Lyantonde RDC, Uganda Kolping Society In Land Row

Ben Ruberantware, the Lyantonde deputy Resident District Commissioner, is locked up in a land row with Uganda Kolping Society in Hoima.

Both of them claim ownership of a plot of land in Kijungu, a prime area in Hoima municipality.

The plot under contention measures about one-fifth of a hectare and is located on plot 40 on Mandela road.

It all started about two weeks ago when Uganda Kolping Society set out to begin construction on the contested plot.

According to Aloysius Mugasa, the Uganda Kolping society executive director, his workers at the site were arrested and detained at Hoima police station purportedly on the orders of the deputy RDC, who accused them of trespassing on his land.

But Mugasa maintains the plot belongs to the society and accuses the Ruberantware of using his position to grab the society's land.
