Kiham enterprise has petitioned the Surveyors Registration Board and Institute of Surveyors of Uganda to take Disciplinary action against Wakiso District Surveyor Bashir Juma Kizito over an alleged Conflict of interest.
According to the complaint that was filed on September 19, Kiham enterprise wants the board to take disciplinary action against Mr. Juma Kizito.
The official is on the spot over ownership of a 140-acre piece of land at Kigo, Wakiso District, which is being disputed by the Buganda Land Board (BLB) and City Businessman Hamis Kigundu.
During the public hearing of the Buganda Land Board complaint by the commissioner of Land Registration, Mr. Kizito introduced himself as a district staff surveyor, a representative of the Buganda Land Board, and a lawful attorney of the Kabaka (King) of Buganda that happened in May 2022
“Wakiso District Land Board as a public office granted us permission to obtain freehold land titles over former public land. Currently, Bashir [Kizito] works as the district staff surveyor of Wakiso and has actual notice of our freehold land titles and truly participated in the process of their creation by checking and okaying the sub-divisions that happened on July 14, 2020,” The complainant further states
The complainant (Kiham Enterprises) said they discovered that Mr. Kizito authored a survey report which the Kabaka is relying on in his quest to have their freehold titles canceled.
To date, it is again Bashir Juma Kizito on top of the cancellation game of our freehold certificates of titles for our land situated in Kigo. This is a gross conflict of interest…, the very reason we are presenting him before the two bodies that govern professional and practicing surveyors in the country,” the complaint further read
