“Stop Children From Grazing Animals”- Nabilatuk RDC to Parents

By Steven Ariong 

NABILATUK: The resident district commissioner Nabilatuk Jacita Ayo has issued a
directive to all the Karimojong parents to remove their children from grazing livestock and gold mining and advised them to register kids to school.

Ayo has made this directive today during the celebration to mark the liberation day in Nabilatuk play ground. She says despite government effort to construct schools in the region but parents in Karamoja have continued keeping their children away
from school.

More than 100,000 children graze animals instead of being at school in Karamoja region. Ayo said schools  will resume for the 1st term next week and her wish is that all the school going age children attend school.


“Children who are supposed to be at school are the ones grazing livestock in the bushes while others are engaged in gold mining this must be stopped”- Ayo appealed to Parents.

According to Ayo, Karamoja region can only develop if the parents accept to value education and drop criminality especially cattle rustling adding that many children have been killed by cattle rustlers while grazing animals since they cant defend their livestock.

“Let animals be looked after by elders and children be at school,” she further tells parents

She further cautioned district leaders of Nabilatuk against corruption saying whoever tries to frustrate any government project aimed at kicking poverty out of the community will face it rough.

“Whoever misappropriates funds meant for community projects should know that she or he is eating poison and curse because how do you feel seeing members of the community suffering yet government sends resources meant for supporting them but you abuse it”- she asked.

Paul Lokol the district chairperson Nabilatuk said they are planning to launch a go back to school campaign with the aim to mobilize all school going age children.
