Family clashes over property

Nsangi Municipality mayor Hajji Abdul Kiyimba on Friday clashed with court bailiffs and Nsangi Police who wanted to evict the descendants of the late Moses Kabugo Mukasa in Wakimese zone, Kyengera Town Council. The family is at odds with their late father's wife Babirye Bukirwa who obtained a court order imploring the children to vacate the property.

As the bailiffs began reading the order, residents led by Kiyimba set upon them at which point the Police withdrew from the operation.

The children led by Hassan Kato claim that Bukirwa did not have any children with their father and that before his death, he gave her a piece of land which she sold off.

Makerere students protest night raid

Makerere University students have protested the Thursday night raid by the security forces and demanded compensation for the injuries suffered.

The raid came amidst a standoff between students and the university management over the annual 15% tuition increment.

Between 8:00 pm and 11:00 pm, soldiers stormed halls of residences and dismantled door locks as they forced their way into the rooms. Students, some of whom were sleeping, were ruthlessly beaten and their TV screens and furniture shattered.

The students' guild body has vowed to drag the army to court for using excessive force and torture on their colleagues.
