Speaking to reporters shortly after, Dr. Senfuka said that the RDC and his colleagues have exceeded their limits.

“We are all Ugandans and deserve equal treatment, RDCs should sensitize the people in a proper way other than rallying residents against land owners,” he said

“Landowners should be handled well because we bought it. Whites didn’t give free land people just see value in land and go buy it and that’s what should be considered not trading divisions as done by RDCs and some district leaders.
