Embattled Burahya County MP Margaret Muhanga has surrendered the Uganda Broadcasting Corporation land title to the chairman of the Committee on Statutory Authorities and State Enterprises-COSASE Abdu Katuntu.
The UBC land title which was subject to the probe was delivered by city lawyer Caleb Alaka.
Muhanga told COSASE this week that she paid sh10 billion in cash to get the land, using funds she raised from cows and goats.
Her response has created wild reactions, and subjected to social media jokes, from Muhanga herself and her brother Andrew Mwenda.
Muhanga however on Thursday said the title was indeed hers, and parliament should forget about it.
“Hey stay cool. The Supreme Court, the highest in the land already made a ruling on the UBC land and Parliament cannot overturn it. Period,” Muhanga said on Twitter a day after she was grilled by the House committee on state enterprises.
The committee chaired by Bugweri County MP Abdul Katuntu is scrutinizing the Auditor General’s report for 2013/14 and investigating the alleged fraudulent purchase of UBC land in Bugolobi a Kampala suburb.
Muhanga told a committee that she bought the land from court bailiffs at a cost of sh10b which she paid in cash.
