The Kikuube district Resident District Commissioner Amulan Tumusiime has halted the surveying of a contested piece of land in Buhimba sub-county, Kikuube.
Over 200 residnets from five villages of Kizinga main, Kizinga west, Rwomubazi, Kigarama and Kyabahesi are bickering with Edward Fredrick John Nyakana over the land on plot 8 Bugahya and block 19 Buswekera.
The conflict started after Nyakana started surveying the land one month ago using a court order that had been issued by the Hoima Chief Magistrate’s court dated 9th February, 2021.
But, the residents are contesting the boundary opening exercise on grounds that the court order was meant to be used to open land boundaries for land in Buswekera village in Hoima city and not their villages.
During a crisis meeting held in Kizinga village that was graced by the Kikuube district security team and residents, the RDC called off the surveying exercise until the matter is investigated.
He promised to talk the Hoima district surveyor who is leading the exercise and the tycoon about the issue and warned security in the area against getting involved in the matter.
