Gewaltsame Entwaffnung der Karimojong-Nomaden

Laut Berichten von Menschenrechtsorganisationen geht Armee mit besonderer Härte gegen die Viehzüchter vor - Dürre verschärft Konflikte um Ressourcen

Göttingen - Bei Konflikten um Wasser und Weideland sind im Norden Ugandas in den vergangenen sechs Monaten mindestens 118 Karimojong-Nomaden ums Leben gekommen, unter ihnen viele Kinder und Frauen. "Aufgrund der anhaltenden Dürre konkurrieren gerade in der verarmten ugandischen Region Karamoja einzelne Gruppen von Viehhirten mit wachsender Gewalt um Herden, Wasser und Weideland," erklärte Ulrich Delius, Afrika-Referent der Gesellschaft für bedrohte Völker (GfbV). mehr...

Ein ganzer Landstrich im Nordosten Ugandas vertrocknet - Ausweg Bodenschätze?

09.08.2010 - Das Parlament

Es ist schon dunkel in Ugandas Hauptstadt Kampala, nur an der zentralen Kreuzung herrscht noch Betrieb. Kaum halten Autos, stürmen dutzende Straßenkinder die Fahrbahn und betteln um ein paar Schilling. Die dunkle Farbe ihrer Haut, die Tätowierungen um die Augen verraten: Es sind Kinder aus Karamoja, dem Armenhaus im Nordosten ... mehr

Uganda army accused of Karamoja torture abuses
17.08.2010 - BBC

A Uganda MP has accused soldiers of carrying out torture and killings in a campaign to disarm the arid north-eastern Karamoja region, where cattle-rustling is common. Francis Adamson Kiyonga told the BBC an elite unit of troops was targeting civilians and at least 15 people have been killed since April. He said some victims had had their teeth pulled or been nearly castrated ... mehr

Uganda Government News: Uganda soldiers raids Kenya
30.08.2010 - ug pulse

Following the killing of three soldiers of Uganda Peoples Defence Forces in Karamoja last week by the suspected Kenyan Pokot warriors, Uganda troops have raided Kenya. Suspected Kenyan Pokot ambushed a vehicle belonging to Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS) and injured one official, killing the three soldiers on Nakapiripirit - Namalu road in Karamoja during the scuffle. The armed Pokot allegedly killed the Ugandan soldiers as the warriors were driving raided cattle to Kenya ... mehr

Collective punishment cannot deliver a peaceful Karamoja
01.09.2010 - Independent

There is no easy way out of the spiraling brutality that confronts the Karimojong civilians today. As darkness deepens over Karamoja, the NRM government continues with its brutal “disarmament programme,” oblivious to the suffering of the Karimojong. Sadly enough, while this scenario continues, it is business as usual for Ugandans and the rest of the world ... mehr

Foraging and Fighting
Community Perspectives on Natural Resources and Conflict in Southern Karamoja


By Elizabeth Stites, Lorin Fries and Darlington Akabwai

Seiten: 36
Erscheinungsdatum: August 2010

Karamoja - Foraging and Fighting.pdf

This joint publication by the Feinstein International Center and Save the Children in Uganda examines the perspectives and experiences of communities in the southern Karamoja region of Uganda regarding natural resources and conflict. The study set out to better understand local views on this topic in response to the assumption in policy circles that resource scarcity or competition drives the conflict in this pastoral and agro-pastoral area. We found that while sites of natural resource exploitation are often insecure, respondents in the study population did not attribute this to direct conflict over the resources themselves. Rather, violence is common in these locations because opposing groups are most likely to come into contact with each other at these sites. On the flip side, respondents stressed that peace allows for better sharing of resources and better management of resource scarcity in times of stress or hardship ... mehr

Human Rights in Karamoja
30.09.2010 - Uganda Media Center

The story that appeared in the media recently that showed Kenya warriors handing over guns to Ugandan officials provides an insight into the stories for which the Uganda Peoples Defense Forces (UPDF) is being damned for their role in the Karamoja disarmaments process. In the story, three guns and cattle were which had been stolen from Uganda were handed back to the Ugandan authorities, who will in turn hand over the animals to their respective owners ... mehr

