John (Yokaana) Senyonga

EN

 

John (Yokaana) Senyonga, 87, lives in Kasenyi. His land is his life and without it he has no means of feeding himself. For years he has been farming his land, producing an income and bringing up his family of eight children.

 

The land, farmed by the people of the village has now been taken away from many of them by the local land committee. They've been informed that it now belongs to the palm plantation.
