Karamoja Murders

The joint security forces in Karamoja are arresting and detaining suspected cattle rustlers who hand over their firearms voluntarily, despite criticism from both leaders and the community.

The arrests are in contravention of a government call to Karamojong warriors to voluntarily hand over illegal firearms so they can be granted amnesty and benefit from government programs. But security forces have defended the arrests saying one of the arrested persons was a serial murderer who should further be investigated before setting him free.

Brig Gen Joseph Balikudembe, the UPDF 3rd Division Commander said that some suspects who pretend to surrender guns peacefully have got a big following of raiders and setting them free becomes a mockery to the security forces. He says that several raiders who surrendered guns to the security forces have been re-arrested with more guns despite possessing amnesty certificates.
