Insuza villagers have clashed with each other following the burning of grazing pastures by suspected home seekers who were clearing land for the construction of their homes.

Ward 11 Councillor Patterson Zororo said Insuza is a resettlement area and the grazing pastures there determine how much one cow grazes within a year and with the clearing of these pastures there is now cause for concern.

"Livestock is wealth as far as villagers are concerned and toying with their livelihood is sparking furore here because of the clearing and burning of grazing pastures for housing stands without the consent of the villagers," he said.
