The coordinator of intelligence services, Gen. David Tinyefuza today morning (Wednesday) vacated the house belonging to the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA), ending a row over its occupation.
The house located on Plot 2, Mabua Road in Kololo, an upscale Kampala suburb, served as a national intelligence coordinator centre headed by Gen.Tinyefuza.
By 9:00am, all the property in the posh house had been removed. The last items which included chairs, tables and other household items were ferried on two small pick-ups at 8:30am.
Speaking shortly after handing over the house to KCCA, security minister, Muruli Mukasa lauded the Authority for allowing the army to use the house.
He appealed to KCCA to maintain a cordial relationship with the army, saying both were serving the good of the country.
The keys of the house have been given to the Deputy Director of physical planning Goerge Agaba by the security minister Mukasa Muluuli.
The hand over marks the end of a standoff between KCCA and General Tinyefuza, who had earlier threatened to arrest any one who attempted to evict him.
The recovery of the house is part of a campaign by KCCA to recover its properties, which were illegally sold off or given away by the previous leadership.
Agaba says there are more KCCA properties that are still in the wrong hands, which the authority is vowing to pursue.
Gen. Tinyefuza was not at the scene but the house was empty and clean.
