Kitagwenda: Lands Minister to protect Squatters from eviction.

The minister of lands, housing and urban development, Hon. Judith Nabakooba has promised to protect squatters in Kitagwenda district from eviction.

In a meeting that took place on Wednesday at the Catholic Church in Katoogo trading centre,  Katoogo, Nyabihoko parish, in Kitagwenda district, Nabakooba told the people of Nyabihoko Parish, Kitagwenda district, popularly known as Bonafide (squatters) on the land, that the government will help them to acquire their land legally after a thorough investigation of the said area.

The Minister for Lands, housing and urban development Hon Judith Nabakooba addressing the residents of Nyabihoko, Kitagwenda district on Wednesday.

This was after dwellers raised concerns on the land in question saying a team from Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS) came to do the mapping.

In fear of implementation of an earlier received eviction notice, the squatters called upon government to protect them from getting evicted from the land they have lived on for a long time.

Baheebwa Longine Byagagaire, the RDC Kitagwenda, revealed that he led a team that stopped the mapping from happening until the people are informed on why they are in the area and this was done.

Baheebwa noted that although the said owner of the land, a one Kobani has papers, she does not know where her land starts and ends.

Ismail Mushemeza, the LC V Chairman Kitagwenda district urged the area residents to endeavor to keep records of their landholdings as government finds a lasting solution to the land problems in the area.

After listening to their concerns, Nabakooba promised the squatters that a thorough investigation on the matter will be conducted for about two months and in early February 2023, a final report will be issued to pave a way forward for the squatters.
