Hope in Juba
Now that the cessation of hostility agreement has expired, what will the next move be for the Government of Uganda, Lord's Resistance Army and the local population in the Northern part of Uganda? With the presence of the Acholi Paramount chief, Rwot David Onen Achana 11 and key player in the diaspora as well as local leaders from Acholi in Juba, what do we expect? The reality on the ground is that people are now hesitant to go back to their villages for fear of rebel incursion. The LRA walked out of the talks last month and are insisting for a change in venue and mediator. The government position is still the same- no change of venue and mediator.
We appeal to all parties involve to really have the people in the camps at heart.
