Deputy Chief Justice Steven Kavuma has filed defence before the Lands division of the High Court denying accusations of land grabbing.

Through his lawyers, Tumusime, Kabega & company Advocates,  Kavuma says he never grabbed any land from anybody citing that he  bought it in early 1980s from the late Charles Makayu.

About fortnight ago, John Sentongo, a resident of Makindye dragged Kavuma to the same court through M/s KGN Advocates, accusing him of trespassing on his land worth over sh200m.

According to court documents, the land in question comprises of plots 1257 and 1258 at Kizungu Zone in Makindye measuring 220ft x 212ft x 160ft is adjacent to the plot belonging to Kavuma.

Justice Kavuma says Sentongo is a trespasser on his land and he was entitled to report him to Police for criminal trespass. He adds that Sentongo committed a criminal offence, and that he does not deserve court protection.
