By Sam Ssebuliba. 

President  Yoweri  Museveni  is today expected to  wrap  up  the  first  leg  of  the  land  education  campaign  with  a national  press  conference at  State  House  Entebbe.

Early this month the president embarked on a countrywide radio campaign aimed at popularizing the now controversial land bill that seeks to among other things enable government to acquire private land for development projects without prior compensation for owners.

The president has covered several regions starting from western region, Greater Masaka and Busoga where he was yesterday and finally Kampala and Wakiso today.

Earlier, the presidential press secretary Don Wanyama said the president would address representatives for all media houses at once and this brief will be transmitted live on all willing broadcast outlets.
