The City Businessman Sudir Rupaleria has faced it hard before the Land Commission of Inquiry led by Justice Catherine Bamugereire how he acquired the 6 acres of Kololo Secondary School play ground in 2013, located on plots 60 and 68 along Lugogo bypass in Naguru, Kampala.
It is said that Rupaleria connived with the Uganda Land Commission (ULC) to fraudulently acquire the land to the tune of 120mshs on a renewable lease hold of 5 years.
He surprisingly obtained a 99year lease extension just after five months after processing the land papers without the knowledge of the Kololo S.S school management.
On the intention to construct commercial structures on the said land, Rupaleria, who is also the proprietor of Kampala Parents School explained that he wanted to establish a modern play ground that would be shared by both his institution and Kololo S.S.
However, the commission discovered that the Rupaleria sub-divided the land into 16 titles and has fenced off the play ground denying access to even Kololo S.S School.
Kololo S.S, a government school was established in 1954 by the Europeans and obtained all its land titles in 1962.
