Edmund Rurangaranga the son to the late Maj. Gen. Edward Rurangaranga has vowed to sue Kitagata town council for demolishing a market he had constructed to help residents.
Edmund told www.mknewslink.com in a telephone interview from London that he had constructed the market on his land but not on NEMA’s as alleged.
The town clerk for Kitagata town council Sylivia Nampe Bategana told www.mknewslink.com that she has severally warned Rurangaranga both verbally and in writing to demolish the market but all in vain.
She added that she finally called in NEMA from regional office in Mbarara to come and demolish the market which they did.
According to NEMA south western region team leader Harriet Namara, the market was built inside NEMA’s boundary marks
Despite all the above from NEMA and town clerk, Edmund contains that on Monday, his lawyers will start work of suing Kitagata town council for masterminding the demolition of the market he had set up for vulnerable people.
He wondered why they demolished only his market and left other stalls intact.
However, Harriet Namara told www.mknewslink.com that the owners of the other stalls will be given ultimatum to vacate and if they don’t comply, their stalls will also be demolished.
