Bunyoro Kitara Kingdomâ€™s royal Samuel Nyaika is demanding for compensation from the Administrator General of Uganda for not benefiting from the share which was left by his father Sit Tito Winyi.
Nyaika says that in 2013 he sued the Administrator general, His royal highness Solomon Gafabusa Â Iguru the Omukama of Bunyoro Kitara kingdom, Godfrey Magezi Kwirigira and Komukyeya Doreen the Estate administrator Musa Rugaba accusing them of conniving with administrator Generalâ€™s office to get the power of attorney to manage the Kingdomâ€™s properties without his knowledge and yet is supposed to know as a member of the royal family.
Nyaika adds that the Administrator General has been mismanaging Bunyoroâ€™s restituted properties by giving them to a few individuals without giving accountability, the will and the inventory and yet there are people who have the letters of administration and are supposed to be contacted first.
He also accuses the Administrator of not fulfilling his duties explaining that when his father Sir Tito winyi died, the Administrator General was supposed to take care of his life, accord him good education, feeding, among others but all in vain.
Nyaika says among the estates which were mismanaged is the one square mile of land located at Kyesiga in Bugahya county Hoima district. He says that the land was allocated to an individual who is not a member of the royal family and yet it is a kingdomâ€™s property which is supposed to benefit everyone in the royal family.
He adds that he has never benefited from any property left by his father Sir Tito winyi and yet he is supposed to.
He says that he wants the Administrator General to compensate him for the damages and the losses he has incurred adding that it is only him who has been affected but also the other family members.
He explains that he went to court such that it can determine what should be paid to him saying that right now he cannot determine the amount he is supposed to be paid since it is a lot of money and it needs time to determine it.
According to Nyaika, he filed the case in 2013 in the family division at the high court in Kampala but it was transferred to Masindi high court on Omukamaâ€™s request.
Yesterday the case was supposed to be heard by the Masindi High court Â resident Â judge, Paul Gadenya Wolimbwa, but none of the accused Â surfaced in court which forced the judge to adjourn the matter to 24th/February 2020.
Nyaika was flunked by his sister Joan K Gafabusa to court. Gafabusa Â told our reporter that on the 22ndÂ of Â June2019 three people from the royal family including; Solomon Gafabusa Iguru the Bunyoroâ€™s king, Joan K Gafabusa and Harrison Kintu Gafabusa Â secured letters of administration which will help them administer all Bunyoroâ€™s restituted properties.
She adds that no one in Bunyoro has authority to sell any kingdom property without their consent.
She also warns residents of and nonresidents of Bunyoro to stop involving in any transaction of the Kingdomâ€™s property without consulting them.
