PIECE of land where Mengo evicted Bobi wine in 2017 has been given away to former Attorney General Mwesigwa Rukutana.
As you read this, Rukutana is constructing a hotel on the said controversial land which Mengo denied a fellow muganda (Kyagulanyi) a chance to develop it and instead sold it to Mwesigwa RUKUTANA!
A highly placed source in Mengo, confirmed that this land was given to Rukutana on lease and construction of his hotel building is underway.
Rukutana is a lawyer who appeared before the land probe headed by Lady Justice Catherine Bamugemereire in February 2019 and directed the judge to go and report him to God or if she wishes can go and hang!
In the last cabinet reshuffle, Rukutana the proprietor of Millennium Hotel located at Zana along Entebe road was transferred from attorney general chambers to Minister of State for Labour. Ccurrently he is Rushenyi County Member of Parliament.
On Friday April 8, 2017, Nkuluze (The Royal Treasury), an organ of Buganda Kingdom took possession of the controversial land at Kaazi-Busabala next to One Love Beach which owner of the beach Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu claimed.
That very day, a grader guarded by policemen demolished a parking facility and a road leading to Bobi Wine’s famous One Love Beach in Busabaala, Wakiso District. This was done on Mengo (Nkuluze) orders as Bobi Wine looked on.
In Bobi Wine’s explanation he claimed to have bought the 0.5acre piece of land and was processing a lease from Mengo. Bobi explained that he had deposited Uganda Shillings 20,000,000 with Nkuluze.
Later on, Mengo consented receipt of the same amount, in a statement released by the Institution’s Spokesperson Noa Kiyimba they explained that upon receiving the 20M, Bobi Wine owed the same office UGX18m (Eighteen Million Uganda Shillings Only) as part of the sub-lease for the 6.25 acres of his One Love Beach.
Part of the 20M was diverted it to settle the arrears and Bobi Wine was informed that the balance of UGX2m (Two Million Uganda Shillings Only) on the UGX20m he had deposited would be used as part payment of ground rent.
Bobi Wine who claims to be loyal to Mengo and Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi refused to explain much.
Efforts to contact Rukutana for a comment were futile as we couldn’t reach him on his known cell phone.
