President Yoweri Museveni has extended the term of the Commission of Inquiry into Land Matters for the next 18 months. This was after the Commission’s initial one year term ended yesterday.
In December 2016, President Museveni appointed Court of Appeal judge, Catherine Bamugemereire to head the seven-man committee to probe into land matters but the Commission had been held up for several months due to lack of funds hence starting its work in May 2017.
While addressing Journalists today at the National Archives Center in Kampala, Justice Bamugemereire communicated the President’s decision to renew the term of her Commission in a legal notice No.6 of 2018.
According to Bamugemereire, the President under the same legal notice dated 4th this month also appointed Dr. Douglas Singiza as Secretary to the Commission replacing Lady Justice Olive Kazare who was earlier promoted to a Judge of the High Court.
The President also appointed Daniel Lutiba as a Deputy Secretary and John Bosco Suuza Lujakata as Deputy Lead Counsel from Assistant Lead Counsel and Andrew Odiiti as new Assistant Lead Counsel of the Commission. Bamugemereire pledged that her commission will continue to work in order to achieve the goals of the terms of the commission.
