According to Kabango, Amuru district has 86 non-complaint pastoralists, which is the highest in the Acholi sub-region, followed by Pader, 45, Gulu 44, Nwoya 37, and Lamwo with 5 non-complaint pastoralists, who are collectively rearing 2,700 cattle.
The newly established council comprises 20 members, led by private sector organizations from both countries, with significant contributions from their respective Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs). The council has already commenced its work.
This is the second time the president has adjusted the deadline to evict the pastoralists. On May 19th, 2023 Museveni issued Executive Order Number 3 of 2023 banning cattle keeping in northern Uganda by June 30th, saying some of the pastoralists were disrespectful and leaving their animals to graze in people’s gardens, hence causing food insecurity.
