CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION 1.0 Introduction: This chapter presents the introduction of the study, statement of the problem, objectives, research questions, relevance of the study, scope, research method, data collection techniques, ethical considerations and limitations. 1.1 Background of the study. Buliisa district formerly a county was curved out of Masindi district in 2006 and boarders Lake Albert an area that has been found to be rich in oil deposits. The district comprises six sub-counties and a town council which is the main urban center. Agriculture and livestock production are the main economic activities. Fishing is another major economic activity, particularly in the areas bordering Lake Albert. In Uganda, every Citizen is guaranteed the right to own property under Article 26 of the Constitution the republic of Uganda 19951. However prior to the enactment of the 1995 Constitution, in 1975 land was nationalized in Uganda and vested in the Uganda Land Commission and it was only held in form of leases by people but this was later overturned, and now people own land according to four tenure systems which are: leasehold, mailo, freehold and customary as provided for under Article 237 (3) of the Constitution of the republic of Uganda 1995. Land in Uganda belongs to the people according to article 237( 1) and section 2 of the land Act reiterates that provision as seen in the case of KAMPALA DISTRICT LAND BOARD &ANOR VS. NATIONAL HOUSING AND CONSTRUCTION CORPORATION.
