NEWS: Former minister Nantaba escapes being beaten by MP in Uganda

The State Minister for Fisheries, Ms Christine Andoa, Kayunga leaders and residents of Galilaya Sub-county, in Kayunga District had been treated to drama after two contributors of Parliament came close to a physical battle at a public function.

The drama was sparked by way of Kayunga Woman MP, Ms Aida Nantaba who branded Baale County MP, Mr George Kumama, a land grabber.

Ms Andoa and other district officials have been on Wednesday at Kawongo Landing Site, to reopen fishing activities on Lake Kyoga.

Ms Nantaba who used to be invited by means of Mr Kumama to tackle the gathering, accused local politicians, including Mr Kumama of being land grabbers and condoning land grabbing.

“I sympathise with you because of the hard time you have long past through. I be aware of that many of you have misplaced your land to land grabbers,” she said. “But it hurts me that many of the land grabbers are seated with you as I speak now. Kumama right here surveyed and got land titles in Kisalizi [Forest Reserve), rendering many of you destitute in your country,” Ms Nantaba said amid ululations from residents.

Mr Kumama who is a surveyor via profession, owns a surveying company that was once contracted by way of authorities to survey the wooded area reserve land  to ascertain its boundaries and system its land title.
