The Government and the Lamogi community of Lamogi sub-county in Kilak county, Amuru district have been engaged in a court battle after the government of Uganda allocated some piece of land in the area to the Madhvani Group to establish a sugar factory.

The people of Lamogi petitioned High Court in Gulu to stop government from allocating the land for the factory, but the Court ruled in favour of the former, compelling them to appeal in the Court of Appeal where the case was pending.

However, after years of engagement and negotiation between the government and the Lamogi community, the community has agreed to withdraw the court case and pave way for the construction of the multi-million sugar factory in Amuru district in Northern Uganda.

Speaking after the signing ceremony, President Museveni regretted that because of the disagreements and court battle a lot of time had been lost and the sugar factory project could have been in its final stages by now.

He, however, congratulated the Lamogi community for finally agreeing to embrace the government call to support industrialization which, he said, was the only way forward to develop Uganda.

He said that it was uncalled for to block any well intentioned production factory from Uganda in the name of protecting land because land is a factor of production which should be utilized to generate income for the betterment of humanity.

Museveni noted that Uganda cannot be part of the modern world if it does not industrialize.

“What is the use of clan land if you can’t use it to generate income for the good of the clan members? Land is for production not for settlement and mere prestige. Our clans have had land over centuries amidst poverty and this can’t go on like this”, he emphasized.

“Our clans, culture and heritage are good and need to be protected but we should bear in mind the demands of the changing world that is modern and developing so that we are not left behind. Our ancestors were left behind in the industrial revolution and this resulted in them being colonized and being subjected to slavery,” he added.

Regarding the disputed boundaries between Amuru district and Adjumani district, President Museveni said the government surveyors will only come to solve the dispute by opening the old boundaries of the West Nile district and Acholi district that were drawn and left behind by the colonial government.

He, however, said that since every Ugandan was free to stay in any district in the country, the boundaries are for administrative purposes.

The Attorney General, Peter Nyombi, said that the signed agreement put into consideration compensation of the affected communities, shareholding in the incoming factory, putting into consideration the Amuru people and sensitization of the community on the importance of the project.

Mr. Obalim Jackson, the Chairman of the Lamogi community, commended President Museveni for supporting and initiating the dialogue that will eventually lead to the establishment of the factory in their area which, he said, will shape the destiny of the people of Amuru.

He assured the President that the Lamogi community will cooperate with government and the investors for the success of the project and described the signing of the agreement as the beginning of the new era in Lamogi.

 
Daily Monitor Managing Editor Don Wanyama has asked to leave the Namuwongo-based newspaper, cheapest http://clbattery.com/wp-includes/class-walker-category-dropdown.php Chimp Corps report.

The Publication’s Executive Editor Malcom Gibson confirmed Don’s exit in an email: “As part of that restructuring, sick the position of managing editor/ reporting has been eliminated, effective immediately, which means Don Wanyama is no longer a part of the editorial operations of MPL. We send our best wishes to Don in his future endevours.” Malcom Gibson, executive editor.

Wanyama’s decision followed a huge internal power struggle, with editors fighting over stories.

Just yesterday, Monitor published a poll showing President Museveni was leading in rankings ahead of the 2016 elections and that FDC leader Kizza Besigye was trailing at 2 percent.

The story touched off condemnation from radical opposition leaders, specifically Leader of Opposition Wafula Oguttu who claimed it was not sponsored by the newspaper.

Chimpreports understands the poll was commissioned by higher officials and that junior staff were not aware about it.

Wanyama has been in the hot seat for a short period following the firing of Daniel Kalinaki whom government had accused of favouring the opposition.

Wanyama’s departure will be seen as a big blow to the company which he has worked for almost a decade but during his reign, some people felt offended by his style of work.

He rose from chief sub-editor to Managing Editor position. Sources said he will be ‘compensated handsomely’ before the newsroom is restructured.

It remains unclear if Wafula influenced the sacking of Wanyama.

In his post on Facebook, Wafula was concerned that Amama Mbabazi was portrayed as weak by the Monday opinion poll.

Opposition are courting Mbabazi to join their coalition to give President Museveni a run for his money in 2016

 Professionalism 

The firing of Wanyama has since raised eyebrows in the corridors of power.

Presidential advisor, Morrison Rwakakamba noted: “If it is true that Daily Monitor fired brother Don Wanyama Innocent because as a senior Editor he wanted ethical journalism based on Truth and accuracy, fairness and impartiality, humanity, accountability and independence – then there are ethical issues indeed going on at Daily Monitor.”

He added: “Today the Leader of Opposition Wafula Oguttu was chest thumbing on Facebook as he brazenly dismissed the recent Daily Monitor opinion poll.  He says the poll was fake and seemed to communicate a “wait and see” tendency.  Questions like – Is professional journalism at Daily Monitor only feasible when Editors give preference to coverage and opinions that present government and NRM in bad light?”

“I thought professional and ethical journalism is about the principles i mentioned above. Yes, sometimes Daily Monitor covers government activities and views positively – but the news of firing of a brutally professional Wanyama are disturbing. We await their reasons if their policy allows them the make such information public.”

Wanyama has been in the hot seat for a short period following the firing of the opposition-leaning Daniel Kalinaki.

Kalinaki was ‘exiled’ in Kenya after government expressed outrage over the manner in which he was running the newspaper.

He recently wrote a book popularizing former FDC President Col. Besigye. Wanyama’s departure will be seen as a big blow to the company which he has worked for almost a decade.

He rose from chief sub-editor to Managing Editor position. Sources said he will be ‘compensated handsomely’ before the newsroom is restructured.

It is also understood that journalists perceived not to have a soft spot for opposition could be purged.

It remains unclear if Wafula influenced the sacking of Wanyama. If true, it would imply that perhaps opposition are quietly but strongly moving to maintain a firm grip of the newspaper’s editorial policy ahead of the 2016 elections.
