President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has mandated the eviction of Balaalo from non-fenced farmlands within the Greater North regions, including Lango, Acholi, and West Nile. The President’s directive, given during a meeting with Okidi residents in Atiak sub-county, Amuru district, instructs the removal of cattle within three weeks.

Emphasizing the recklessness of allowing cattle in areas without proper fencing, President Museveni outlined the orders to local authorities to ensure the immediate relocation of those grazing cows in unfenced regions. He highlighted the need for stringent control over the movement of cattle to prevent damage to crops.

The President also expressed the necessity to handle the situation cautiously, avoiding cultural clashes, and urged leaders to support the development of the region without promoting land fragmentation. He emphasized the need for comprehensive laws to regulate land inheritance and called for the support of dairy industry development in the area.
