Land For Every Ugandan?! : The February 2012 Apaa land eviction
Article 237 of the 1995 Constitution of the Republic of Uganda provides that "Land in Uganda belongs to the citizens of Uganda and shall vest in them in accordance with the land tenure systems provided for in the Constitution......" However, there is a growing pattern of land grabbing and dispossession of the poorer citizens in Uganda. The Refugee Law Project, in February 2012 under its DFID funded project; the Advisory Consortium of Conflict Sensitivity conducted a series of research on conflict drivers; root causes, actors, interests, patterns and consequences in the current Apaa land conflict.
In summary, the Apaa land conflict highlights a complex set of issues around land ownership, identity and belonging, resource governance and the rights and protection of property; socio-economic livelihood of the local people; poverty, land tenure and use; access and control as underpinning land conflict this locality. This and other issues are likely to threaten the implementation of the PRDP. The 22 minutes documentary entitled "Land for Every Ugandan!? The February 2012 Apaa Eviction" highlights key conflict indicators, actors involved, consequences of the eviction and other related dynamics.
