Following the announcement by the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) on 18th April 2017 that it had redeemed its interests in Nsimbe Holdings Limited, acquiring a total of 830.68 acres of prime land located at Nsimbe and Seeta, a group of scrupulous individuals led by Leo Kimalempaka have come forward to claim and forcefully take possession of the Fund’s land.
To cement their baseless claims they instituted a suit reference number HCCS 93 of 2017 at Mpigi High Court seeking to have the Fund’s Certificates of Titles cancelled and to issue an injunction to stop the Fund from utilising and developing the said Land as per miscellaneous application129 of 2017.
The Mpigi High Court ruled that NSSF is the registered proprietor of the land, is in full possession of the land and is in advanced stages of developing the land. Court therefore refused to grant the injunction sought by the applicant.
It is unfortunate that having failed in court the said individuals have now resorted to unlawful means to take possession of the Land. This amounts to criminal trespass.
The Fund has through its lawyers written to Uganda Police to ensure that the trespassers are brought to book.
We would like to reiterate that the Fund is the rightful owner of the 830.68acres of land, is in full possession of the land and has embarked on plans to establish a low cost housing estate on the same.
We further state that decisions regarding this transaction, and indeed all investment decisions are made in the interest of the members of the Fund, guided by the law, our internal policies and procedures.
