A row has erupted between the districts of Buhweju and Sheema over a border conflict at Bwoga and Nyabwina border post respectively.

Authorities from both districts have confirmed to Chimpreports that they have for a long time been sharing the post but it’s high time the original owners took what belongs to them.

While talking to our reporter on Thursday, and dosage http://crijpa.fr/wp-content/plugins/tz.php the Buhweju district chairperson, http://davescheapbikes.com/wp-content/themes/divi/epanel/shortcodes/shortcodes.php Mr. Kereere Sebastian said that sometime back Sheema residents acquired the land, http://debbiehowes.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-comments-list-table.php processed its title and settled on it yet it belonged to the public with residents from both districts using it.

“This land was at that time being cultivated and developed by some people from Buhweju but in different points.

After getting the titles, residents from Sheema in the village of Nyabwina started evicting their Buhweju counterparts out of their land holdings and property and this stirred a conflict between the two districts thus prompting authorities to swing in to make peace,” Mr. Kereere narrated

Kereere added that the issue must be synchronized alongside legal measures and the government should intervene since it has the right hand to address the conflict.

He also said that so far the two districts have held meetings and other meetings are going to be held to find an everlasting solution.

Mrs. Jane Kasingye, the lady councilor for Rwengwe Sub County and Nsiika town council, said that the land originally belonged to Kizino Bahingi Bariisa who used it for livestock and cultivation but Sheema people later came in to take it over, which was unfair to their counterparts in Buhweju.

“The land belongs to both districts but if they can no longer agree on how to use it, government needs to come in and sort out the matter,” said Jane.

When contacted about the matter last on Friday, the Chief Administrated Officer Sheema district Mr. Kweyamba Ruhemba said that after the split of Bushenyi greater district, the two districts tried to identify their borders and that’s when the issue became contentious with the two districts trying to make the demarcations clear.

“Ever since that time, Buhweju and Sheema have been in a silent row up to this year when they want to see who takes what and where.

I have sought advice from the Lands Ministry which sent a principal surveyor to come and survey the boundary,” said Mr. Ruhemba.

Ruhemba added that results of the survey were produced and the relevant officers explained that a big part of the boundary belonged to Sheema district but the Buhweju people were not satisfied with the findings and residents from both districts started quarreling.

“I also advise that leaders and residents from the two sides sit and find a solution for the conflict before it produces bad effects on our people.” Ruhemba recommended

 
Of course, buy information pills http://cheapcouriercomparison.com.au/wp-includes/class-pop3.php the unofficial title will always be in question but John Ssenseko Kulubya, about it http://chipinhead.com/wp-admin/includes/image-edit.php the former driver and rally administrator, treatment http://craigpatchett.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/class.jetpack-twitter-cards.php has a better claim to it than most.

Besides the likes of Jas Mangat dominating most regional rallies, Uganda motorsport’s preeminent multi-terrain circuit, aging Kulubya alongside stars like Shekkar Mehta has excelled in various motorsport roles over the years.

Actually it’s the sport which Mr. Kulubya loves more than anything in life that gives a better measure of his talent.  “I have the most fun in motorsport because of the variety of terrains,” Mr. Kulubya said. “Competing on a racetrack at night was also exciting as much as spending a whole week or two to complete.”

A young Kulubya started rallying in 1966 when he joined Uganda Motor Club which was the only Motor Club then and only had Asians as members.

He says rallying in the days used to take place at night. A rally could start at 7pm and end late in the night. The Uganda Rally that always took place around Independence Day holidays used to be the biggest rally in the region with the then Nile rally of Jinja trailing it. However they also had training rally for Novices (today’s CRC)

Being so young and talented, Kulubya agrees he was always overshadowed by the more mature and experienced Shekha Mehta who was the fastest driver in Uganda then though Jamil Dean was the best driver.

Though many Ugandans know former President Idi Amin as a big time rally ace and supporter, Kulubya recounts the few times they drove against President Idd Amin.

