THE Karimojong still have the urge to use guns as a means of livelihood, the Moroto resident district commissioner has said.
Nahaman Ojwee said all disarmed warriors would wish to re-acquire guns if they had their way.
He made the remarks while opening a workshop on the proliferation of small arms and light weapons at Hotel Leslona in Moroto town on Thursday.
â€œDisarmament is not a preserve of security forces. It requires a collaborative effort of the population,â€
Ojwee said there was need to continuously engage the population to change.
The commissioner of Police, Fulgensio Magembe, said: â€œThe proliferation of arms has created a lot of misery to both the people and the animals.â€
He said Karimojong cattle were of poor quality due to insecurity and a bad culture.
