Parliament summons PM over refugees


Parliament Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi has been asked to appear before a House committee to explain the situation of more than 60,000 South Sudanese seeking refuge in the country.

The Presidential Affairs committee also agreed yesterday to tour all refugee camps in Adjumani, Koboko, Arua, Nebbi and Gulu beginning next week to assess the situation.

The PM was summoned following a petition by Adjumani District Woman MP Jessica Ababiku calling for government’s immediate intervention.

“Some refugees came with guns. Others have settled amongst the communities without being scrutinised. The Dinkas are so hostile and there is an inadequate number of policemen to monitor them on a daily basis,” said Ms Ababiku.
