tampered with the family’s burial grounds, exhumed the bodies and reburied them at a place they don’t know.
“It is hurting that even his father was buried there but after selling the land, his father, his grandfather and grandmother and other relatives were all exhumed and we don’t know where they were re- buried. Even us, we don’t know where we will be buried when we die,” Nanfuka said.
Kasule who was seated in the public gallery was quiet throughout the proceedings.
The elderly women also accused Kasule of corrupting the judicial system and bribing any authority that attempted to help them.
