Members of Parliament from the heart, drug http://cippico.com/wp/wp-includes/class-wp-walker.php the beginning and the biggest sufferers of the two decade northern war – Acholi sub region – yesterday boycotted the meeting with the International Criminal Court`s Chief Prosecutor, approved Fetou Bensouda.

Ms. Bensouda who is here for a five-day visit, made her first appearance at Parliament yesterday where she met the national assembly speaker, Rebecca Kadaga and later with selected Members of Parliament and ministers mainly from the northern region and Teso sub region that were affected by the brutal operation of Lord`s Resistance Army.

All the MPs and ministers selected to meet Bensouda eagerly made it at exactly 11:30 and patiently waited for 30 minutes in order not to miss the near lifetime opportunity to have a face to face chat with world’s court prosecutor.

Finally at 12:20 Bensouda’s team was ushered in to the closed door venue where the meeting took place for about an hour.

However it was a shocker for members to realize that none of the Acholi sub region MPs who would have been the first to enter the venue, South Committee room second floor, showed up.

“Yes, I for one was so much surprised not to see our brothers and honorable colleagues from Acholi who would have been the ones to lead us in this. Indeed this was a worthwhile meeting and a milestone that might only repeat itself a decade to come and I didn’t expect them to miss this.” One of the MPs from Teso sub region said.

Relentless ChimpReports went ahead and dug out the original list of the said selected members of Parliament to meet the Hague’s based court chief, to confirm if the Acholi sub region members were invited or not.

More surprisingly, the first name on the list was Aswa county (Gulu district) MP, Reagan Okumu who is also the Commissioner of Parliament. Reagan did not appear or send a representative given his capacity as the Commissioner with an upper hand in the August house and efforts to reach him were futile as his office on 5th floor remained closed for the rest of Friday and his known phone numbers did not go through.

It is also not clear why the list signed by the Parliament’s Clerk Lane L. Kibirige had only one Acholi Sub region MP name while others like Lango sub region had three, Teso sub region five, West Nile three and generally other regions of Uganda represented by Stephen Tashobya of Kajara county and Abdu Katuntu of Bugweri county.

Most of the Acholi people mainly believe in a bitter traditional forgiveness known in local language as “Mato Put” and prosecuting the LRA suspects at The Hague is widely believed as a counterproductive measure.

All the five LRA commanders indicted by the ICC including its leader Joseph Kony are from Acholi sub region. One of them ‘Mag. Gen.’ Dominic Ongwen is already in ICC custody facing multiple charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity.
