Gladys Nakut a resident of Singla Village in Moroto Municipality
asked the police and the army to adjust their strategies of carrying out
"Police and the army needs to sit down and get another tactic
of carrying out operations in Moroto town instead of moving in one line which
armed warriors have known,” She said.
Joseph Lokol another resident said the police and the army seem to
have relaxed saying every night armed warriors also patrol around the town.

warriors do criminal activities from one side while security patrols another
side which is tricky,” he said.

the armed warriors overran the town. In that period, 20 lives were lost forcing
the army and police to intensify operations in the town.
