This is a matter involving Florence (not real name) and her son Fred (not real name) that was referred to JCU Mubende Centre in September 2018 by Legal Aid Project of the Uganda Law Society. Florence had lost her seven (7) acres of land to Titus (not real name) who claimed to have bought the land from Simon (not real name). Simon sold Florence’s land to Titus with assurance that Florence had knowledge about the sale, which was all false.
Florence through her son, made several attempts to recover the land by reporting to local authorities but all in vain. Fred finally filed a civil suit in 2009 on behalf of his mother and the case had been in Court since then. Our Legal Officer, Emmauel Ojulong, represented Fred in Court and judgement was ruled in our clients’ favor as the Court decreed the seven (7) acres of land to Florence and her son Fred.
