In August 2001, the government of Uganda brutally evicted 392 peasant families from their land in Mubende.
The land was then given to a German coffee company for the purpose of establishing a coffee plantation under its local subsidiary, Kaweri Coffee Plantation Ltd. While some of the victims have found shelter on the neighbouring land and are conducting temporary small-scale farming, others were employed by the plantation as casual workers. After years of struggle, the legal procedure to reclaim their land and properties seems to finally take off. However, the government, represented by the attorney general, continues to impede the due course of the process.
