HEARING OF PUBLIC CONCERNS OVER THE PROBLEMS CAUSED BY WILD ANIMALS IN TAROGALI PARISH, IBUJE SUB-COUNTY IN APAC DISTRICT:

TAACC is working in Apac, Kole and Oyam Districts to make the issues that affect the community reach the leaders so that they are acted on. The “Voice & accountability” intervention of TAACC is funded by Democratic Governance Facility – DGF. Apart from the 216 trained Independent Budget Monitors that TAACC gets issues from, TAACC also gets complaints directly from the general public and listens to the concerns raised through the local FM radio stations amongst others.

Recently, there has been over whelming calls on UWA and leaders of Apac district by the residents of Tarogali parish in Ibuje Sub County to help them address the threats posed by the crocodiles to the lives of the children and animals of the area. Even the child of one of TAACC’s IBM has been caught and eaten by the crocodile just recently. The detail of the children eaten and, or injured are attached including that of the animals caught and or injured by the crocodiles that seem to get their way from the National Park to the stretch of River Nile where the public fetch water for domestic use and water the animals. TAACC believes that there is need to dialogue and educate the public to get lasting solutions to the problem, given the number of victims so far now eaten (ref. attached).

As a key actor that has the responsibility to educate the public and ensure public safety, TAACC has organized a dialogue aimed at providing a lasting solution to the suffering of the people on the 5th May 2016 at Chakali Trading Centre, Tarogali Parish, Ibuje Sub County. TAACC is therefore inviting you to the dialogue. TAACC will provide light refreshment..

Thank you,

Opwonya Tom Superman.

Executive Director -TAACC.
