Mbale leaders complained to the Bamugemeirire Commission.

Political leaders from Mbale district want the land  occupied by the late Semei Kakungulu's family retruned to the Bamasaaba.

Kakungulu was a Buganda Kingdom chief who helped colonialists administer their rul in the eastern region.

Leaders led by the Mbale district  chairperson, Bernard Mujaasi, said the colonialists had allocated huge chunks of land to Kakungulu as a token of appreciation, which was unfair to them.

They now want the government to buy off Kakungulu's family and return the land to the natives.

They were appearing before justice Catherine Bamugemeirire's Land Inquiry Commission in Mbale.
