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.

“Disarmament is not a preserve of security forces. It requires a collaborative effort of the population,”
Ojwee said there was need to continuously engage the population to change.

The commissioner of Police, Fulgensio Magembe, said: “The proliferation of arms has created a lot of misery to both the people and the animals.”

He said Karimojong cattle were of poor quality due to insecurity and a bad culture.
