I can’t believe how much I have saved, I am now happy that I did not sell anything to get justice like I did when my small piece of land was grabbed, an excited Joyce Kobusingye a resident of Nyakasheema parish in Ruteete sub county narrates her story of joy.

Kobusingye is one of the many people who boast of the role Bataka court is contributing to poverty eradiction in the district. She said that many residents used to spend a lot of the valuable time and money to buy justice which is no longer the case now with the Bataka courts. “At least I am happy that I did not spend any money and too much time to secure justice during my case aginst my neighbout over the orphans land boundary like it was last year” she said.  “Last year when my one acre peace of land was grabbed by one rich man called Byaruhanga David, I spent over 2 million trying to secure it but failed. I actually sold another piece of land to raise money to facilitate the case, I lost time since every week I was supposed to go from one place to another, my children were no longer schooling because they were psychologically affected, we were faced with hunger because all the time was spent going to courts…” Kobusingye narrated her previous experience with the formal court system.
