Entebbe: President Museveni has sworn-in  Judicial Commission of Inquiry to deal with the Apaa land dispute.

Museveni made the remarks today at State House Entebbe during the swearing-in of members of the Commission who were appointed on 3rd April 2023. The Districts of Adjumani and Amuru in Northern Uganda have been at the centre of conflict over the land in question.

“The best medicine for the Apaa land dispute is a Commission of Inquiry. Why? Because, in all our other efforts, people play with us. The commission has got powers of a Court,” he said.
