In Northern Uganda, four people have been killed in two separate incidents
allegedly carried out by individuals from the host communities.
The camp chairman of Koboko, Aringu Peter, says a man and child were shot
with an arrow at a riverside.
In a separate incident, a woman and her child died of suspected water
poisoning. Mr Aringu says the incidents happened last week.
When contacted, the UNCHR spokesperson in Uganda, Charles Taxley said the
agency is not aware of the incidents.
According to him, the host communities have been hospitable and are living
peacefully with South Sudanese refugees.
“By and large what we see, the refugees and the host communities are living
side by side peacefully,” Mr Taxley told Eye Radio. “The generosity of host
communities in Uganda has been incredible.”
He further said the UNCHR is working with the Ugandan authorities on
setting up police posts in all the camps to resolve misunderstandings.