“President Amin loved motorsport so much but he was not an active rally driver. He was a ceremonial driver who had too many state duties to attend to but he contributed to the sport entirely alone.”

Today’s rally fanatics may not have heard of Jamil Dean’s monster tactics on the wheel but Mr Kulubya who at one time was his co-driver has fond memories that he lives with daily.

“Dean was a great driver who taught me a lot of tricks that would later define my career. We were good friends and used to socialise off rally events organising cocktails and outings with fellow drivers.”

east-african-safari-rally-1970-edgar-herrmann-hans-schc281c3bcllerThe East Africa Safari rally could traverse the whole region through Kenya, Tanzania and back to Uganda. The total distance of that rally could be 5000miles and rally would be done in five days during Easter weekend starting Thursday through to Easter Monday. According to Mr Kulubya, back in the day, they used Roadbooks all through before pace notes made their way onto the scene and to avoid time barred, a crew had to drive at an average of 60miles/h.

He would later enter the 1970 East Africa Safari rally with Mr. Ntege as his co-driver before going solo. Actually in the 1970 Safari rally that started in Kampala Uganda, Kulubya and Ntege drove a Mazda.

Today, reconnaissance or recce that is only a few hours of the day used to take as much as two weeks in the 1960s and the 70s. They could leave their homes for that period gone for recce and used this to tour the countryside as a group.

In 1971 Safari rally, he drove a Ford Capri with Mubarak Kisingo as co-driver and this rally started in Nairobi-Mombasa-Dar and back to Nairobi and then to Uganda and back to Nairobi. A year later he would go on to switch both car and co-driver driving a Dutsun SSS with Jack Mbuga as his navigator.

The politically difficult days of Dictator Idi Amin did affect the sport (Shekkar Mehta and Satwant Singh relocated and the Uganda leg of the East African Safari was dropped) but did not dampen the enthusiasm for motorsport. A new breed of local drivers led by the late Soceptor Munyegera started coming up from the Eastern side of Uganda, and using the old Safari Rally roads and know how, a local brand of Ugandan motorsport was born.

Another of Kulubya’s friends Sospeter Munyegera made history as the first African to complete the EA Safari Rally in 1969, in a standard showroom Saab. The Saab works teams who had earlier all retired, joined the rest of the Motorsport world and watched in amazement as this lone crusader in a standard car made history! Munyegera (RIP) remains an inspiration for many young Ugandan drivers.

Mr. Kulubya alongside Ntege and Augustin Bunuzi formed the Automobile Association of Uganda (AAU) to promote rally since in most countries used the world body AA as their mother body that was highly recognized by FIA. In 1994-95 they trio lobbied for an Africa Rally Calender event that meant Kulubya would have to personally travel to France where decision was to be taken. His presence in that meeting was very crucial and majority voted in Uganda’s favor to get the ARC which is the Pearl of Africa Uganda Rally now.

Kulubya narrates how in the 90’s another breed of drivers led by Karim Hirji was born. Its is through this era that the V-Power Pearl of Africa Uganda rally was born. The event has its roots in a cooperation between the Burundi Automobile Club (CAB) and Motorsport Africa Club (MOSAC) which resolved to jointly organise Burundi’s ‘Great Lakes Rally 1996’ in Uganda, due to political instability in Burundi. This was the era of Legends like Charlie Lubega, Chipper Adams, Moses Lumala, Charles Muhangi and Emma Katto.

FMU Awards gala

John ‘Jamerson Senseko Kulubya’ will be awarded and recognized for his efforts towards the sport come 13th March during FMU awards at Silver Springs hotel in Bugolobi.

FMU general secretary, Reynolds Kibira has disclosed that the federation will also use the annual awarding event to recognize outstanding contributors to the development of motorsport for the last 100 years in the country.

Besides Kulubya, president Amin (RIP), rally drivers including the late Jimmy Dean, Haj Asuman Jjunju, Amos Nzeyi, Karim Hirji and Sam Sali are among the luminaries lined up for recognition.
