Karamojong warriors to be disarmed

Ugandan Prime Minister Apollo Nsibambi told parliament on Tuesday that Kenya and Uganda are to carry out a joint operation to disarm the Karamojong and Turkana groups, the 'New Vision' reported on Wednesday. "Government is liaising along with that of Kenya, Sudan and Ethiopia within the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) to carry out simultaneous disarmament in this part of eastern Africa and to stop
