By Steven Wandera

MASINDI: Abdul Sali the money lender based in Kira Municipality has dragged Henry Muganwa Kajura the former deputy prime minister to Masindi High Court over a debt of 500 million shillings.

According to Sali, a businessman and money lender, during the 2016 campaigns for the general election, Muganwa the then 1st deputy prime minister and minister for public services mortgaged his land title measuring 50 acres which is  located in Kitoba  Village Kitoba Sub County Bugahya county Hoima district to Abdul Sali to get a loan of 500 million shillings.

In a civil suit filed at Masindi High Court in 2018, Sali wants Muganwa to be evicted from the land with his entire family since he has failed to pay the money since 2016.

Appearing before Masindi high court for mention of the matter on Monday, Regina Kajura the wife of Kajura Muganwa who represented the former 1st deputy prime minister with their  lawyers asked court to allow them  transfer the powers of attorney from Kajura to the wife on health grounds and grant them two weeks to file their defence.

The Masindi High Court Resident Judge Jessy Byaruhanga granted the defendant three months leave to file all the necessary documents and adjourned the case up to 28th September for hearing.
