The Land grabbing campaign triggered for a peaceful match of more than 65 people from the Nkakwa, Kisigula and several nearby villages of Ssi sub-county led by Mr. Konde Joseph to the district headquarters of Buikwe. The match was aimed at meeting the Residential district commissioner Buikwe district Mr. Bamwine Fred to help comedown the situation and save farmers from being evacuated.

The RCD offered to write an official letter to the Commissioner lands to inquire on behalf on the tenants for the right owner of this land after the farmers exposed their mistrust in the current land lord. He agreed to appoint a representative from his office to attend the meetings organized to agree on the four options above and lastly he will visit the community on 24th January at 11:00am to visit the land under conflict and meeting the land lords. He also promised to go with the documents he will have acquired from the commissioner lands in order to read it to the tenants and finally ordered that until that date, no one is allowed to threaten another parson on issues in regards to this land.
