Kenya, Uganda agree on border intelligence

By Steven Ariong.

The governments of Kenya and Uganda have agreed to have a joint intelligence team to monitor security at the border between Karamoja region and Turkana County.

The two countries reached the agreement during a peace dialogue organized by Turkana County government held in Moroto district.

The meeting followed the resumption of cattle raids between the Karimojong and the Turkana pastoralists.

Joseph Opio Osot the Resident District Commissioner says government spent a lot time and resources pacifying Karamoja and so it will not look while the region slips into chaos.

He has also appealed to the Turkana country government to emulate Uganda by removing all guns that are in the hands of the Turkana.
