President Museveni has rallied Ugandans to clearly will over their estates before they die as he repeatedly expressed his dislike for property fragmentation when one dies.
Much of the societies in Uganda operate under a traditional system under which assets are usually apportioned for allocation to inheritors, often triggering deadly family clashes.
Museveni noted that family heads should always not wait to die then stir chaos and conflicts over the property.
Museveni made the call even louder when he held that persistent property fragmentation, including among elites, threatens to be the greatest undoing of socio-economic progress especially in Ankole Region over the last 40 years.
Museveni, who was leading Women’s Day celebrations at sanga town council play ground in Kiruhura, called upon authorities to “be visionary in their leadership approaches.”
He said all leaders should know that the new war is now to educate these ignorant people not to divide property physically but keep the property together and use the modern method of shares whereby the beneficiaries share profits from the property.
