President Museveni has appointed former Hoima District Woman MP Beatrice Nyakaisiki Byenkya as the head of Uganda Land Commission.
Byenkya, a former member of the 7th Parliament came to the public lime light in 2005 after rejecting Shs5m that was given out to lawmakers to carry out public consultations on the Article 105 (2) of 1995 Constitution.
After she lost her sit in Parliament, President appointed Byenkya to the Immigration and Citizen control Board in 2012.
She now replaces Baguma Isoke who served the Commission since August 2013.
Isoke who served his two terms as ULC boss replaced the late Jehoash Mayanja Nkangi.
In a letter dated April 8, 2019 addressed to the Speaker of Parliament, Museveni replaced all members of the commission save for Charles Muhoozi.
The new members include; former Iganga district chairperson Asuma Kyafu; former Gulu university Vice Chancellor Prof Nyeko Pen-Mogi, Stella Achan and former Kabale Town Clerk Rukiika Bujara.
ULC is a statutory body charged with managing government (public) land in the country.
