In a suspected case of violence over land, one man was last month beaten and left for dead in one of Kampala’s suburbs.

Peter Kalumba of Namasuba-Ndejje village, Wakiso district, was returning home from work when three unidentified men waylaid him and beat him, causing him seriously injuries. Residents rescued him from a swamp where he was found lying in a pool of blood.

Kalumba reported the case to Katwe Police Station under file number SD REF 40/12/4/2017.

But what makes Kalumba’s case rather unique is the pattern of violent acts that have befallen his relatives allegedly over a long-running dispute over a piece of land in Ndejje.

Kalumba’s sister Sylvia Nabunya, left Uganda in 2007 after being kidnapped and tortured. It is suspected that Kalumba was beaten over that land wrangle since he has for some time been trying to safeguard his sister’s rights over the disputed land.

In 2016, Nabunya’s cousin, John Kibirige who was following up on the same case, mysteriously disappeared and has not been found to date. Reports show that land wrangles are among the biggest cause of violence in communities, but also constitute the biggest number of case backlog by courts.
