In the agreement whose signing was witnessed by president Museveni in Rwakitura the community agreed to withdraw the pending case in the court of appeal.
The Attorney General, Peter Nyombi represented the government while Mr. Jackson Obalim and over sixty other members of the Lamogi community, signed on behalf of their people.
