Drake Lubega, a Kampala based businessman has told court that he wants Muslims off the disputed Uganda Muslim Supreme Council property, located on plot 30 on William Street.
Lubega, one of the people cited in the controversial transactions of the Muslim properties, was testifying in a case in which the Mufti of Uganda, Sheikh Shaban Mubajje, former UMSC secretary general, Edris Kasenene and the Chairperson of Supreme Council Hassan Basajabalaba are charged with the fraudulent disposal of Muslim trustee properties.
The trio is accused of making documents without authority and conspiracy to defraud the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council.
They were sued following investigations by an independent commission on the alleged illegal sale of Supreme Council properties in Kampala.
Lubega told court presided over by Buganda Road Court Chief Magistrate, Margaret Tibulya that he acquired a 30 year lease from First Merchant, a Company owned by city tycoon, Hassan Basajabalaba at 3.4billion shillings.
Lubega claims that he made an initial payment of 1.7 billion shillings and cleared the balance after the transfers were made. He said that he wants the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council to evict a group of Muslims operating a mosque on the property.
Mohammad Mpeza, the Chairperson of a Commission that probed the fraudulent transfer and sale of Muslim Properties, told court that the transfer documents to Basajabalaba's First Merchant Company were signed by the Mufti, his co-accused and the former UMSC Chairman Hajji Ali Adrama.
Buganda Road Chief Magistrate, Margaret Tibulya, has adjourned hearing of the case to July 4th.
