The former secretary, Uganda Land Commission (ULC), Elizabeth Laker, has been handed over to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), to explain how three acres of Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (UBC) land in Bugolobi, was allocated to private developers. Laker was today put to task by the public accounts committee of parliament, to explain how three acres of land were divided into seven plots and allocated to different people for residential purposes. One of the plots under contention is located on Mast Close Bugolobi and was allegedly sold to Lt Col Erick Mukasa. The other six plots were sold to Africa International Tourism Uganda Limited, AGM Limited of Amanya Mushega, and Major General Ivan Koreta among others. The committee chaired by Nandala Mafabi demanded a profile of Africa International Tourism Uganda Limited, but Laker told the committee that it was impossible to trace the company profile, because she could not recall anybody from that company. //Cue in: iRight up to# Cue out: #people are.i // Mafabi however described Laker a liar, and immediately handed her over to the CID, with an order to either produce the company profile or face arrest. //Cue in: iOC CID you# Cue out: #keep her.i // The UBC Acting Corporation Secretary, Francis Gimara, told the committee, that caveats have been placed on the remaining 18 acres and that the corporation is in the process of obtaining land titles from the Uganda Land Commission.
