The family of the late Omuse Benard who hailed from Osukuru town council opposite Tororo cement factory then known as Uganda cement Industries in a land battle now a section of brothers have come out to defend Great Aubrey Memorial Collage and its proprietor Rev Father Centurio Olaboro their brother and also a son to the late Benard Omuse.
In the last few months, there has been controversy over ownership of school land by the family Okedi David and Agnes Akoth claiming a part of it as a part of them claim.
Omuse Peter, a son in the family, defended his elder brother Fr Centurio Olaboro from these false accusations.
The board of governors of Great Aubrey Memorial collage resolved to buy land for the school from one Bazil Olungat a neighbour to the school having the only brother by then at home David Okedi Omise since the priest Rev Fr Centurio Olaboro was busy with church work so engaging him looked impossible.
However, upon some of the board members noticing the young man was becoming arrogant they did not give him the tool to execute the transactions and so this was normalized using the members of staff who were around as Fr Olaboro facilitated this exercise and all the required funds were given as Bazil Olungat wanted in the presence of the local council one chairperson UCI central Kefa Othieno as well as witnessed by lawyers.
Benard Omuse another younger brother to Rev Fr Olaboro denied claims of land grabbing adding the people causing confusion in the family do not want to see their family doing it out of jealousy of others progressing as he noted with sadness that their is a lot to benefit as a united family.
Omuse accused the fighting side of enemies of success in the family adding David Okedi Omuse one of their brothers currently he has forgotten he participated in the process of division of land and now he is using his portion for farming, he has a canteen and hiring of rooms to workers within the area.
Another brother Steven Omuse said the disgruntled brother and sister are being funned by external forces who carry their quarrels from the church and want to use the members of the home to discredit the priest’s duty assignment is to protect and defend the church’s land belonging to the Archdiocese of Tororo.
Adding two weeks ago their sister Agnes Akoth turned up with buyers of land without intimating this information to her brother Nicholus Oporia Omuse as things turned soar for her it took the intervention of the LC1 chairperson to quell the confusion as she survived Oporia’s hand in this matter.
Rev Fr Centurio Olaboro the eldest son of the late Omuse Benard said he has always moderated the disgruntled brother and sister to look for peaceful channels to address their grievances and if they so wish to get financial assistance from him he will gladly support them at any point.
He warned that court cases in family matters are very disastrous and no solutions at all extending an olive branch to his younger brother Akoth Agnes And Okedi David to come sit together with the rest and settle family issues.
Fr Olaboro continues to narrate his dismay and shock about where to accommodate this upcoming matter after the loss of his mother he received a 59 years man identified as Omoding Jethro has puzzled him and the other brothers drumming up confusion and beefed up the number of disgruntled family members.
Kefa Othieno the LC1 of UCI central zone called upon the family to sit down and accept to work together he warned any of the family members who will either assault or cause damage to anyone’s property would face the law of the country
Othieno adds that his office will not participate in any fraudulent sales of land as it is today with conflict particularly the family of the late Mzee Benard Omuse he has tasked all their family members who are not contented with the division by the clan to seek legal redress and not causing confusion and conflict adding their business needs respect to their clients or else they will lose the children who are their customers in case they continue with misbehaving Infront of their customers with funny exchanges
