“The 1981-1986 NRA Civil War, shall never be forgotten by Ugandans, but especially we the people of Luwero Triangle whose relatives and friends lost lives and property amidst this bush war!” Said Nakaseke Central County MP Allan Mayanja Sebunya.
The former Speaker of Buganda Youth Council (BYC) told us that, “Thus, we have organised prayers at Kikamulo Sub County Headquarters, Nakaseke Central County in Nakaseke District, to pray for the departed souls.”
NRA rebels launched a guerilla war in Luweero triagle against the regime of President Apollo Milton Obote in contestation of the 1980 General elections which UPM presidential candidate Yoweri Kaguta Museveni said was marred with malpractice, it was not free and fair.
In retaliation, government forces attacked villages were rebels were suspected to be hiding, and killing of people started.
By the end of this war in 1986, a number of people had been killed and many children became orphans. People were homeless, property destroyed and Luweero triangle was brought down.
Hon. Allan Sebunya narrated to this news website how Luweero Triangle will never be the same again, wounds have not yet healed.
That is why they have organised to have prayers on such a day when rebels captured Kampala.
