3 ARRESTED FOR FORGERY OVER DISPUTED MUBENDE LAND
The Commission of Inquiry into land matters has ordered the arrest of three relatives for forging documents that were used to evict 3,000 people from a private mailo land in Mubende district.
Those arrested include Milly Naava, Blasio Lule and Henry Kaaya.
The three relatives reportedly forged a letter of no objection, which was used to dupe court into granting letters of administration for the estate of Zakaliya Ssaku Kikonyogo, registered as Block 60,
Plot 1, Kitule village in Mubende district
The arrest came after the assistant Administrator General Ali Bogere disowned a letter dated 30th April, 2016, saying it's unusual that a government office would issue a letter on a Saturday and without opening a file.
He confirmed to the probe team that the certificate of no objection and the seal of the Administrator General were forged.
He added that the trio forged minutes and names, with an attendance list indicating that family meetings were conducted, under the Administrator General's stewardship.

Commission chairperson Justice Catherine Bamugemereire then instructed police investigators attached to the Land Commission to apprehend the three that were seated in the auditorium.
She said the Administrator General's documentation confirmed that the trio had attempted to hoodwink the Commission.
The main complaint at the Land Commission was the eviction of 3,000 Bibanja holders by the trio, led by Milly Naava, who was purportedly aided by army officials.
During earlier testimonies, Naava's relatives claimed she had forged documents, purporting that she owned the land.
