The Executions and Bailiffs Division of the High Court has ordered the eviction of a police chief from prime property previously owned by departed Asians located in Old Kampala.
According to court, head of police’s Directorate of Crime Intelligence, Lt Col Ndahura Birakurataki Atwooki, has been illegally occupying the said property for some time now.
Last month, Muse Musimbi, the registrar of the court issued the eviction order saying the police chief should leave the premises by July 8 so as to give possession to the rightful owner of the prime property, Mr Aneez Jaffer.
“Whereas the said defendant has not vacated the said suit comprised in Plot 16 Old Kampala Road LVR 2631 Folio 13, this is to direct Ezama Apollo Olema Court Bailiffs to remove Ndahura Atwooki, their agents or any other bound by this order and put Aneez Jaffer in possession of the suit property,” reads in part the court’s eviction order.
Court heard that Jaffer, is a representative of the departed Asians who claimed the repossession of the said piece of property in question.
However, Lt Col Ndahura and Bernard Tumwesigire, who are both senior army officers, had made some developments on the disputed piece of land but demanded to be compensated before they could give full possession of the land to Jaffer.
Ndahura is the officer who in January 2016 asked High Court in Kampala to disqualify FDC candidate, Kizza Besigye, from taking part in the February 2016 presidential elections.
Ndahura sued Besigye in October 2012 for allegedly defaming him in interview with The Observer including the newspaper and its editor as well.
Besigye allegedly said that Ndahura, while commanding the then Presidential Protection Unit (PPU), was behind the killing of John Baronda in Rukungiri, and that the army after that incident, promoted him to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.
