Immelda Nabirimu

Immelda Nabirimu from Buswa village farms 2.5 acres of sweet potatoes, cassava, banana, yams and goats. Her husband is a labourer for BIDCO, the company behind the plantation. Together they have nine children. The family have been threatened by BIDCO representatives who say that the land is theirs and want her to move away. Land speculators are constantly looking for land to sell or lease to the company, everyone’s land or right to land is under scrutiny. The hunger for profit is starting to tear apart a society that previously relied on subsistence farming. Credit: FoEI / ATI - Jason Taylor
