He says that KIU was not among individuals to be assigned land in the bureau mandate of the 13 financial backers supported.

Anyway the commission said that they followed up on an official mandate of 29th September 2010 which requested them to apportion Basajjabalaba’s University with 20 sections of land to cater for University extension, however they just had 14 sections of land left.
