Kampala MP Mohammed Nsereko speaking to press at Parliament

Kampala Central Member of Parliament, cialis 40mg Mohammed Nsereko says he has commenced a campaign to push the government of South Sudan to compensate the lives of Ugandans killed in the fighting in the neighboring country.

“For the losses that have been incurred, how does the government of South Sudan compensate, this isn’t the first time our people have lost lives across the borders. If you can tell us the answer to that question, then we shall be happy and glad to participate in ensuring peace in that region as we have always done,” Nsereko noted.

“We are tired of seeing our people being killed with impunity, Uganda financed the entire budget of our troops being there and in return our people are being killed.”

According to the International Affairs Minister, Okello Oryem, a total of over 3000 Ugandans are still trapped in South Sudan, 11 of who have lost their lives since the resurgence of armed conflict at the close of last week.

“We have so far retrieved 5 bodies that were killed from Juba and the 6 who died from other places in the country have not been retrieved,” Oryem noted.

MP Nsereko while speaking to press at Parliament yesterday, regretted the admission of South Sudan into the East African Community (EAC), accusing the young country of having no respect for human rights.
