The issue of the contentious land where over 200 people were recently evicted has taken another twist after businessman Medard Kiconco claimed he has never evicted anyone in Lusanja.

Addressing a press conference in Kampala, Kiconco said the only piece of land from where the eviction took place was in Ssekanyonyi in Kampala district and not Lusanja in Wakiso as being reported.

“My land is on plot 671, block 206 in Ssekanyonyi, Kampala district and not at Lusanja in Wakiso district as being claimed,”Kiconco said.

He said that the eviction order he got was in reference to that piece of land measuring 3.69 hectares adding that he bought it from one Paulo Katabazi.
