ACHOLI was relatively calm over Easter. The UPDF deployed heavily at all displaced persons’ camps and along roads.

At Gulu Inn, former LRA commanders and senior UPDF officers danced the Easter night away at a show staged by London-based artiste Roselyn Storm Otim and local musicians. Otim organised the show to raise funds for children formerly abducted by rebels.

Former LRA commanders Brig. Sam Kolo, Brig. Kenneth Banya and Col. Onen Kamdulu danced with senior UPDF officers including the 4th division commander, Col. Nathan Mugisha and the regional UPDF intelligence coordinator, Col. Otema Awany.

The UPDF maintained security for celebrants who included district leaders Nixon Owole (Adjumani), Col. Walter Ochora (Gulu), Nahaman Ojwee (Kitgum) and Edwin Yakobo Komakech (Pader).

They danced to the music of Rasta Bostnick Otim, Dida Moses, BSG Labongo and Otim.

Otim said she had come back home after completion of her degree in London and would work with other Acholi to rebuild northern Uganda.
The police said there were few cases reported during the Easter celebration.

In Kitgum district, there was another show by Jehria Okwera at Boma grounds.
