Kyambogo University is on the verge of losing over 407 acres of the land housing the main campus in Kampala to unscrupulous people after establishing that the file containing the land title at Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) land office is missing.
This comes at a time when the Kampala District Land Board (KDLB) is claiming ownership of part of the University land dubbed “Kyambogo link land”.
The Vice-Chancellor of Kyambogo University, Prof Eli Katunguka in an interview held on February 16th, 2021 revealed that after realising that the KDLB was claiming ownership of part of their land, they sent their lawyers to lodge a caveat on their land only to find their files missing.
He says that their University lawyers lodged the caveat documents to the KCCA land office which is in charge of the University land but the title was not reflected on the land information systems neither was the physical file in the archives of the KCCA land office.
“The lawyers informed me that while they were trying to follow up, they were informed that the title is not reflected on the land information systems at KCCA land office. Neither is the physical file in the archives of the KCCA land office,” Prof Katunguka said.
He said they are left with one option of retrieving the physical file from the Ministry of Lands.
