This is the report relating to the facts finding mission conducted by HAKIARDHI and LHRC as an intervention in response to an outcry from the villagers at Namwawala village in Kilombero district, Morogoro region, owing to the alleged plan of the government to take possession of the village land for investment purposes.

As it is shown in this report, the ongoing government plan is associated with a number of mischievous acts and serious procedural irregularities leading to the violations of Human Rights and fundamental freedoms on the part of small producers, hence calling for an immediate intervention by responsible officials to calm the situation.

These findings clearly indicate that there are many questions with no answers on the part of the government, both local and central in the District level, on the ownership of the said piece of land; procedures as to eviction and compensation, alternative land for the affected population and the validity of such investment at the expense of over 200 school children and about 10,000 people residing in the land under dispute.

Shortly, this report envisages all these controversies as collected from the field through different people who were interviewed and by spot observation.
