Businesses at the Centenary Park
along Jinja road in Kampala will today be evicted and land handed over to
government to pave way for construction of the Jinja Expressway.
Kampala Capital City Authority
(KCCA) Executive Director, Dorothy Kisaka in a letter to Nalongo Estates that
manages the property says President Yoweri Museveni ordered the land to be
handed over government for the construction of the expressway to
“His Excellency the President
directed that the land surveyed and demarcated at Centenary Park for the Jinja
Expressway should be immediately handed over to the Uganda National Roads
Authority (UNRA) to enable the commencement of work,” part of the letter
reads in part.
Kisaka also informed the commander
of Kampala Metropolitan Police SCP Moses Kafeero to deploy officers at the site
to ensure a peaceful handover.
The land has been under the management of Sarah Kizito, the owner of Nalongo Estates. She is also wife to former Kampala Central Division Mayor Godfrey Nyakaana.
