[2019] UGCA 18
Short summary:
Property Law, Land
Headnote and holding:

The court held that as the second appellate court,

it is required to deal with matters of law and not
facts.
The court also held that the appeal revolves
around the question of what kind of interest if any,
the appellants have. The court held that the chief
to whom a licence had been granted passed away
and he could not assign a licence to others and
neither could it be inherited. If the appellant
acquired any interest, it would be in their own
right as occupants of the property.
