Katakwi district leadership has written to Napak and Nabilatuk districts stopping Karimojong pastoralists from crossing into its territory with their livestock.
Katakwi, which borders the two districts, joins Kapelebyong, which banned Karimojong pastoralists from crossing to the district with livestock in search of pasture and water for their animals in October this year.
The Katakwi LC V Chairperson, Godfrey Omolo told media Wednesday that they have also decided to stop Karimojong pastoralists from entering the district with livestock over similar reasons.
Over the years, Kapelebyong, Amuria, and Katakwi districts have been the only places where Karimojong pastoralists would cross to graze their livestock during drought.
Paul Lokol, the Nabilatuk district LC V chairperson, says banning the Karimojong from crossing to Katakwi and Kapelebyong to graze their animals would not solve the problem of cattle theft.
John Paul Kodet, the Napak LC V chairperson called for a stakeholder engagement involving leaders from Katakwi, Kapelebyong, Amuria, and Napak districts.
