Jacqueline Atugonza, the secretary of the Kampala District Land Board (KDLB), is being held at Jinja Road Police Station, as detectives investigate questionable allocation of government land to private developers.
Atugonza was arrested on Tuesday by operatives from State House Anti-Corruption Unit on the orders of President Yoweri Museveni. According to reports, Atugonza, working with other officials on the board, dubiously sold government land to businessmen in town.
One of the key land deals being investigated is that of Kiira Road Police in Kamwokya, a suburb of Kampala. It was sold to a businessman in Kampala who is erecting flats on it.
