ABSTRACT

This research is aimed at establishing the right of women to own property in Africa in general

taking the practice in Bomba town as an example.

History, culture, traditions and customs in Africa seem to demonstrate that African women do

not enjoy any right to own property. However, modernization and legislation have intervened

since the 19111 century to change the situation in favor of women.

The problem is whether those changes intended to protect women as introduced by International

and municipal laws aimed at protecting and promoting women's rights to property ownership are

being adhered to.

The researcher took some days to physically investigate the practical situation in Bomba town of

Luwere district in Uganda. The Nubian community of Bomba has been chosen because of its

conservative Islamic cultures and traditions.

In conclusion, the researcher is of the opinion that despite modernization and legislation as stated

earlier, the position of women with regards to property ownership has not changed much over the

years and that there is great need for more enlightenment and empowennent of women.
