Residents and vendors hurled insults and curses as ull dozers and caterpillars erased their property worth billions of shillings this morning.

Tractors in action

Chimpreports has reliably been informed that the said piece of land belongs to Boost Investments owned by one Bosco Muwonge who earlier in January also evicted the Spidika Foundation from the same land.

KCCA and Kwiz Honest Auctioneers said tenants were illegally occupying the said piece of land although majority of them claim that they were never compensated.

Police deployed heavily

In letter dated 2011 and seen by Chimpreports, the KCCA Acting Physical Planning Officer, Joseph Semambo, wrote to the Uganda Police requesting full support in evicting residents of Muzaana and Bwanika zones.

It was initially meant to reduce on the traffic flow in Kisenyi and the neighboring areas.

Some of the residents and tenants who had gone to High Court to seek redress include; Miss Nalubega, Alifunsi Kweyamba, Yusuf Kakande, Tebirungi, Nanyonjo and Ali Bwanika.

Residents picking up pieces

The police, commanded by Sam Omala, said they were implementing the High Court order that was issued to them in 2012.

The said piece of land in question, according to Kwiz Honest Auctioneers and court bailiffs who led the eviction, was formally a public road and KCCA was again clearing the boundaries for reconstruction.
