Museveni Gives Catherine Bamugemereire Commission 18 More Months to Grill Suspected Land Grabbers
Museveni Extends Bamugemereire Commission Tenure for 18 Months
There will be more drama at at the National Records Centre and Archives Building in Wandegeya in Kampala for the next one and a half years after president Yoweri Museveni extended the tenure of a land probe commission headed by lady justice Catherine Bamugemereire.
Instituted in May 2017, the Bamugemereire Commission was supposed to last for six months.
When its tenure expired in November 2017, Museveni renewed it for another six months.
And a year later, Museveni has once given the commission some 18 months — that is a year and a half.
This extension will run until November 2019.
Commission lead counsel Ebert Byenkya told reporters that “the life of the commission was extended by the president and he issued a legal notice to that effect, and was gazetted on May 4 and extends the life of the commission for 18 months from the date of publication.”
Byenkya added that the team will continue to grill the mighty and the lowly involved in land grabbing across the country.
