LAND DISPUTES ON THE RISE WILL THE LAND COMMISSION BE IMPARTIAL AND INDEPENDENT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

A happily married industrious man, in his overall outfit, walked into
the Foroyaa with blood shot eyes to find out where he could turn to
for salvation.He has legal papers showing that he has bought a piece of land in
Jabang. He has a sketch plan showing where the land is located. He and
the wife devoted time energy and resources to the task of clearing a
forest with snakes to establish a home for his children. Every decent
person considers hard work to earn a living.    This young family should have been a model for those who wish to prove that industriousness could pay
Now both husband and wife are in tears because of a demolition
exercise which emerged from a land dispute which is yet to be decided
by a court.
The man was referred to a lawyer but he claims to lack the means to
pay any legal cost after spending all his earnings to build a solid
building in the woods.
What is the role of a state to such people? Who is to protect them?
Who will wipe their tears? Who will reward their hand work?
Foroyaa will contact the village head and the physical planning office
to get answers to vexed questions. The state should protect its honest
and hardworking citizens.
