KCC refuses to debate district land board reports
Kampala City Council has differed debate on reports from the District Land Board, on grounds that there is no sufficient time.
During a session this afternoon, resolved that thereports wuill be prioritised by the next council.
Shifra Lukwago, the council speaker, noted that council has for the last five years been demanding for the reports from the district land board, but to no avail.
Erias Lukwago, the Mayor elect refused to debate the reports, while some councilors like Anne Lubowa Nampeera, wondered why the reports had been presented as summaries.
The Secretary Kampala District Land Board, Sarah Kusiima,presented reports for 1999, 2000, 2008, 2009 and 2010 for debate because they were on the agenda.
The reports contain some revealing information about land that was formerly owned by Kampala City Council and was transferred from lease to freehold.
Reports have been rifethat land formerly owned by KCC had been sold at give away prices to private developers and the bulk of the money used to 'oil' fingers of KCC bureacrats.
Meanwhile, Before the session was adjourned to May 10th, when council is expected to windup its business at KCC, councilors protested the failure by council to pay their four months allowances.
Edward Muwanga, theNakawa division councillor noted that they were also affected by the prevailing rise in commodity prices and demanded to be paid their four months sitting allowance.

Cue out: …to come.”//
The District Speaker, Shifra Lukwago, did not allow debate on the same but urged the newly appointed Executive Director to take note.
