Makindye West member of parliament Allan Ssewanyana has called for the establishment of the Karamoja fund to benefit the Karimojong who live in Karamoja.

However, Ssewanyana,the area MP promised to engage Parliament on the plight of these Karimojong living in Kampala.
He called upon government to set up a Karamoja Fund to help the Karimojong.
He also demanded for the recognition of Karimojong as legal occupants of Kikaramoja area in Kampala.
“Let us create here another place call Kikaramoja, “he said.
Deo Kasana, the councillor Katwe II Parish said these Karimojong have also greatly contributed to development of their areas.
“They have made another job of making stoves. These charcoal stoves are made by Karimojong which has made our area to develop,” he said.
