Church of Uganda Mbale City involved in Land Grabbing

By Melanie Aanyu,

Church of Uganda Mbale City is embroiled in land grabbing wrangles of part of Wambwa primary school playground in Malukhu ward Mbale Industrial city division where they have put a temporary church.

The Church of Uganda is reportedly accused of grabbing part of the land belonging to the school and putting up a church thereby annoying the community.

Yesterday the developers had started erecting a fence and separating the land which is approximately two acres from the school .

The Youths councilor of Industrial city division Wilson Lukaye told Time Fm this morning that they believe the church of Uganda is conniving with some people to get a fake land title in order to grab the school land.

However the Church Authorities confirm that they are developing their land and claim that they have a freehold land Title.

Rev Can Kutosi Titus Nelson, of Cathedral church in Mbale said they were putting up a temporary church as they look for money to build a permanent one.

However the Resident City Commissioner Mbale Ahmada Washaki yesterday halted all operations on the land pending investigations into the matter .
