President Museveni’s ban on land eviction has began to bite, and the first culprit is a Mukono landlord whose poles and wire fencing have been uprooted by angry villagers.
The landlord identified as john Musisi fenced off Mzee Merabu Nabisunsa’s kibanja, with the intention of kicking her out and selling it to M/S Mega Foam Industries, an Asian foam mattress industry in the neighbourhood.
The State Minister for Youth and Children Affairs Ronald Kibuule who is also the area MP, organised villagers who, under protection of the district security operatives, uprooted the illegal fencing.
Kibuule said the operation to harmonise land title holders sanctioned by President Museveni recently is to cover the entire country, and that it will spare nobody.
Earlier, 75-year Merabu Nabisunsa had complained that although she has been allowed to harvest her food, she has access since it has been fenced off alongside the graveyard of her dead kinsfolk.
The exercise was overseen by the District Police Commander Alfred Bangambaki, the Depouty RDC Martin Mugabi, the CMI sector commander
Maj. Moses Segujja, the DISO Edmond Kamanyirem the District Council speaker James Kunobwa, and area NRM leaders.
