Members of Parliament from Acholi sub-region and those from the Madi community in West Nile traded accusations today over the violence in Apaa that has led to death and demolition of houses.
Acholi sub region MPs led by the Leader of Opposition Betty Aol accused the first Deputy Prime minister Gen Moses Ali and Adjumani East legislator Mark Dulu from Madi sub region of being behind the violence which led to a bitter exchange between the two sets of MPs.
This was the second consecutive time the issue of violence in Apaa was being raised as a matter of national importance on the floor of Parliament by members of Parliament from Acholi.
On Wednesday speaker Rebecca Kadaga directed the prime minister, Dr Ruhakana Rugunda to present a government statement on the Apaa land conflict that has left hundreds homeless.
On Thursday MPs from Acholi insisted that government tables the report after reports emerged that over 150 huts had been burnt by some UPDF officers and several left injured.
The fire-spitting legislators also accused Moses Ali and Duru of being behind the UPDF operations in Apaa that has caused the current atrocities.
But Duru, who was in the house denied the claims.
The situation compelled Kadaga to order government to provide Apaa residents with adequate security in addition to providing them with food.
