Uganda Radio Network (URN) has learned that in a meeting which was convened at this spiritual tourism site on August 7, 2019 to discuss its planned development, a report was presented that 10 acres had been grabbed out of the 100.
It’s suspected that the land was grabbed by the neighbors who are the traditional herbalists.
The meeting resolved that they will with the aid of a surveyor, fight to regain the lost piece.
Nabos Iguru, one of the affected persons told Uganda Radio Network that Kaliisa acquired a title for the land in 2019 without the consent of residents, which he wants to use to evict them. According to Iguru, Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom offered the contested piece of land to residents and wonders how Kaliisa came to acquire the title without their consent or that of the kingdom.
Newly appointed RDC Justine Mbabazi for Wakiso says that in the two weeks she has so far spent in the same office she is overwhelmed by complaints related to land grabbing caused by the people she referred to as mafias.
According to Kalembe, due to land grabbing in Uganda, people cannot produce goods and contribute to the economy, have collateral to business or merge with others who have the human and financial capital to start up small firms in Uganda.
“There are many people in Buganda who have been defrauded in cryptocurrency schemes. I want to tell you that anything that promises you abnormal profits in a very short period of time is always a hoax. You must avoid such deals,” Mayiga said. He added that rich people don’t make their money in months but rather years of hard work.
