Buganda Kingdom has recommended for the re-establishment of special District Land Tribunals as a full time dispute resolution mechanism with and expanded membership.
Presenting the memorandum on land matters before Justice Catherine Bamugemereire’s Commission of Inquiry into land matters, the Katikkiro of Buganda expressed dissatisfaction over the manner in which land cases are currently handled by the courts of law.
Mayiga says courts are slow in handling land matters which at times are also compromised making it a bottleneck to delivering justice on issues concerning land disputes.
He also suggests that government ensures that Land Division of the High Court be allocated with more judges to make timely judgments and clear case backlog.
