Those against compulsory land acquisition are enemies of development – Museveni

President Yoweri Museveni has once again attacked the opposition and others Ugandan against the proposed compulsory land acquisition bill.

Speaking while appearing on Voice of Tooro (VOT) a local radio station in Kabarole district last evening Museveni said that those delaying government projects are enemy to the youth unemployment.

“The one who is fighting a factory is fighting youth employment and tax base, all those people to fighting the delay of government projects are enemies of development.” He said.

He said most governments in Africa own all lands in their country and they just lease it to the people.

“To know the price of land in any given area is simple and it is common knowledge why should government come to buy your land and you hike the price, people want to loot government, most government projects have been paralyzed due to delayed negotiation and compensation issues” he reasoned.

Museveni is on a countrywide tour in radio campaign to push for the setting up of a land tribunal and change of the current land laws and also defuse what he called toxic misinformation by his political opponents.
