The National Social Security Fund-NSSF is embroiled in yet another land row in Hoima district.
Both NSSF and the district Local government, claim ownership of the land, located just adjacent to the Hoima Nursing School on the Hoima-Kampala road in Hoima town.
The feud been the two has been raging on since 2008, when NSS declared that it had acquired the contested piece of land, through the Hoima district land board without the consent of district officials.
NSSF claims they paid more than 200 million shillings for the land on which they planned to establish a multi million regional office block.
The transaction has however raised dust in Hoima, resulting into a probe into the circumstances under which the land was purchased.
The probe team found out that NSSF illegally acquired the piece of land, after the district land board officials denied any knowledge about the land deal.
Two weeks ago, NSSF fenced off the land, prompting renewed queries about the status of ownership.
Walter Iriama, The Hoima chief Administrative officer, through the NSSF's legal office ordered that no further developments on the contested land should take place. He also made it clear that the NSSF is trespassing on the land that belongs to the district local government.
George Tinkamanyire Bagonza, the Hoima district LC5 Chairman, says the district is seeking cancellation of the land lease by NSSF.
Bagonza says a team of district officials led by the chief Administrative officer will meet NSSF officials in Kampala to discuss the status of the land.
The chairman did not however specify on when the meeting would take place.
The National Social Security Fund has not officially issued a statement in relation to the contested land deal.
