I have a friend whose new-year resolution was to start building a residential house on a plot he bought two years ago somewhere in Wakiso. He swiftly contracted a construction company and instructed them to start delivering building materials necessary for the initial phases.
They first took bricks to the site. But when they sent another truck to deliver sand, they were shocked to find huge logs in the middle of what was supposed to be the road leading to his plot.
While touring the county of Bugerere in 2014, the Kabaka of Buganda called for the development, re-development and modernization of all Ssaza and Gombolola land. The said land had just been returned to Buganda Kingdom in 2013 after an agreement between Buganda and central government. This land had been confiscated in 1966 by the Milton Obote government who subsequently abolished kingdoms a year later.
Therefore, the Kabaka argued that ‘Kingdom land cannot be left undeveloped’.
The CEO of BLB Omuk. Simon Kabogoza delivered key remarks at the launch of the second phase of the responsible land policy program funded by German organisation-GIZ.
Omuk. Kabogoza has applauded GIZ for earmarking BLB as a key stakeholder in the second phase and pledged the organization’s technical support especially in filling the knowledge gap amongst people through sensitization.
Mr. Harrison Irumba from the Ministry of Lands welcomed BLB aboard, acknowledging the organization’s experience and competence in land management.

If you are still trying to multiply your money, stay away from rentals. But if you're starting to generate excess cash flow, I want you to seriously consider investing in rentals. Here are the 5 key areas to consider:
A good rental investment starts with a good investment in land. Buy land near a solid economic base & good transport infrastructure and social services. Buy land that is likely to appreciate in the future. Goof up on this & nothing will save you.

On January 5th, 2023, The New Vision published an article by Hon. Sam Mayanja, the state minister for Lands, saying that the Traditional Rulers (Restitution Of Assets And Properties) Act is a nullity. According to the Blacks Law dictionary, a nullity is something that is legally void.
The question then goes; what makes this particular legislation a nullity?

Our lives seem incomplete when we do not have a place we call home. I am not talking about a rented house. I am referring to that place that you own, where you can raise children, reflect and plan for your future in peace with no one knocking on the door to remind you of unpaid rent.
