Museveni Defends Proposed Land Amendments


President Yoweri Museveni has defended plans to amend the country’s land laws to allow forceful government acquisition of private land – arguing it will quicken the time taken by government development projects to kick off and also ensure that government is not cheated in the exercise of land compensations.
The President made the remarks last evening in a live phone-in radio talk in Gulu Municipality. The President is currently in Northern Uganda to sensitize the people in that area about the proposed Land Amendment Bill.
