They should go and meet the people they claimed to have sold land to them, we dont know them.The people claiming to be members of the landlord association knew they were in the wrong hands, but were assured of protection by the people who were illegally selling lands to them.We were shouting that time, but they connived with the people selling land to them to beat and use dangerous weapons against our people, because they compromised all security agents that could come for them.
