Government kicks off survey of Amuru land
- Government has finally commenced the verification of land owners in Amuru Sugar Works Project area in Amuru district. The Sugar works project is a joint venture between Madhvani Group of Companies and the government of Uganda.
Lands Minister Betty Amongi says the three weeks exercise will conclude with compensation of the project affected people in the area.
The project has stalled for at least eight years due to a bitter ownership dispute with locals who claim the area as customary land.
