Stop the evil system of Mailo land issues, Museveni tells Buganda.

Starting off his 6th term in office, while celebrating the 32nd scientific “Heros” day at Kololo Independence grounds today the 9th of Jun, 2021.

H. E Yower Kaguta Museveni came  in his address and echoed his concerns by criticizing and describing the “Mailo Land” system in the Buganda Region as “evil”.
“It’s not anywhere else in Uganda, landowners.

It’s not anywhere else in Uganda, landowners should be entitled to full ownership of their land like elsewhere in Uganda. In Ankole, nobody can chase you away from your land. You even fear, I was surprised to hear that veteran Livingston Ssenabulya who gave us a forest during the [1986] liberation war had been chased from his land. The person who was chasing them, Namwandu Mulyante, was our person”.

Mailo Land is a land tenure system that came into effect when the Buganda Kingdom signed the 1900 agreement. The Mailo system is predominantly in Buganda region and in some parts of Mbale, Bunyoro, and Toro.

He further frankly added that, in Buganda, they have so many actors with each one saying this and that, and it’s all against a small person. We shall see what to propose including on the issue of absentee landlords,”.