Karamoja still insecure - report
05.10.2010 - New Vision

The army and the Police have began implementing a new phase of the disarmament programme as the security situation in Karamoja remains volatile with more ambushes and cattle raids. The UN office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) last week issued a report saying aggressive activities by illegally armed Karimojong were persisting [...] The report stated that humanitarian workers were among those targeted in the ambushes and that the UN is limiting the travel hours for its vehicles along the Abim - Kotido road [...] The disbandment exercise, the army said, had been launched in Moroto, Nakapiripirit, and Napak districts and would be rolled out to other districts ... mehr

Uganda’s army under scrutiny for rights abuses in Karamoja
10.10.2010 - The East African

Suddenly, the Uganda Peoples Defence Forces find themselves at the centre of controversy. The force is being accused of playing a lead role in perpetrating gross human rights abuses including murder and extortion. The theatre this time is not in northern Uganda where the army spend decades fighting insurgency nor is it in the wilderness of Congo, Central African Republic, or Southern Sudan in pursuit of Joseph Kony and his rebels. The stage has shifted to Karamoja — the land of warrior nomads, the Karimojong, where in the 1990s, the army started a disarmament campaign. The Karimojong had been terrorising the region, neighbouring districts and even crossing into Kenya and Sudan, on deadly cattle raids ... mehr

More cows, fewer AK-47s
John Newton talks to the priests changing the ways of Uganda’s war-ravaged north

18.11.2010 - CatholicHerald

The Karamoja region in north-eastern Uganda is plagued by lawlessness, disease and conflicts between armed tribes which routinely carry out raids on their rivals’ cattle herds. White Fathers missionary Fr Zacharie Sorgho from Burkina Faso wanted to leave as soon as possible when he was posted to a mission station in Moroto, one of Karamoja’s five districts, during his novitiate. He said: “At first I felt insecure… I was scared, but I was also anxious to know them, their way of life, their traditions and customs.” But after his ordination he was sent back to work in the isolated region in the grip of semi-nomadic tribes, the Karamojong. Night-time attacks by groups of 50 to 60 tribal warriors armed with AK-47s, who seized the cattle of neighbouring tribes, were frequent occurrences in the area ... mehr

The hidden treasures in Karamoja
21.11.2010 - Daily Monitor

To many Ugandans, Karamoja is synonymous with cattle rustling and poverty. At one time it was rumoured that when seeds were given to Karimojong to engage in agriculture, they instead first roasted them before they could plant them. All this was allegedly meant to discourage authorities that were interested in introducing agriculture to the region. Instead many Karimojong prefer looking after their animals. But behold: As Joseph Miti writes, the region has another potential. A number of mineral deposits are said to exist and its a matter of time that they will be exploit to the benefit of the poverty stricken region ... mehr

Uganda: Lessons from the 'Wild East'
22.11.2010 - Guardian

Lokwii Nakoru's husband was killed as he clambered out of his hut. The raiders came at one in the morning to the women's manyatta, a clutch of thatched structures huddled behind barricades of brushwood and thorn, outside the town of Kotido in the Karamoja region of north-east Uganda. "The old man heard some noise outside," she explains, sitting close to a conical wickerwork granary, a rubber fanbelt worn as a necklace above her bare breasts. "As he came out of his hut he was shot dead." ... mehr

Karamoja cattle raids rising, says report
22.11.2010 - New Vision

CATTLE raids in Karamoja region increased in the last two months, according to a report by the office of the United Nations Coordinator of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) in Uganda. Napak and Moroto districts accounted for three quarters of all 20 incidents documented by the UN Department of Safety and Security [...] UNOCHA reported that road ambushes also persisted in the last two months, particularly affecting Abim, Kotido and Nakapiripirit districts.
