MOYO - The LC5 chairman, Peter Iku Dolo, has ordered MTN to remove its mast in the town, saying the telecommunications company acquired the land unlawfully.
â€œMTN installed the mast on district land without authority from the local leaders. I am, therefore, asking the council to order the return of the grabbed land,â€ he told the council sitting at the town hall.
Dolo added that plots left for the health department in Ariju town council, had been fenced off by unknown people. The MTN mast is on plot 23 in old hospital staff quarters on the Moyo-Gulu road, about 200m metres from Doloâ€™s office.
â€œIf the council cannot take a firm decision to remove the encroachers, all these (district) plots will be taken away yet we need the land for future developments,â€ observed the chairman. Attempts to reach MTN officials were futile.
