Former Health minister Rt. Maj. General Jim Muhwezi has gone to the High court seeking orders to block his eviction from land in Kyadondo block 273 at Kyamula -Salaama in Makindye division .
Through his lawyer Ahmed Mukasa Kalule, Muhwezi wants a stay of execution on grounds that he is the rightful owner of the land in contention.
Muhwezi alleges that he has been peacefully and quietly enjoying the said property for the past 23 years since 1995 when he purchased it from a one William Hitman.
He adds that he was surprised when last week, court bailiffs came and tried to evict him on instructions of a one James Mubiru.
Mubiru sought intervention of court bailiffs on grounds that Maj. Gen Muhwezi fraudulently obtained this land which he (Mubiru ) claims forms part of the estate of his late father the late George Ssekajjugo.
Mubiru states that he legally owns this land being a biological son of the late Sekajjugo and therefore the rightful beneficiary .
However Muhwezi contends that his eviction from the said land is pre-mature because there are pending court cases and staying orders which Mubiru over looked before securing an eviction order .
The court has fixed tomorrow afternoon to have the application hear by Deputy registrar Deo Nzeyimana.
