Nakaseke bush war veteran loses gardens days after Museveni’s visit

  • On May 6, unknown people descended on the home of Mr Steven Mugambwa at Kimegere Village in Semuto Town Council and destroyed two acres of the maize crops, banana plantations, and the cassava gardens in what a section of local leaders and residents believe resulted from the unresolved land disputes in the area.

Both local leaders and residents in Nakaseke District have expressed shock at the level of impunity, and disrespect of the law in light of a series of attacks and destruction to property on disputed land just four days after President Museveni visited the area with a promise to have the problem quickly resolved.

“Many government officials have visited my home after the different attacks including the demolition of my house and destruction of the property promising to have the perpetrators arrested for their heinous acts, but the attacks continue. It is surprising that the suspects do not even respect the President of this country who visited the area last week and promised to have the problem resolved,” Mr Steven Mugambwa, the victim said in an interview on Sunday.
