President Museveni has directed the Nakawa and Naguru estate tenants to vacate and pave way for an investor to start construction of 5,000 modern housing units.

Mr Museveni said in the statement issued by State House on Monday that the tenants should leave the condemned estates to allow OPEC Prime Properties take over the premises. His directive follows the expiry of the two weeks ultimatum by the Local Government ministry to tenants to vacate or face forced eviction.

The two estates in conflict consist of 1,747 dilapidated housing units occupying 29 hectares in Nakawa and 37 hectares in Naguru. The tenants had ignored the ultimatum, asking government to first identify an alternative place to resettle.

During the opening of new offices of the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence in Mbuya, Mr Museveni said government is committed to assisting the private sector to spur economic growth and development.

Kampala businessman Sudhir Ruparelia paid Shs90b for the construction of the facility in exchange for the land that has been housing CMI offices at Kitante.
