THIS WEEK: Museveni resumes land talk shows
Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Amidst debate on amending article 102 (b) of the constitution to remove presidential term limit, president Yoweri Museveni on Oct. 01 resumed his campaign which according to observers is about an equally controversial amendment of land law to allow government to compulsorily acquire private land for infrastructural development and investment. He was hosted at a soroti radio station where he answered the land queries affecting the masses before moving to Serere, both in Eastern Uganda. While there, he blamed RDCs for not sensitizing masses enough about land.
Museveni has told journalists that he resolved to embark on sensitization of masses on land issues
after realizing that many are misinformed but continue to be fed on falsehoods by members of the opposition who tell them that government wants to grab people’s land.
In the country wide campaign started last month, the president has been hosted on radio stations in Western, Central and southern regions of the country.
