Kadaga Warns About Serious Post Conflict Challenges in the North

Audio 2

The Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga, has warned that the effects of the two decade war in northern Uganda could far outweigh the challenges faced at the height of the war.

Speaking at the end of a peace prayer week in Lira Kadaga said the process of rehabilitating of former fighters and the displaced communities could be the most daunting task for Government and local leaders. She said the psychological and physical wounds inflicted on the population in northern Uganda are deep and healing and reconciliation will be a challenge.

Kadaga advised all stake holders in the post-war rehabilitation process to make psychosocial therapy more readily available to deal with the trauma of war. She said Government has developed a comprehensive peace plan to address post-conflict challenges.
