By Andrew Ibona

The ministry of land, housing and Urban development has embarked on a new system where before eviction; one has to report to police with an eviction court order before carrying out any demolition.

According to the minister, Betty Amongi, a number of people in the country have been carrying out illegal evictions without court orders and displacing a number of people.

She adds that this has left a number of people most especially those evicted from the markets stranded due to illegal evictions.

It is against this background that she notes that the ministry has introduced a new system to stop illegal evictions and grabbing of land by business people.
