Amolatar District Police have thwarted a demonstration organized by locals in the Namasale area of Amolatar District. The protest was in response to allegations made by Miss Katushabe Juliet, an alleged administrator of an estate believed to belong to the late Kawaki Nafutali, a former resident of Bungu cell in Namasale Town Council, Amolatar District.
Miss Katushabe claims to be the owner of the land, equivalent to 100 acres which was allegedly occupied by Mr. Okello Moses from Bungu cell.
The disputed land is said to have remained vacant since the tribal conflict in 1979. Through her legal representation, Eyotr & Co. Advocates located on Makerere Hill Road, Mirembe House 3rd floor, she wrote to the chairperson of Bungu cell, requesting a meeting with the community members occupying the land to engage in a dialogue.
However, this proposal did not sit well with the local residents, leading them to organize a protest while awaiting the arrival of Miss Katushabe Juliet whom they accuse of being a land grabber.
Upon receiving the information, the District Police Commander (DPC) of Amolatar and his team responded to the situation to calm down the agitated locals by engaging with community leaders.
The complainant and her lawyer were warned against visiting the site and were advised to pursue legal recourse through the appropriate courts of law.
