Land is life and key asset for Uganda peasants

must clearly, consistently and unambiguously advise our authorities at national
and local levels, parliamentarians and would-be foreign developers that
Uganda’s land is life and key asset where 90 percent of our
people live and earn their livelihood. Land is also wealth and a source of
security for almost all Ugandans who do not have pensions when they retire. Above
all, land has sentimental value as our ancestors’ home. It is priceless!
Therefore, it is not a commodity for sale to the highest bidder – local or
foreign. And that is why land has become the single most contentious issue in
Uganda’s political economy.
