Three family members in Kikuube district are in police custody for attempting to evict an elderly woman from her ancestral land. The suspects are Joseph Kasoma, Robert Kanago and their father Felix Nyabwongo, all residents of Kakooge village in Kigaaya Westward in Buhimba town council.  

The three family members are feuding with Joyce Bahuma,95, a resident of the same area over seven acres of land. Bahuma acquired the contested land in the 1950s, where she has spent her entire life. According to Bahuma, she legally acquired the land together with her late and wonders why the three are claiming it now.

It is alleged that the three family members have been threatening Bahuma with forceful eviction for the past three years. This prompted her to seek help from the Kikuube Resident commissioner-RDC, Amlan Tumusiime.

On Tuesday evening, Tumusiime ordered the arrest of the three family members. According to Amlan, it is unfortunate that the suspects have severally threatened the life of the old woman over a piece of land she has occupied since the 1950s.
