The Challenge of Reparation in Uganda: The Mucwini Massacre
On the 23rd July 2002, the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) attacked the Mucwini community, killing 56 people. The LRA justified the attack due to one abductee taking one of their rifles and claiming they were from Pajong clan, but were in fact from the Pubec. As a result most of the victims are from the Pajong clan and ongoing reconciliation processes including reparations are ongoing between the two clans to resolve this harm. We met some of the survivors and community members who are still demanding reparations from the government to alleviate the consequences of this massacre.
