Museveni: We’ll Not Compensate Encroachers On Wetlands, Road Reserves

President Yoweri Museveni has said no one should build or buy land in the road reserves or wetlands.

“You will lose your money and we shall NOT compensate anyone. Your titles will be canceled. Tampering with wetlands is not a good practice for our environment. Even those planting rice in swamps should desist,” Museveni said via his Twitter handle.

He added: “I will get time and come to Eastern Uganda to talk about growing rice in swamps. You would rather do fish farming which brings the same amount of money while saving the swamps and using the swamp grass for mulching your gardens.”
