By Bruce Rukundo
Residents of Isingiro ward in Bugongi Town Council Sheema district have held a peaceful demonstration demanding the Town Council authorities to pay back their money which they had paid to hire land for cultivation.
The residents last evening told www.mknewslink.com reporter that in August 2021, they paid shs.30, 000 each to Bugongi Town council to hire them land for cultivation.
They added that they were shocked this week after the Bugongi Town Council authorities destroyed their gardens accusing them on cultivating in wet lands.
The mayor Wilson Tugume said that by the time they hired out the land to residents it wasn’t yet demarcated.
However, the RDC Sheema district Frank Kyerere said that if it is true that the Town council hired out the wetland, they should be sued and taken to the Courts of law.
