On 19 August 2001, the Ugandan army forcefully evicted the population of several villages near Mubende from their land to make way for a coffee plantation. The Ugandan government leased the land to Kaweri Coffee Plantation Ltd., a subsidiary of the German company Neumann Kaffee Gruppe. To date, none of the evictees have been compensated, neither for their loss of land nor for  the extreme state of emergency under which they have lived from the day the eviction took place.
