In 2007, councilors of Njeru town council dragged Musoke to the Inspectorate of Government accusing him of nepotism and failure to declare his wealth.
Paul Musoke, the LC III chairperson of Njeru town council has attached Njeru taxi park land over a debt of 70 million shillings. The money was awarded to Musoke by Mukono chief magistrate as damages for illegal interdiction from office for alleged breach of the leadership code. In 2007, councilors of Njeru town council dragged Musoke to the Inspectorate of Government accusing him of nepotism and failure to declare his wealth.
They also interdicted Musoke from office on the advice of the IGG. Musoke dragged the town council to Mukono Chief Magistrate’s court challenging his interdiction. Mary Aikit, the Mukono chief magistrate ruled in his favor and awarded him shillings 70 million in damages. But Njeru town council failed to pay Musoke forcing his to apply to court to grant him authority to attach the town council property, which was granted.
Mary Aikit, the Mukono chief magistrate allowed Musoke to attach any immovable property to recover the shillings 70 million and other costs of the suit. As Robert Mugabe, a court bailiff hired by Musoke wrote to the town council on 12th July 2012 informing the authorities of their decision to attach the taxi park land.
He warned that the taxi park land will be auctioned by August 2012 unless the council pays all the money owed to his client and the accruing interest. But the decision by Musoke to attach the Njeru taxi park land has drawn protests from the town council speaker Ronald Katende.
He explains that they sat on the advice of the local government minister and passed a resolution to pay Musoke shillings 10 million each month saying that they cannot afford to pay the entire cost at once.

But Paul Musoke insists that the council pays him in full.
