By Caroline Lamwaka and Justin Moro THE Government has built primary schools, health centres and repaired boreholes in parishes as a step towards decongesting the camps in Gulu. The Gulu LC5 chairman, Lt. Col. Walter Ochora, told a Uganda-Sudan religious leaders’ consultative meeting recently that the decongestation programme would take three months. Briefing participants on the situation of the internally displaced people, Ochora said, “The decongestion programme is expected to start soon. “We have given proposals to donors, we are meeting to handle the reports.” He said a report on the camps was recently presented to President Yoweri Museveni. “People have been brought to the camps in an adhoc way, but we don’t want to send them the same way,” he said. The Gulu Resident District Commissioner, Musa Ecweru, said people in the settlement camps were more vulnerable to rape and abduction.
