Daily Monitor – A group of Madi political and cultural leaders have opposed some of President Museveni’s recent directives aimed finding a long-lasting solution to the controversial Apaa land clashes.
Last Thursday, Mr Museveni met top political leadership from Acholi Sub-region at State House Entebbe to discuss the fresh clashes that broke out in Apaa land two weeks ago.
During the meeting, the President reportedly okayed the establishment of a commission of inquiry to establish the actual boundaries for the disputed land, which is on the border between Adjumani and Amuru districts.
The land is claimed by the two districts and Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA).
UWA says the disputed land is part of East Madi Wildlife Reserve.
The government evicted people from the disputed land following several clashes between the Madi ethnic group from Adjumani and their Acholi neighbours from Amuru.
President Museveni in the Thursday meeting also reportedly instructed the UPDF Chief of Defence Forces, Gen Wilson Mbadi, to en-force maximum security in the area and ensure that the attacks cease.
