The petition is due to be presented to the speaker of Parliament of the Republic of Uganda, Rt. Hon. Rebecca Kadaga, on Wednesday November 20, 2013.


The petition seeks to highlight the plight and challenges facing LRA returnees, obstacles to successful defection, rehabilitation, reintegration, development and effective recovery of LRA affected communities with a view of addressing them.


The petitioners also want Parliament to lobby and take practical measures in favor of the return of all children and people still in LRA captivity including engaging the international community and regional governments to resolve the question of people still in LRA captivity, innocent children born in LRA captivity with unclear citizenry and communities that remain vulnerable to LRA killings, attacks, abductions, displacement and lootings.

More details will be given in the final petition that will be presented to parliament nextweek.
