Four Turkana warriors from neighboring Kenya have been put out of action in Moroto after violating a directive by President Museveni banning them from entering Uganda with guns.
President Museveni in Executive Order no.3 issues in May, 2023 directed that Turkana warriors never return to Uganda with guns.
However, according to Maj. Moses Amuya, the acting UPDF third division spokesperson on Saturday said suspected Turkana warriors have continued to sneak into the country while armed with guns to conduct raids, kidnap civilians and soldiers and killing others.
He said suspected Turkana warriors exchanged fire with UPDF soldiers on routine patrol and during the engagement in Saturday, four suspects were neutralized and fire arms charged in Magos parish, Rupa Sub county in Moroto District. END
