Residents at risk of losing land due to family wrangles
About 3000 residents from Kabende Village in Kiyuuni Sub County, Mubende District have called for government intervention into the land matters in their area after being threatened with an eviction by absentee land lord.
The land under contention was titled in 1918 in the name of Rockie Lumonde but after his death in 2000, the owner ship was transferred to Rev Fr Kasole who has since died living the land in the hands Edward Semaganda- grandson to Rockie Lumonde.
The Bibanja holders on this land yesterday told an LC3 court chaired by Kiyuuni Sub County Chairman Aloysius Byamunugu that Semanda had fenced off the land hence stopped them from carrying any activity on the property.
After the residents submitting their complaints, forcing Ssemaganda to produce evidence that he is the owner of the land which he failed, this ended up causing violence at the court.
Aloysius Byamunugu, the chairperson LC111Kiyuuni Sub County and Jude Irumba the NRM sub county chairperson have warned Edward Ssemaganda against the illegal eviction saying he should follow right procedures to avoid contention.
