An unidentified man has fainted after the High Court in Kampala ordered over 100 residents of Lusanja to vacate the land belonging to businessman, Medard Kiconco.
Kiconco went to court seeking for orders confirming him as the rightful owner of the contested land and that the tenants who had earlier been forcefully evicted occupied it illegally.
On Friday, Justice Taddeo Asiimwe ruled that Kiconco is the rightful owner of the land, before ordering all the occupants to vacate the same within a period of 30 days.
“The plaintiff (Kiconco) has been found to have rightfully purchased the land from Paul Bitarabeho and is the rightful owner of the land registered in April 2016. The defendants are therefore ordered to vacate the land in 30 days but if they refuse, the execution division will send bailiffs to force them off the land,” ruled Justice Asiimwe .
Following the ruling, one of the affected residents had to be rushed to hospital in critical condition after collapsing in the court premises.
It took the intervention of some of his colleagues to lift him to a shade before he was rushed to hospital.
