Ex-Kawempe North MP Latif Sebaggala, who is also a key leader in the Muslim faith, has raised a red flag implicating Harris International, a company that manufactures Riham products, in what he describes as a sinister plan to undermine the Muslim faith in Uganda by diminishing the geographical territory of Nabisunsa Girls School which they own.
Latif Sebaggala, whose moderate approach causes him to be respected by many including people in government, says that the officials at Uganda Land Commission (ULC whose chaos we have been writing about https://mulengeranews.com/ulc-bosses-undress-byenkya-before-minister-nabakooba/) have written letters acquiescing to the giving away of some of the land (7 hectares) belonging to Nabisunsa, a leading Muslim Girls School that is famous for quality education. In the last close to 70 years of existence, Nabisunsa has produced many powerful citizens making its alumni association to be one of the most prestigious in this country.
Latif, formerly the Imam of Parliament, calls on fellow Muslim clerics to rise up in arms against the Riham Company because an attack on Nabisunsa is an attack on their faith. That Muslims must fight hard for Nabisunsa because it’s one of the very few treasures they have as theirs as a faith. He says the school has existed and owned this land, located after Nakawa/Kyambogo (shortly before Banda) for close to 70 years and the ULC move to dispossess them of the same must be resisted.
He claims that in favoring Riham or Harris International, the ULC officials are working closely in cohorts with others at the Ministry of Lands. He writes: “It’s alleged that Harris International are the ones behind grabbing this Muslim institution land which is unacceptable.” Latif, renowned for his progressive views and for wishing everyone well, implores the Education Minister Janet Museveni to prove her credentials as a celebrated defender of the Girl Child by using her clout to rebuke ULC, the Lands Ministry officials and the private investor they are favoring off the Nabisunsa school land.
Latif reveals that in total, Nabisunsa Girls owns up to 37 hectares of land and that it’s their duty as Muslims to ensure not even a fraction of that estate is lost to the menacing private investors whose appetite to grab public land is legendary and well known.
