Buganda Kingdom has given green light to Masaka district local government to continue occupying the buildings at Ssaza headquarters.
Masaka district leaders together with Buganda officials on Friday agreed to use the government valuer to establish the exact amount of money the district owes the kingdom since the district started occupying the buildings.
Buganda Kingdom had accused the leaders of Masaka district of deliberately failing to formalize their tenancy agreement.
It is reported that the district owes the kingdom over 1 billion shillings in outstanding ground rent arrears.
Namulondo Investments Ltd, the business arm of Buganda Kingdom had earlier written to Masaka district authorities asking them to vacate the buildings.
However, according to their legal advisor Magellan Kazibwe, they have agreed with the district leaders on the terms of payment as they continue occupying the buildings.
The Masaka LCV Chairperson Jude Mbabaali welcomed the decision by the Kingdom.
He says that they were still stuck on where to relocate to.
