Abuse of power by UPDF officers grabbing land

Gukiina Peter made this Access to Information request to Ministry of Defence / Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF)

The request was partially successful.

From: Gukiina Peter

Dear Ministry of Defence / Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF),

I want to make a complaint against certain UPDF officers who grabbed land using UPDF Soldiers (Picture Proof available) and guns claiming to be working for UPDF and later registered it in their names. One of them has even sworn an affidavit that UPDF abandoned the land and he took over. I believe this conduct is contrary to Section 178, 176 of the UPDF Act among other penal laws like obtaining registration by false pretence. It impacts ON THE REPUTATION OF THE UPDF BADLY. And there is a big outcry country wide. Please guide me on the complaints procedure.

Yours faithfully,

GUKIINA PETER

Dear Ministry of Defence / Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF),

I want to make a complaint against certain UPDF officers who grabbed land
using UPDF Soldiers (Picture Proof available) and guns claiming to be
working for UPDF and later registered it in their names. One of them has
even sworn an affidavit that UPDF abandoned the land and he took over. I
believe this conduct is contrary to Section 178, 176 of the UPDF Act among
other penal laws like obtaining registration by false pretence. It impacts
ON THE REPUTATION OF THE UPDF BADLY. And there is a big outcry country
wide. Please guide me on the complaints procedure.

Yours faithfully,
