Rwampara MP Grilled at CID over land matters

Police has Thursday interrogated the Rwampara Constituency Member of Parliament hon. Charles Ngabirano over alleged fraud in connection with acquisition and transfer of public land into private means.


Ngabirano appeared at the Police Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID), Kibuli in Makindye Division following the summons and was later released on police bond. 


Vincent Ssekatte the Police CID Spokesperson says investigations into the illegal acquisition and allocation of government land that houses district veterinary plot in Mbarara Municipality are ongoing. 


His troubles came after concerned citizens complained about the illegal allocation of various plots of land in Mbarara District.


However, after close to four hours of questioning, the MP told reporters that he was only invited to CID to present his documents proving ownership of the land.


Hon. Ngabirano argues that he purchased the land on two plots to construct a hotel but plans are underway to exchange it with the church.
