brothers and sisters. These new methods of attackers will stop you by
threatening your family, This will force your husband to abandon the home,

of these heinous acts of terrorism. While we recognize that plans are
underway for the recently constituted Judicial Commission of Inquiry

administrative challenges in Apaa.

protect and secure the lives and property of citizens, we note and
appreciate the response of the government in stabilizing the situation
and appreciate efforts to restore law and order.

cooperation at the grassroots level between customary leaders. We will
embark immediately on developing relevant measures to prevent and
tackle this phenomenon, including information-sharing and establishing
peace committees.

We urge the relevant security agents to institute urgent preventive
measures and put in place appropriate criminal justice responses by

thorough investigation of the incident which occurred on 30’ August. All
Those who carried out this dastardly act and their collaboration must be
made to face the full force of the law.

Additionally, we are further concerned that those cultural leaders from
Both Acholi and Madi sides who had been provided sufficient resources
of up to UGX 100 million each may not have done enough to put in
place measures to de-escalate the mindless acts of terrorism which
have now ensured.

The Apaa conflict has claimed 37 lives since 2011. Hundreds of people
disappeared, while dozens of youths arrested from Apaa villages were
taken to Amuru district and taken to Obngi Prison in Adjumani district.
