Renowned businessman Hamis Kiggundu is at war with Buganda Kingdom over a 140 acre prime land in Kigo, which Mengo clearly maintains is Kabaka’s land.
The saga started On Friday when Ham through his real estate company- Kiham Enterprises (U) Limited deployed casual laborers and grader operators who started excavating and clearing it out.
Ham co-owns the real estate company with his uncle Nakibinge Kaggwa (Ham owns 99 percent shares whereas Nakibinge owns 1 percent).
The contested land is located on the stretch lying between Victoria Serena Hotel and Mirembe Villas.
According to Mulengera, a local news website, the Ham Enterprises proprietor justifies his claim over the 140 acres of land on grounds that the same was sold to him by Wakiso District Land Board some years ago under the following particulars: “WAK6104 Folio 25 Block 273 Plot 23977 at Kigo.”
The Kabaka entourage and that of Ham spent the whole day confronting each other and exchanging bitter words as Police intervened to protect and enable what Kabogoza calls the illegal activities that were being carried out by the agents of the city tycoon who was equally on scene.
The Uganda National Roads Authority team, comprising of William Matovu and other employees, was at hand to corroborate everything Nakibinge Kaggwa and his boss Ham were saying to justify their claim against the Kabaka of Buganda.
However according to reliable sources, its alleged that city Tycoon Ham Kiggundu is being inspired by his fellow businessman Lawrence Mulindwa’s success at Kitende and he wants to also use the 140 acres of the contested land to set up a huge recreation complex that will comprise of a modern stadium among other amenities.
