The Battle For Land: A Tale Of Betrayal And Eviction

Jamira Namusera, a 70-year-old woman who has spent her entire life in the village of Bujimba, Namayumba sub-county, Wakiso District, faces an unexpected threat to her ancestral land.

However the peaceful life of Jamira and her husband, Pascal, took a turn when a land dealer, whose identity remains concealed, allegedly demarcated and sold a significant portion of their cherished five-acre estate, without any consent or engagement.

The loss of livelihood

Heartbroken and distraught, Jamira recounts the devastating impact of the land encroachment. The demarcation included her eucalyptus trees, coffee plants, and even her beloved maize field, robbing her of her livelihood.

Jamira’s plight is not an isolated incident. The villages of Bujimba, Ngondwe, Busamba-Kinyika, Gayaza, and Kanziro are all threatened by eviction, despite a court order halting transactions on the disputed waterless surface.

Violence and desperation

John Wanito, another resident affected by the land dealer’s actions, shares his harrowing experience of losing an acre of his waterless surface and being violently prevented from accessing his crops. The desperation and injustice faced by the community are palpable.

During a thorough exploration of the area, our  reporters witnessed the demarcations and creation of plots on people’s lands in Bujimba and Ngondwe.

The presence of markets and indications of new roads being constructed through gardens further reveal the land dealer’s sinister intentions.

However residents claim that the land dealer has deceived them by selling the two acres she legitimately purchased in Ngondwe to a property agency, falsely claiming ownership of a larger portion. The web of deceit grows thicker as the battle for waterless surface intensifies.
