The long-awaited report on Kiryandongo forceful land eviction is set to be tomorrow at 10am, East African Standard time. The forceful and violent evictions are being carried out by three multinational companies namely, Agilis Partners limited; Kiryandongo Sugar Limited and Great Seasons SMC limited without a court action.

The eviction is coupled with gross human rights violations/abuses from rape and sexual assaults of women and girls, illegal arrests and detentions of lawyers for the communities, land rights defenders, individual community members, demolition of schools, worshiping centers, houses, cutting down smallholders plantations to use of criminal justice systems to persecution of outspoken community members against the illegal evictions.

The research report is produced by witnessradio.org, GRAIN and Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa.

Please join us online as the event will be streamed live on both Facebook and Twitter.
