Kisoro RDC promises land to Batwa.

The Kisoro Resident District Commissioner Madam Purukeria Muhindo Mwine has promised to collaborate with Kisoro district local government so as to have the landless Batwa resettled.

This she said on the 6/8/2014 during her visit to Musasa, Rukeri and Kabare Batwa communities in Nyarusiza Sub County, Kisoro district.

She also went ahead to say that the reason Batwa are not developed is because they are landless which she condemned saying that no one in Uganda should be landless yet the government has lots of free land.

The RDC who had been accompanied by her deputy Mucunguzi Geoffrey, staff from UOBDU, local leaders and sub county leaders also called upon the Batwa to change their mindset towards development, encouraged them to work hard and educate their children.

Batwa who were very overwhelmed to have the RDC’s office visit them requested for among other things to have a chance and meet the president of Uganda so that they can directly express their concerns that have been affecting them for a long time.
