Family of 11 face eviction from land they’ve stayed for over 75 years

Kamuli, (UG):- A total of eleven households of the same family in Bulyoko zone Buwanume parish Northern division in Kamuli Municipality live in fear after receiving death threats from people who claim to own their land where they have stayed for more than 75 years.

Steven Kisule, 75, says he was shocked to see unknown people in the area who came and destroyed his and other family member’s  properties like Houses, and banana plantations forcing them to evict from the land

Mr Kisule says he has lived on the land for more than 75 years and his grandfather, his father and other relatives have been on the land where they have been buried.

“I don’t know who is behind this, I have lived here for so long. I was born from here, this is where I buried my grandfather and my father who died in 2002 but am wondering why people are claiming my land”; Kisule told DailyExpress before asking police and other stakeholders to help him because his life is in danger

“I am requesting help and protection from police RDC and other stakeholders because these people who destroyed my properties may come back and take my life”; he said. 

Henry Buyinza, a son to Kisule said that they reported this matter to Kamuli central police but they were not helped. “We reported this matter to the police but we were not helped at all because they only arrested two people and later were released.”

By press time, efforts to reach the chairperson of this village about this matter were unfruitful as his known phone number was off.
