1/4. THE SURVEYING of the land in Uganda, especially in Buganda was completed by 1936. The ‘master records’ [called ‘mother titles’ in Ugandan speak] were stored at Entebbe as well as at the ordinance ofiice in London.
2/4. So, for the Council in Kampala to take land and ‘allocate it’ without the title-owner’s signature on the transfer form results into a illegal/fraudulent titlle-deed.
3/4. It’s like some one getting a loan from you, you take the logbook of his vehicle, without signature on the transfer forms at the URA [Tax authority]. The ownership has not changed in any way.
4/4. Land in Buganda can theefore only be ‘stolen’ temporarily only.
