The delegation met the Minister of Karamoja Affairs John Byabagambi to resolve issues of cattle rustling and other forms of conflict between the Turkana and Karamojong.

In their resolutions, they agreed to allow the Turkana and Pokot communities to graze their animals in Uganda during drought and also ensure that no Kenyan Pastoralist crosses into Uganda with illegal guns.
