Butchers at Mpigi town council abattoir have protested the construction of a pigsty on part of the abattoir land.

The butchers headed by their chairperson Robert Makumbi are accusing Bernard Iga of trespassing on the land to construct the sty next to the place where meat for public consumption is slaughtered. 

Cue in: /// omusajja atulabiriza ajjakiro...

Cue out: ....  town council bwejja abanyooma bunyoomi.///


On Thursday, the Mpigi Resident District Commissioner Rose Byabasaija was forced to intervene to prevent clashes between the butchers and Iga's agents. 

According to Makumbi, the land which measures three acres was leased to them by Mpigi town council in 2006 for 48 years. 

But Iga insists that he is a Kibanja holder and he is only answerable to Buganda Land Board.

Cue in: /// ekifo kino okirina otya...

Cue out... bali kunsonga yeemu.

Byabasaija halted activities on the land until the district security meeting to establish the owner of the land.

Cue in: /// ekitegeeza tulina abantu....

Cue out: ...tulabe who owns what.///
