Residents of Lwanyonyi-Kirangira in Nama sub-county, Mukono district have held a feast to celebrate the death of their landlord, Israel Dickson Banoba. The late Banoba, who has been feuding with the residents over land for the last 30 years, suffered a heart failure on Monday last week.
The residents have for years, accused Banoba of forcefully evicting them from their land and corruptly dragging them to court. On Thursday, about 80 residents led by Umalu Ssebuyonjo slaughtered a cow and roasted the meat on the contested land to celebrate Banoba’s demise. The residents also mockingly installed a puppy as Banoba’s heir.
