Key land issues

Land in Apac district is held customarily and most of the conflicts arise between relatives fighting over boundaries. Land is not marked and people do not know the boundaries of their land. The other challenge is that descendants of people who migrated long ago from areas return after many years and claim back land which is already occupied by other people. Women are also denied access and ownership of land mainly by their brothers who feel that women should not inherit land from their father¡¯s clan.
