He said that leaders including Prime Minister Dr .Ruhakana Rugunda, former Kabarole District boss Michael Mugisa and former Burahya County Legislator Col.Steven Basaliza came and toured the land  and promised to do something but didn’t.

Mbuli complained that they are unable to engage in agriculture production and that their children have failed to access social services like schools, hospitals and food.

He said after the survey the boundaries were marked, and made clear to the locals during a stakeholders meeting comprising the RDC, district chairman and sub county officials with the affected residents.
