President Yoweri Museveni’s letter about Owino Market

Museveni’s letter titled RE: ST. BALIKUDDEMBE (OWINO) MARKET, reads in part thus;

The above subject matter refers.

I have got a letter from Dr. David Balondemu, Chairman Kampala District Land Board, regarding St. Balikuddembe Market which had been given to the traders operating there in 2014, which was a wrong policy.

Markets are Nursery Schools for our low-income business beginners. They should operate there cheaply and when they are richer move out to more expensive operational bases.

When you privatise it to the present traders, what happens to future generations?

Fortunately, they failed to use the 10 years’ probation to develop the market as provided for by the covenants.

The Land Board, having also heard of my policy position, cancelled the title to the traders (vendors).

However, somebody going by the title of Commissioner, Land Registration, has refused to hand back the title.

Therefore, I hereby direct that you rescue this title immediately and inform e. I thank and commend those that brought all this information to my attention.”
