ABOUT 2,565 head of cattle belonging to the Dodoth group in Kaabong have been recovered by the UPDF from suspected Jie warriors during the ongoing operation to seize rustled animals in Kotido.

The 407 Brigade Commander, Lt. Col. Emmanuel Kanyesige, confirmed the developments during the display of the animals recovered hidden in the grazing areas of the Longor jungle in Kaceeri sub-county recently.

“We are on the ground and will make sure all the rustled animals from the neighbouring districts are recovered if they have not been sold,” Kanyesige said.

On the eve of the New Year, suspected Jie warriors attacked Lokodotom kraal in Lokodotom village in Kaabong and raided about 6,000 head of cattle.

The UPDF 3rd Division spokesperson, Capt. Henry Obbo, said the raid had compelled the army to take action because they had left the cattle owners (Karimojong) without any livelihood.
