2:19pm: President Museveni, is to brief the media on Tuesday afternoon at his country home in Rwakitura to discuss the rampant land grabbing and evictions in the country.


Speaking to journalists at Uganda Media Centre on Monday, the Minister of Land, Housing and Urban Development, Daudi Migereko said the president intends to “explain to the country the government’s position on the rampant issue of land grabbing.”


The President is expected to unleash the new government policy which will mandate investors and land lords selling their land to produce a resettlement action plan in instances where evictions are expected.



According to Migereko, this new policy is in line with Government’s rural transformation plans in which resettlement plans should clearly show where the displaced people are expected to resettle and their possible sources of revenue in the new areas.
