DR YEKKO (Kween County, Kapchorwa): Thank you, Mr Chairman, for allowing me tocontribute on this Motion. Well, having listened to what hon. Naburi and others, I have threepoints to talk about; that is on security, famine and tarmacking roads. About the insecurity, having listened to what hon. Naburi and others have said, my emphasis herewill be to elaborate on serious note, on the trends their security has taken place since thebeginning of this year. Whereas, from the beginning of this year, people in Kapchorwa have livedin relative peace with our neighbours from Karamoja, from around December to about March thisyear, and many of you, especially, those from districts who neighbour Karamoja understand thatthere are negotiations going on to hold a conference on 16th of this month as regarding how tobring security in Karamoja and neighbours. It is regrettable that since April, up to last week on 28th of June, there have been six threatsoriginating from Karamoja region and mainly hitting Kween County where I represent, and oversix people have been killed and many others wounded. The last two raids involved the killing oftwo civilians when they were traveling and were being driven towards Moroto District. And thenon the last week on Wednesday another group attacked the LDU Barracks in Kiriki and killed onesoldier and they wounded others. It is observed that part of this could be from the withdrawal of NRA who were originally attackedto Mirikajore, just Bunya and Kiriki strong to the escalating security. Well, these places I havementioned just in Kajore and Kiriki, are for this cattle rustling. And it also doubted whether theKarimojong understand peaceful negotiations. Because you remember that in February as thehon. Member from Soroti has said, His Excellency has given the Karimojong some two weeks tohandle over the guns, up to now they have not handed over. And then also at the beginning ofthis year the Karimojong moved away to neighbouring districts including Kapchorwa, and whilethey were there, it is found that they never indulge in any cattle rustling again. But since April upto now, they have started raiding. So, I do not think these people will ever understand any peaceful language, I think some othermethods we have to use in order to bring peace, is to convince the Karimojong and theirneighbours and latest attacks which was last week which was in the LDU Barracks who have noanimals seems to indicate that this is a move to complete the delay - the peace negotiations goingon. I think the Karimojong want to open, to create a corridor where they can pass without anyinterference at all. When they want to continue their raids. It is therefore, a constant view ofpeople of Kapchorwa that unless stand measures are taken over by the government, conditionswhich existed in 1986, and 1987 may arise again. At that time there was total insecurity in thewhole area.
