The Minister of Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Judith Nabakooba has called up on Ugandans to wake up from sleep and engage in government projects that aim to kick poverty out of Uganda.

Nabakooba says the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) government is very committed to save it’s people from poverty but this can only be achieved through taking part in projects that bring money to alleviate poverty in the long run.

The Honorable minister revealed all these in Kassanda district at the 37th Anniversary celebrations of the NRM.  

She noted that Kassanda people have demonstrated massive support to NRM which they have hugely been voting for. As a result, she promised that government will continue to do whatever it takes to work with them in realizing the national targets in wealth creation through programs like Parish Development Model (PDM). 


Nabakooba noted,”As you may be aware, currently our Excellency the President is pushing for improving livelihoods through the critical pillars. His Excellency is calling upon us to focus on the critical areas of development and wealth, Mass Education, stamping out corruption and sectarianism especially in government offices and environment.”

Meanwhile, the Lands Minister laid a wreath at a monument at Bukuya SS put up in the 80s in memory of the liberators and their sacrifice, visited Kijuna Health Centre 3 and Bukuya Health Centre 4 which is under construction by UPDF Engineering brigade.

While at the health facility, she also launched the measles vaccination for Kassanda District which had failed to kick off because of the Ebola lockdown. The vaccination exercise that is going to last for five days targets children aged 0 to five years of age.

Nabakooba who was made aware that the PDM money was still at parish accounts advised locals to seek information on how target households can access it, urging them to monitor the Shs2.8bn government allocated to the district for PDM.

In her docket as lands minister, she reminded people about their efforts to guard against illegal land evictions. She said this is a campaign that they have been working on for some time now.

According to Nabakooba, in government’s efforts to create wealth and end poverty, all people must have access to land, feel protected and safe to utilize it, otherwise their efforts will not be realized.

She called upon people to respect each other’s right to own land and always follow the law whenever there is an issue that needs to be addressed.

“I want to thank the RDCs and the security committees for your tireless efforts against illegal evictions. As government, we have studied the problem of dual ownership. Most of these illegal evictions happen because of the crisis between land lords and bibanja owners,” she said.

The minister added that they therefore decided to eliminate this problem by paying land lords and enabling bibanja owners to get land titles.

“We are working with our development partners such as GIZ and soon this program will be starting here as well. We are going to embark on training duty bearers on matters of land management and conflict resolution. We are aware of the issues in Kitumbi, Kamusenene, and we are pursuing efforts to settle your land ownership issues.”
