Adjumani and Lamwo district authorities have
decided to use people along their borderlines to stop the illegal entry of
South Sudanese nationals into Uganda.
The Lamwo District LC V Chairperson,
John Komakech Ogwok says the porous borders in Lamwo district stretches up to
151Km from Ogili to Agoro villages in Palabek Sub Counties.
He says UPDF soldiers, Police and
Local Defense Units have been deployed at the designated border posts and can’t
patrol the entire porous border stretch.
says as a result, they have tasked residents to block any South
Sudanese refugees from sneaking into Uganda using the porous border.
//Cue in “discouraging any business
Cue Out ….Presidential directive”//.
The Adjumani Deputy Resident
District Commissioner, Moses Mugweri, says they have equipped LC I Chairpersons
and their executive members with torches and gumboots among other requirements
to help monitor the porous border in their areas.
//Cue in “We have empowered
// Cue out …entries since then”//.
Titus Jogo, the Adjumani District Refugee Desk Officer told
URN over the weekend that they receive between 30 to 34 South Sudanese refugees
daily who enter Uganda through the porous borders stretching from Moyo to Lamwo
