BULIISA LC1 CHAIRPERSONS FACE ARREST OVER MISUSE OF STAMPS

By Pascal Onega

BULIISA: The Buliisa Resident District Commissioner {RDC} Stephen Byaruhanga Mfashingabo has threatened to arrest the village chairpersons over misusing their office stamps.

According to Mfashingabo, some area chairpersons are victims of issuing stamps in land transactions before being approved by family members, hence increasing land conflicts in the district.

‘’Some area chairpersons are victims of issuing stamps in land transactions before being approved by family members, hence increasing land conflicts in the district,’’ he says.

He said several land conflicts in the district have been reported blaming the area chairpersons over issuing stamps without consent of family members. Mfashingabo has therefore vowed to arrest the area chairpersons who will be caught misusing the stamps.

‘’We shall not sit a side and watch when there are increasing cases of land conflicts in the district, we shall arrest the area chairpersons who will misuse the stamps,’’ he said.

According to Mr. Lukumu Fred the Buliisa district LCV Chairperson, there is increased land conflicts in the oil rich Buliisa district due to failure to bear truth.

‘’There is increased land conflicts in the oil rich district due to failure to bear truth,’’ he said.

Lukumu also attributes the increased land conflicts to the discovery of oil in the region. ‘’We didn’t have land conflict issues in Buliisa, until oil was discovered,’’ he asserted.

While launching the Parish Development Model recently in Buliisa district, Rt. Hon. Robinah Nabbanja the Prime Minister of the Republic of Uganda instructed the Buliisa District Police Commander {DPC} and the Resident District Commissioner {RDC} not to honor any court order concerning evictions of residents on their land.

Nabbanja’s instructions followed a report presented by the district chairperson Mr. Lukumu Fred requesting the prime minister’s intervention into land conflicts in the oil rich Buliisa district.

Responding to the request, the prime minister said since it is the district land board that is authorized for titling the lands, she urged the Buliisa district LCV boss to revise the mess in the district land board.

She also threatened to dismiss the area land board if they are so corrupt, saying issues of land conflicts are rampant in Buliisa due to the mess by the district land boards.

‘’I will dismiss the land board members if they are so corrupt, the issue of land conflicts is rampant in Buliisa caused by the mess in the district land board,’’ Nabbanja said.
