Nabakooba revealed that her ministry is undertaking plans to deregister all fake surveyors, architects, planners among others.
“They come pretending that they are in those different professions yet they have never attended school. I intend to end that practice within the lands ministry “.
The Minister thanked the Uganda Society of Architects for organizing the sports gala affirming that sports is a great way to network, reflect and keep healthy as people continue to serve the great country.
She lauded the body for attracting different professionals in different fields who are partners with the ministry of lands.
