Residents in Kisoro were yesterday morning shocked when one of their fellows Molly Sawasawa was almost lynched to death by people who were sent to forcefully evict her out of her land.
It is alleged that the attackers were sent by the Kisoro municipality councilor Alex Ndayambaje on the orders of the district chairman Abel Bizimana with claims that the land occupied by Molly belongs to the government.
Molly told www.mknewslink.com reporter that she has been using the land for over 10 years since 2011 thus the eviction comes to her as a surprise.
She added that the duo approached her and wanted her to buy the land but after consultations, sources told her that it belongs to the government.
She further noted she has consulted the district chairman Abel Bizimana who told her that he gave the land to Ndayambaje.
Ndayamaje refused to talk same much about the matter but rather referred our reporter to the lands officer and the CAO for more information about the Land.
Whereas Sekabanza the Kisoro District lands officer clarified to journalist that he doesn’t know anything about the land, the Kisoro District deputy CAO said that Kisoro District local government resolved that all individuals occupying government land should pay rent .
He added that the government must sign memorandum of understanding with individuals who are interested in occupying the houses.
