Residents of Buikwe County south are set to sue government over its failure to compensate them for their lost land in a road constriction project.
According to the area MP Lulume Bayigga government told the residents to vacate their homes and properties in favor of Kyetume-Katosi and Nkokonjeru –Kisoga Nyenga road construction but until now nothing has been done.
“We have resorted to sue government because it has failed both to compensate people, and construct the roads. We have collected over 326 signatures from the residents affected and we are ready to sue government .” Dr Lulume noted
The residents are filling their case through Ambrose and company Advocates
“It’s now 5 years since parliament approved the budget of constructing our roads but nothing has been done, apart from light grading the 74km roads.” He added
