The decision was announced by the Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Anita Among, during the plenary session the day before while referring to the prevailing insecurity in the sub-regions of Teso, Karamoja, Sebei, Lango and Acholi, which also resulted in the loss of human lives.
Accordingly, he directed the Defense and Internal Affairs Committee to meet with local legislators and then send a team to the field to engage with the local population in the quest for peace and harmony.
If there is a need to go to the field, I would like General Elwelu to take the lead, especially on security issues, Among said. Elwelu is a member of the commission.
Let’s get a lasting solution that we can achieve ourselves, we don’t need outsiders, he stressed.
Livestock trade is one of the main economic activities in rural areas of the country, and animal theft is one of the key crimes, especially in rural areas.
