RFPJ’s STUCK IN THE MIST offers a Contextual Analysis of the Conflicts in the Rwenzori Region and recommends that historical injustices should be documented and addressed by way of reparations, preferably physical compensation in case of lost property, sensitization on the legislations concerning cultural institutions, governance and natural resources, promotion of initiatives that foster attitude change for social cohesion, leadership commitment to promoting unity for development, and respect for cultural and other human rights.


This study examines the centrality of land in the conflict situation in the Rwenzori region of western Uganda. By exploring the factors underlying the incidences of land conflicts, the study derives vital implications of these conflicts to the region’s peace and security situation. The findings indicate that land remains at the centre of the prevailing conflict narrative in the Region. Notwithstanding the narratives that may mask land, such as references to ethno-political and sociolinguistic pluralities and antagonisms, land is the fulcrum around which these struggles revolve. Narratives like ethnic tensions have been researched and told time and again, thus masking the fundamental problem: land governance. Land conflicts tend to draw many different people and agencies into their fold, thus impacting on the peace and security measures and potentialities in the region’s entire community. The study proposes institutional and structural measures for overcoming these interlocking conflicts.
