Uganda-south Sudan border residents are bewailing over guns flocking in from juba, worse still another calamity of clean water scarcity is choking the community. They are currently using the same wells with livestock and the water is contaminated with sewage especially in the Lamwo district.
Due to lack of alternative sources on the same well while others are washing clothes, bathing, some are fetching drinking water, which puts them in a great dilemma.
Four out of every five people that cross over from South Sudan have guns, something that has raised great concern among the residents.
Col Rufas Alhaji Charles from South Sudan stated that it is still a great huddle to disarm the population though they are trying all possible means.
Every car moving in and out of Uganda through this border is searched in effort to tighten security though more efforts are still needed.
