President Museveni has pledged to appoint senior police officers and lawyers to help the commission of inquiry into land matters implement some of their recommendations.

This was revealed on Thursday as the commission led by Justice Catherine Bamugemereire handed over the interim report to President Museveni after more than two years of work.

The team handed over the report to the President at his demonstration farm in Kawumu, Luweero District.

According to Justice Bamugemereire, after 120 days of public hearings, they have received 4,900 complaints, listened to 287 and reviewed 600.

The interim report recommends, among others, creating a land authority and conservation agency by merging
many land management units.

The President commended the probe team for the good work so far and added that when the final report is handed over in May, cabinet would review and take the next step.

The probe team was appointed by the President in 2016 to assess the effectiveness of land management systems in the country.
