Residents of Bigina village, sick http://chemspec-api.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-themes-list-table.php south ward in Kisoro town council are stranded with a body of a 75 – year old man, view http://debbiehowes.com/wp-content/plugins/siteorigin-panels/widgets/basic.php whose burial has been blocked by Kisoro Town Council.

Yeremiya Ntamagezo died on Monday in a house where he has been living alone looking after land that belonged to Christine Zungu who resides outside Kisoro district.

Upon his death, http://communityartsprogram.org/wp-content/plugins/totaldonations/migla-timezone.php residents consulted the landlady inquiring on whether to bury the deceased on the land which the landlady accepted, but were later shocked on Wednesday afternoon while in the final burial preparations when Kisoro Town Council deployed police officers to intercept the ceremony on grounds that the land was in dispute.

The Council claims ownership of the land and that it is still subjected to litigation in High Court Mbarara.

Residents told our reporter that in 2013 Christine won the case over the land but Kisoro Town Council appealed to High court pending court declaration over who is the rightful owner.

It was a scene of drama when residents turned chaotic accusing Kisoro Town Council of mistreating the locals in the area although authorities revealed that the law must be followed.

By press time, two graves had been dug, one at the land in dispute and the other at the government cemetery, but the deceased was yet to be buried.

Prime Minister, stuff http://cosmeticluxus.com/wp-includes/class-wp-ajax-response.php Dr Ruhakana Rugunda on Wednesday met the Acting President of Zambia, store Dr Guy Scott, assuring him that as his country reels from the death of President Michael Chilufya Sata, Uganda supports a peaceful transition to the next presidency.

During the meeting at the Cabinet Office (Office of the Vice President), Lusaka, Dr Rugunda said the people of Uganda grieved with Zambians over the loss of their beloved Head of State.

He handed over President Yoweri Museveni’s condolence message.

“We will also remember President Michael Sata for the selfless efforts he has made since taking office of Head of State of Zambia in 2011, to improve the lives and welfare of the people of Zambia,” President Museveni’s message said.

“He stabilised the country through various government policies and programmes which included fighting corruption and improving the infrastructure of his country,” the message added, saying: “I believe the country shall be indebted to further his legacy.”

Dr Scott said his remaining job entailed ensuring effective transition and putting in place a new President within the next 80 days or so, adding that he would neither support nor campaign for anybody.

“The Central Committee will sit tomorrow (Thursday) to chart the way forward for a democratically elected candidate and the General Conference (of the ruling Patriotic Front) will select a presidential candidate,” Scott said.

“There cannot be a shortcut and that’s my legacy.”

Scott scoffed at those fronting him as a presidential aspirant, saying: “They are wasting their time.”

At least 5,000 people were said to be pestering for his candidature in the next presidential elections.

However, the Zambian Constitution does not allow him due to his parentage.
