Aruu county MP Odonga Otto has questioned the criterion that was used to recruit Ugandan Soldiers in Southern Sudan saying that only Acholis and Langis are dying in Sudan.
The government sent the Uganda People’s Defense Forces to Sudan when last month saying that the soldiers were to help in the evacuation of Ugandans from the embattled country.
Otto told journalist in a press conference at parliament that the forces were deployed in Sudan in a sectarian nature and that they targeted people from the North and West Nile who have not even recovered from the LRA insurgency.
Otto says that the families who lost their loved ones in Sudan war are not being told that they died of accidents and not allowed to view their bodies’. He wants the family members to be compensated for their loved ones.
