Wilson Kiggwe another evictee told this website that Ssekweyama has so far used some unknown chemicals to spray their remaining crops and that now the crops have all dried up.
“This land grabber is threatening us with his pistol and he’s working with police and other security officers in the district to harass us”-he revealed to us.
Several attempts to get a comment from Muhamed Ssekweyama were futile as he could not pick up our repeated calls. However in the first story this website published he said the land belongs to him and that he bought it from Robert Ndinde.
“That’s my land I bought it from Robert Ndide and I need to use it,” he said in the first story published by this website
Robert Mukasa another resident claims Ssekweyama uses money to woo all people including some journalists to be on his side.
“Many journalists have been coming here to interview us promising to air out our story even on the TV but they are paid off by this land grabber, apart from Ultimate news that has been helping aired out our stories’-Mukasa says
