Iganga district leaders have asked the Inspectorate of Government to investigate ongoing wrangles between Bugweri chiefdom, Iganga Local Government and Abaise Kaziba clan.

The wrangles started after the clan accused the chiefdom of encroaching on part of its land.

In 2010, it was established that the sub county local government, who used Bugweri chiefdom land for its headquarters had encroached on 4 of the 65 acres of the Abaise Kaziba clan land in Bugweri County. They subsequently filed a petition in Jinja high court which ruled in their favor in 2013.

The Clan representative Muzamir Kaziba, a resident of Busesa village in Bugweri County says they now need a thorough investigation to settle the controversy over the land in question.

But Samuel Menhya Kakaire the chief of Bugweri chiefdom claims that the disputed land was temporarily given to Abaise Kaziba clan by their late grandfather Menhya Zilaba Muzaale. Menhya Kakaire says they have tried to repossess their land from Abaise Kaziba since 2000 in vain.

He says that in 2001, when they approached Abaise Kaziba over the matter, they were arrested and detained for allegedly threatening the lives of the Abaise Kaziba clan members. Menhya Kakaire believes their arrest was aimed at intimidating and frustrating their efforts to reclaim the land.

Abdul Katuntu, The Bugweri county Member of Parliament explains that earlier, the Bugweri county headquarters including the land on which it is established was being run by Bugweri sub county local government. However government degazzated the facility and handed it over to Busoga Kingdom for proper management when Busoga kingdom came into operation.

Busoga kingdom interim committee spokesperson Andrew Ntange says Bugweri chiefdom, just like all chiefdom\'s of Busoga will not relent to the fresh demands as it is the sole owner of the land.

Ntange says plots of land in Kamuli, Kaliro, Bukhooli and Kigulu have also been encroached on before and Busoga kingdom is still pursuing means to redeem them.
