APAA: GOVERNMENT ACCUSED OF NEGLECT

The Acholi team that was set up to investigate the Apaa boundary dispute has accused the Government of neglecting over 300 displaced Apaa residents.

In 2015, the government forcefully planted mark stones in Apaa Village, in the Amuru-Adjumani districts to demarcate boundaries amidst protests from residents asserting that the land in question is part of East Madi wildlife reserve.

More than 21 people were injured when police used live bullets to disperse those opposed to the demarcation exercise leading the government to set up an eight-member committee led by the Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda to investigate the matter.

Now appearing before the Parliamentary select committee on Apaa, Daniel Kidega, the Vice-chairperson of the Acholi team noted that Government has failed to protect the people affected while Committee chairperson Agnes Amede said the committee will do its best to present an adequate report before the house.
