Three years down the road, residents who are now living like squatters in the proposed oil refinery land in Buseruka sub county Hoima district are still waiting for resettlement.
If relocated in the proposed land of Kyakaboga village, Hoima district, the residents are entitled to land equivalent to what they had, a house and other social amenities, according to the commitment made by government in the Resettlement Action Plan.
However, in the recent resettlement plan that was availed to the affected residents by the Ministry of Energy and Natural resources, 47 out of 93 families to be relocated are not entitled to houses.
Innocent Tumwebaze, the vice chairperson of Proposed Oil Refinery Residents association says this has not only thrown people into fear for their future but also left them hopeless.
