Youth want war compensation
Acholi youth have appealed to their MPs to push for the â€˜war victims compensation Billâ€™ to pay victims of the LRA war. In a memorandum presented by their leader, Christopher Omara, at a belated International Youth Day event in Awach sub-county on Wednesday, they said the war had left them with nothing to inherit except land. Therefore, they asked the Government to support them to start farming projects through NAADS. Gulu LC5 vice-chairman McMot Kitara attended.
