The deputy speaker of parliament Anita Among has constituted an Adhoc committee to investigate the Nakawa -Nagguru land issues.
In her communication to the house this afternoon, the Deputy Speaker, Anita Among says there are fights related to the contested land which she adds highlights failure by the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development, and the Uganda Lands Commission.
The committee is being chaired by Kazo County MP Dan Kimosho.
