Land Conflicts: Nantaba Suspends Operations

website geneva;”>While addressing journalists in Kampala the committee chairperson and State Minister for Lands Hon. Aida Nantaba noted that their work had been made difficult by police, order courts of law and the land officers whom she accused of conniving with land grabbers to “terrorise the poor and tenants.”

“Moses Karangwa and his brother Augustine Tumwiine with the help of police evicted people from two sub counties and grabbed their land of three square miles in Kayunga District,’’ noted Nantaba.

She further stressed that Karangwa abducted four people who had refused the little amount he was paying them as compensation.

“He used the police to abduct Simon Sessanga, Nathan Luyombya, Kyakabale and another cattle keeper and put them in his car boot before taking them to an unidentified place,’’ noted Nantaba.

She further noted that many army officers are also involved in land grabbing and noted that these work with land officers to get fake land titles.

“30 land titles and files have gone missing in the Mukono district land offices and the land officers cannot account for this,” she exclaimed.

Nantaba therefore noted that all land officers are responsible for the lost land titles and files plus the fraudulent land transactions taking place.

She further expressed concern over the courts of law that have continued to issue orders against operations of her committee.

Nantaba therefore stressed that the DPP, police and courts of law in Kayunga have to ensure that Karangwa is arrested and the people he abducted are traced before the committee resumes its operations.
