Burkina Faso: Civil society to protest again to denounce land grabbing

Friday, 30 March 2018 17:21

(Ecofin Agency) - One more time! After a first protest march organized last March 15 by the coalition of housing rights associations (CADDL), the coordination in Ouagadougou of national coalition against high cost of living (CCVC Ouaga) announces a new march on April 5 to denounce the “complicit silence” of the Burkinabe authorities on what it describes as “land grabbing” by real estate companies and agribusiness operators.

With the parceling, that paved the way for land speculation by municipal councils of communes and districts during the president Compaoré’s term, populations have suffered a flagrant injustice,” Dominique Yaméogo (photo), a CCVC member said, as Burkina 24 reported.

“The subdivisions most often realized in a total lack of transparency added to land speculation have set aside several families who were really in need,” he added.

Alain Gilbert Koala, another member of the coalition indicated that “these are slums that the authorities want to establish instead of non-parceled areas, by subcontracting with real estate agencies. The land issue can raise the next popular protest in Burkina”. Burkina 24 also specified that the protestors essentially requested a complete audit of past parceling operations and the removal of “stolen land” to reallocate them to real residents, a halt in land grabbing by real estate companies and agribusiness operators. They also requested the construction of social and decent housing for the population.
