MPs Jovah Kamateka, Regan Okumu, Hamson Obua, Godfrey Kiwanda, among others said that a reparation fund, if set up, will help to address problems of the victims of LRA war in the north.


MPs also said that the fund could be used to compensate victims whose lips, legs and hands were chopped off by rebels.


They said that some victims of LRA rebels need surgery to remove bomb and bullet objects which are still in their bodies.


The Woman Member of Parliament Mitoma district, Jovah Kamateka, appealed to the government to cause the return of children who were born through rape of women by the LRA rebels to Uganda, so that they can get education which is their right.


The Member of Parliament for Aswa County, Regan Okumu, who read the petition on behalf of the victims said that government should convince the United Nations to adequately help in facilitating the UPDF troops in the Central African Republic to flash out LRA rebels who are still committing atrocities against women and children.


The Member of Parliament for Busiro East, Medard Segona, said that government should intensify psychosocial support for the victims of LRA in northern Uganda to ensure counselling for proper settlement in the respective communities.
