Amolatar Residents Rally in Protest against Land Ownership Dispute

By Senior Reporter

AMOLATAR – Amolatar District Police have successfully intervened to prevent an unauthorized demonstration orchestrated by local residents in the Namasale area of Amolatar District.

 

The demonstration arose in response to allegations made by Katushabe Juliet, an estate administrator claiming ownership of land previously belonging to the late Kawaki Nafutali, a former resident of Bungu Cell in Namasale Town Council, Amolatar District.

 

Katushabe alleged that Okello Moses from Bungu Cell occupied the disputed 100-acre land, which has remained vacant since a tribal conflict in 1979. In an attempt to resolve the issue, Katushabe, through her legal representatives, Eyotr & Co. Advocates located on Makerere Hill Road, Mirembe House 3rd floor, sent a letter to the chairperson of Bungu Cell, requesting a meeting with the community members occupying the land to engage in dialogue.

However, the local residents reacted unfavorably to the proposal, resulting in an unlawful protest while awaiting the arrival of Katushabe Juliet and her lawyer.

 

Upon receiving the information, SP Patrick Jimmy Okema, the North Kyoga Police Spokesperson, stated that the District Police Commander (DPC) of Amolatar and his team promptly responded to the situation. They successfully pacified the agitated locals by engaging with community leaders.

 

SP Okema further mentioned that both the complainant and her lawyer were cautioned against visiting the disputed site and were advised to seek legal recourse through the appropriate courts of law.
