HON PETER OGWANG ACCUSES ELAKAS LCV AND HON AKURUT VIOLET THE KATAKWI WOMAN MP FOR GRABBING 55,000 ACRES OF LAND
In the meeting with the some community members Hon Ogwang is accused for having engineered the idea that will affect 22,000 people. He brought a land title of 1963 that seems fake and was using it to grab this land. However information available is that this land belongs to local community.
Due to pressure mounted by local leaders (LC3 OF Guya Guya, LC3 of Ongongoja and LC1s), The Social activists such as Paul Ongoet and Angella and others, Hon ogwang is now changing his narrative. Hon Ogwang is accusing Elakas and Hon Akurut for wanting to grab peoples land. On the other hand, Hon Violet Akurut is accusing Elakas.
It should be noted that the person behind the land grabbing spree is Hon Ogwang.
Hon Ogwang a born of Amuria has no land. His uncles in Amuria have denied him land while in Katakwi to be specific Oale village Ogwang has only one garden where his house/home is.
Secondly, According to the UNDP report, It is suspected that there are Minerals in the said land and Ogwang, Akurut and Elakas want to secure a land title for themselves so that in the near future Government will compensate them with Billions of money over that land.
