The Joint Security Forces have asked the people in the Karamoja sub-region to be vigilant during the Easter Celebrations.

According to the statement issued by police, the general public is informed that Mt. Moroto and Kidepo Policing Regions have in recent times continued to register positive trends of security all over.


This is an attribute of all stakeholders such as the Security forces, Political leaders, Religious leaders, Elders, and women peace groups and therefore they all remain vigilant to avoid circumstances that may backslide Karamoja where it has come from.

Michael Longole, the Mt Moroto Regional Police Spokesperson said that there is a need for the general public to be alert at all levels during the Easter season.


Longole observed that on such big days, there is expected massive movement of people from towns to villages, from villages to churches for prayers and parties on Easter day and the homes will not be fully attended.

He noted that the criminal elements may exploit this advantage and break into houses, stealing young children, and even terrorists may infiltrate to cause mayhem to the people who are beginning to gather for prayers or partying.


Longole said that they have organized foot and motorized patrols on dark spots identified within the urban and village areas.

Meanwhile at least 113 Anti Stock Theft Unit personnel have completed training on handling operations in the Karamoja sub-region.


The purpose of the training was to equip ASTU personnel with adequate skills and knowledge to manage the situation in Karamoja.
