Oxfam sounds Uganda land-grab warning

UK charity claims thousands of Ugandans were by force evicted from their homes since 2004.

    A new report by the British charity Oxfam  suggests that over 22,000 Ugandans have been forced out of their homes since 2004.  

    Oxfam claims many of them have been left homeless after being evicted in so-called land-grabs, to clear the way for timber plantations.

    One eviction case involves the British company New Forest Company, who have denied the accusations.
