In short
Peoples Development Party presidential flag bearer, Dr. Abed Bwanika says land grabbing and displacement of people is one of the causes of poverty in Uganda.

People's Development Party (PDP) presidential candidate Dr. Abed Bwanika warns people who intimidate locals and grab land from them in Kayunga.

Bwanika says he will deal with such people if he is voted into office. He accuses such people of leading to poverty in the country by disrupting economic activity in Kayunga by evicting people.

Bwanika cited Moses Karangwa, the Kayunga district National Resistance Movement party chairman, who he accused of evicting people from their land.

According to Bwanika, people who grab land can not be tolerated and promised to allow the affected people to decide what they want to do with their land.

Speaking to Uganda radio Network on phone, Karangwa said Bwanika should leave him out of his campaigns, and focus on his rivals in the presidential race.

Bwanika was Monday afternoon campaigning in Kayunga district.

Addressing supporters at Kayunga Taxi Park, Bwanika urged Ugandans to scrutinize candidates before the 2016 elections, so that they choose people who will support development.
