THE Vice-President, Prof. Gilbert Bukenya, has criticised Baganda MPs for opposing the proposed Land Bill, saying they were sowing seeds of discord among Ugandans.
â€œThey go to ebimeeza (radio talk-shows) telling people ettaka ligenda, balitwaala (land is being grabbed). Whose land has been grabbed?â€ Bukenya asked.
â€œI was born and grew up in a kibanja (tenant) setting, but we were never evicted because my parents paid obusuulu to our landlord. We lived happily. This is the kind of existence we want to restore,â€ Bukenya said.
Addressing Mukono district leaders during a mobilisation trail for the Bona Bagaggawale (prosperity-for-all) programme on Friday, Bukenya said similar talks had surrounded the 9,000sq.miles demanded by the Mengo establishment.
The Vice-President urged Buganda kingdom to identify the land and follow proper channels to repose it.
Trade minister Janat Mukwaya urged Ugandans to embrace the prosperity-for-all project to fight poverty in households.
