LAND AMENDMENT | MUSEVENI IN TESO

President Yoweri Museveni has assured the people of Teso that no one can grab their land. The President said all land ownership matters in Uganda were clearly resolved by the 1995 Constitution.

Speaking at Vision Group's Etop radio in Soroti Municipality on Sunday evening, Museveni said the current proposed land amendment is to counter the selfish thieves who have been using weaknesses within the law on compensation to fraudulently robe the country and also those who frustrate government programmes.

The President said those who are speaking against the proposed land amendment are the enemies of Uganda. He described them as greedy.

"Some of the people are acting out of greed and corruption and know that once the law is amended, they will not be able to cheat the country through illicit compensation claims," said the president.

The President explained that the current law is good and protects land owners, but it is not sufficient on compensation. He said the Government is only interested in land for developmental projects, such opening up of better roads, electricity, building schools and hospitals to benefit the locals.

"I want construct you the people of Teso good roads, but just few of you are delaying some of these projects, which would have started already," he said.

He also challenged the NRM carders across Teso region to sensitise the local community on the importance of the proposed land amendment.

"Some of you have allowed the Opposition to peddle lies about this. Go and talk to my people," the President reiterated.

He said: "The NRM government will continue providing and delivering good services to people of Uganda."

Vance Omome, the deputy Prime Minister of the Iteso Cultural Union (ICU) applauded the president for senstising the public about the proposed land amendment.

"Opposition politicians have been taking advantage of this proposed amendment to cause conflict," said Omome.
