N Uganda - March 2006

In Gulu,Lira and Kitgum at the moment, all seems quiet. Plenty of NGOs busying themselves, but rebel activity is all concentrated around Yei, in Sudan.

Anyone looking for a new story? The LRA have turned their attention to attacking and killing Sudanese civilians. 11 killed in a village near Yei last week, and two killed near Juba. No one is reporting this yet, although a journalist I was with a few days ago, who works for the New Vision, is in Yei now with the UPDF, so the story should be out soon.

Travelling in Uganda… Kampala to Gulu and Lira is safe by road, only by day. But roads north to Kitgum and Adjumani etc., should not be attempted even in daylight, unless with armed convoy.

Flights out of Gulu are fairly reasonable – Gulu to Kitgum return is $110.

Michael, I left a message for you at the Acholi Inn, but then at short notice, took a flight to Kitgum. I’ll be back in Gulu on Monday, just for one night. Hope to catch you then if you’re still in town.

Cheers all,

Lee.
