Gen, Angina advises Government to help peasants gain out of their land

The Deputy commander of operation wealth creation (OWC), Gen. Charles Angina has called upon government to set up a policy which will help peasants to gain out of their land hired to big investors in the agricultural sector.

Angina made the remarks at the Imperial Golf View Hotel in Entebbe during a two days’ workshop for the technocrats from the ministry of agriculture, animal industry and fisheries, who are preparing for the Joint Agricultural Sector Annual Review (JASAR) 2017 which will take place next week on 27th and 28th    at Speke Resort Munyonyo.

Citing the example of Amuru and Nwoya Districts from Northern Uganda, Angina told the participants that time has come for them to come up with a policy to help peasants also gain out of their land because investors here have taken advantage to cheat them without any interventions from government.

In reply, the permanent secretary of the ministry of agriculture, Pius Wakhabi Kasaija said he is going to consult over the matter and come up with a lasting solution to the problem.
