For over fifty years, Hamisi Bidii farmed a small piece of land 50km north of Mombasa in Kilifi County, Kenya. Hamisi grew cashew nuts, palm and mango trees on his four-acre plot – which provided a modest income for his family – and served his community and country as a local Administration Chief in the years immediately following Kenya’s independence.
One man is dead, another languishes in prison, a widow is destitute and her grandchildren have been forced out of school and into casual labour. These are the devastating impacts of corruption and conflict surrounding one small plot of land in the Central Region of Uganda.
