Amolatar District Police have thwarted an unauthorized demonstration organized by locals in the Namasale area of Amolatar District. The protest was in response to allegations made by Miss Katushabe Juliet, an administrator of an estate believed to belong to the late Kawaki Nafutali, a former resident of Bungu Cell in Namasale Town Council, Amolatar District.

Upon receiving the information, the District Police Commander (DPC) of Amolatar and his team responded to the situation and managed to calm down the agitated locals by engaging with community leaders.

According to SP Patrick Jimmy Okema, the North Kyoga Police Region Public Relations Officer, Miss Katushabe claimed ownership of the land, equivalent to 100 acres, which was allegedly occupied by Mr. Okello Moses from Bungu Cell.

However, this proposal did not sit well with the local residents, leading them to organize an unlawful protest while awaiting the arrival of Miss Katushabe Juliet and her lawyer.

Okema adds that the disputed land has remained vacant since the tribal conflict in 1979, but through her legal representation, Eyotr & Co. Advocates located on Makerere Hill Road, Mirembe House 3rd floor, Katushabe wrote to the chairperson of Bungu cell, requesting a meeting with the community members who have occupied the land to engage in a dialogue on July 17, 2023.

The complainant and her lawyer were warned against visiting the site and advised to pursue legal recourse through the appropriate courts of law.
