Addressing a press conference at UPC headquarters in Kampala today, Otunu added that the people of Amuru district are ready to fight tooth and nail for their land and not offer it to “Museveni’s sweet heart investors who have got no money to invest but rather just pause around with empty briefcases wanting to take the citizens’ land freely.”

He added that the Amuru people are interested in development but from genuine investors with whom they shall freely discuss the terms and conditions of developing their land stipulating the percentage share.

Otunnu further said Museveni should stop claiming that the land in Amuro district is idle and empty, adding the residents have a designed way of using their land as part of the land is for cultivation, for grazing, for hunting and the rest for human settlement.

He said that the 1995 constitution gives Museveni no right and authority to assign any land to anyone and therefore he has no land to assign to Madivani for sugar cane growing.

On the other hand, Otunu has showed dismay over what was done to him over the weekend during an interview program on Rupiny radio station a New Vision FM station.

Otunnu said that he was invited over time by the program coordinator for an interview and he decided to go for the program which runs from 7:00 pm to 9:00pm.

The UPC leader said the program had smoothly run for just 15 minutes but unfortunately the studios were stormed by the station manager, a one Monica, who claimed that she was ordered from above to stop it “if we are to discuss land grabbing issues or else discuss other issues.”

“When I insisted on discussing land grabbing issues, I together with my colleagues, were forced out of the studio by the manager.”
