A landlord has been lynched in Kayunga over a land dispute.

The incident occurred at Nakabango in Namaliiri Parish, Kayonza Sub County in Kayunga district.

Robert Wafula, 49, who has been the parish councillor, owned a piece of land in the area and residents suspected that he had plans to sell it off to a businessman Peter Kivumbi for extension of his farm.

Residents surrounded and beat up Wafula as he inspected their main gardens.

The area LC1 chairperson Livingstone Kyaterekera said that there have been wrangles over the land between Wafula and the family of the late Samson Kaweke with each claiming to be the rightful owner of the land.

The OC Kayonza Police Station, Benjamin Omasete, warned residents against mob justice saying Police has started investigations to arrest whoever participated in Wafula's killing.

The body was taken to Kayunga Hospital for a post-mortem.
