Katakwi Land Rights Information Centre

\r\n\r\n

Katakwi LRIC was opened in 2009 to create awareness on land rights,\r\nownership, succession and inheritance. The centre is located in the\r\nheart of Katakwi town, Amuge road, opposite Petimma House in Eastern Uganda.

\r\n\r\n

The centre is of significant importance in the area given its history of\r\nviolent tribal clashes over land and other natural resources.  For over 30 years, people lived in internally\r\ndisplaced people¡¯s camps due to insurgency orchestrated by Karamojongs against\r\nthe Ateso through cattle rustling. Following government¡¯s disarmament program,\r\npeople started resettling in villages which sparked off land conflicts.
