President Museveni Promises to fix the issue of Balaalo in Northern Uganda

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has met leaders from northern Uganda and promised to fix the issue of Balaalo in the region. 

The leaders were led by the Chief Justice of Uganda, His Lordship Alfonse Owiny-Dollo.

President Museveni had earlier issued a Presidential Executive Order No. 3 about Balaalo ownership of land in Northern Uganda. In the order the President directed the Balaalo to leave Northern Uganda. The Balaalo were to leave the North by the end of June this year, but this was to 20th October 2023 to give him time to study new reports about the Balaalo herdsmen operations in the region.

The Acholi leaders reported to the President that some Balaalo were using names of top officials in the government to commit crimes like grabbing land, destroying crops of the locals among other forms of unlawful acts. 

The President promised the leaders that the issue will be solved by harmonising the relationship between the Acholi people and the herdsmen., according to a statement that was issued by State House.
