KYADONDO EAST legislator Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine is sad and blue after it emerged that the land on which his #Ghetto_Republic sits has been sold off (leased) to an investor believed to be the brother of Gabonese President.
According to an Agreement of Sale of Land, M/s Pearl Hope Investments, owner of the disputed land, measuring about 26 acres and located on Block 213 Plots 20-78, while other plots are marked as 1979, 20186, and 1977, have been sold to Mr Ulrich Anass Bongo Ngoyi.
“In consideration of $15m (Fifteen million United States Dollars) the vendor agrees to sell and the purchaser agrees to purchase the Leasehold interest which will be converted out of a Mailo interest (measuringabout 26 acres of land for a period of 99 years’ renewable on agreed Terms and conditions for another period of 99 years after the expiration of the initial lease,” the agreement of sale of land reads in part.
Bongo is represented by M/S EUSTERA INTERNATIONAL FZE, based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
In March, M/s Pearl Hope Investments Limited, through Lubega, notified Bobi Wine and others in separate letters about the planned eviction on the contested land. Bobi Wine’s famed Ssemakokiro Plaza sits on the same land with the plaze habitting the Firebase offices and the #People_Power offices.
At least 400 families in the ghetto zones of Mulimira, Kisenyi and Old Kira Road are under threat of eviction.
The singer-cum-politician is accused of buying the land from a one Gladys Nanyonga without the consent of the landlord.
