The Uganda Joint Christian Council (UJCC) has expressed concern on the method that government will use when compensating all victims or families of the recent riots across the country.
In the national address yesterday, President Museveni made it clear that government will be compensating families of those who lost their loved ones as well as those who were injured as security forces were controlling the riots.
The UJCC Executive Secretary Fr. Constantine Mbonabingi says the country’s poor record keeping might make it very hard to trace and identify these families.
He is suspicious that the money might end up given to wrong people instead of the victims or families.
However, the Country Director for Action Aid Uganda Xavier Ejoyi wants government to provide the general public with full accountability of security killings across the country.
Over 54 lives were lost in the riots across the country as citizens were protesting the brutal arrest of presidential hopeful Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert on 18th November this year in Luuka district where he had gone to campaign.
