Uganda, Kenya move to build cross border primary schools.

By Steven Ariong.

The governments of Kenya and Uganda have resolved to build primary schools along the Kenya Uganda border to help the pastoralist’s children get access to education.

The two governments made the decision last week during the cross border peace meeting held in Moroto district.
John Byabagambi the minister in charge of Karamoja affairs said building joint cross border schools would also help to cement the relationship between the Karimojong pastoralists and their brothers the Turkana.

Currently Karamoja region is hosting more than 90,000 Turkana pastoralists who crossed with their children and livestock in search of water and pasture.
The pastoralists are in the areas of Moroto, Kotido and Kaabong.
