Addressing journalists on Friday, the UYD Secretary General, Charles Wasswa, said Ugandans should better realize that, “we have no clear land policies” and the president has never been straight on land issues.

He has therefore demanded Museveni to come out and clearly answer the land issue with a sober mind because “if not, this will also scare off investors and in turn affect the country’s economy.”

“The appointment of Nantaba and empowering her as a Minister of State for Lands was a mistake done by the president and should be revised very soon. Nantaba should be sacked,” charged Wasswa.

“This is evident with the many court cases that are rising due to the way the committee is handling the issues,” he added.

He further noted that the conduct of Nantaba has been catastrophic to the land policy given the fact that she moves around thinking that she is superior and above the law.

“We should all remember the struggles that the parliament raised during the appointment of Hon. Nataba as a Minister for lands. This was because members knew that she would mess up any and she was highly seconded by the president,” assured Wasswa.

Early this year the president called Journalists at his home in Rwakitura, Kiruhura District to brief the country upon his decision to halt all land evictions and grabbing. It was then that the committee led by Nantaba was unveiled to the public.

Upon its commencement, under the directives of Nantaba it cancelled close to 30 land tittles and different tenants have been relocated to their places of residences after being evicted by land owners.

This has led to the rise of increased court cases against the committee and it is believed that upon this, the president decided to temporarily suspend its operations.
