Residents of Sheema District have vowed to deal with government officials trying to evacuate Kitagata Hot Springs to develop the land to benefit the government .
Residents yesterday 19th March 2021 intimated to www.mknewslink.com that Sheema RDC Frank Besigye Kyerere is conniving with some district leaders to evacuate the Hot Springs.
They noted that overtime they have been benefiting from the hot springs since some have businesses around the hot springs.
Led by Retired Senior Commissioner of Police Laban Muhabwa who recently contested for Chairmanship of Sheema but lost to Jemimah Buhanda , the residents vowed that they will fight to the end to make sure no one tempers with their hot springs.
Angry residents who talked to our reporter warned that Kitagata hot spring is God given, was found there and vowed that it must remain.
Muhabwa added that district leaders have on several occasions tried to snatch Kitagata Hot Springs from the hands of Ugandans all in the name of developing the vast land for District gains.
He however warned government leaders not to dare take this deadly move and called upon Ugandans to be ready with stones, sticks so that they lynch whoever comes close the hot spring with his or her ill intentions.
“In 1984 some corrupt government leaders tried taking over these hot springs but we fought them and I can assure them that we are still ready to fight for the same cause,” furious Muhabwa Said.
By the time of this publication, our efforts to get a comment from RDC Kyerere were still futile as his known numbers could not go through.
www.mknewslink.com however looks forward to bringing you what Frank Kyerere has to say about the situation.
