754 War Debt Claimants In Gulu Cleared To Get Compensation

Members of the Acholi War Debt Claimants Meeting At Pece Stadium in 2015

At least 754 war debt claimants in Gulu district have been verified and cleared to get compensation for livestock lost during the insurgency

Opiyo Christopher Ateker, the district chairperson, says the names of the 754 beneficiaries have been forwarded to the office of the attorney general.

Acholi war debt claimants will be compensated one million up from 600,000 Shillings for each head of cattle lost in a revised rate.

The development comes after government through the Attorney General’s office released 150 billion to compensate the claimants who lost their livestock during insurgencies in Acholi, Lango and Teso sub-regions with each to receive 50 billion Shillings for the next three years.

Matters of the war claims have dragged on since 2003, with government having released billions of shillings that were corruptly handled.

Early this year, government disbursed 10 Billion Shillings that was shared between Acholi, Teso, Lango and Karamoja sub-regions.
