An investor has been accused of trying to set up a flower farm in a swamp near Entebbe International Airport.
The Saturday Monitor understands that the investor, Mr Bob Kanabi, has already applied to Civil Aviation Authority, seeking clearance regarding the obstacle regulation and removal before kick-starting his project.
He is said to have also contracted a private firm to carry out an Environment Impact Assessment.
But the contracted company is still carrying out consultations about setting up the flower farm.
During the last village meeting on Wednesday, the community turned down the proposal, saying it will have far-reaching impacts on their lives.
When contacted, Mr Kanabi said: “The company is mine but I don’t know anything concerning setting up a flower farm in Namiro swamp.”
