Soldiers in Kajo-Keji county in Central Equatorial province in Southern Sudan invaded Afoji village in Moyo district and caned the residents last Tuesday.
The district officials said 15 men, who were trying to install an MTN mast about a kilometre from Jalle border point, were also attacked and their work was dismantled. Moyo district police commander, John Goville, said the resident district commisioner would meet the commissioner of Kajo-Keji over the incident. However, the Sudanese regional cooperation liaisons officer, Nak Cuo, said he was not aware of the incident. A Sudanese embassy official, Charles Ciec, said he was aware of the tension which began in 2005 over the land. He said the area was contested by the Sudanese and Ugandan villagers.
Child activists petition police
- APAC
Three child rights activist groups have petitioned the Police to explain why they released a church leader who was detained over defiling and making a 16-year-old schoolgirl pregnant. The Anti-corruption Coalition, Action Aid Uganda and Apac Women Development Association have written to the CID headquarters to investigate the matter. Last week, the Police detained the Rt. Rev. Willy Okello Odwee following reports that he defiled a pupil under his care. Odwee was acquitted on August 22. Coxton Obic, the officer in charge of Apac Police Station, said the investigations revealed that the girl was 18 years old and that was why the Police acquitted Odwee. He added that the case could be reinstated if the complainants got evidence. The consent age in Uganda is 18.
