Hon. Minister for Disaster Preparedness and Management, Eng. Hillary Onek, shares a light moment with leaders and residents of Kyangwali Refugee Settlement, after addressing their issues of land conflicts and insecurity.

He ordered Police to arrest any wrong elements causing chaos and sabotaging the resettlement exercise in Kyangwali.

He assured the people that government is committed to investigating any allegations of land grabbing, and all those involved will face the arm of the law.

He also urged the people to desist from blaming every problem on OPM as an office. He said that OPM is a huge office with hundreds of employees, some of whom may be indisciplined, and should be blamed as individuals.

He warned that any staff under OPM found responsible for land problems in Kyangwali after the investigations , will be prosecuted.

We are an independent young journalist association with members in the U.S, Canada and Uganda. 

Our Plan is to avail News, Information and Technologies to remote places, specifically the refugee camps. Our founder realized that the UNHCR and its partners are not investing enough in providing news and information to the refugees making them vulnerable to fake news and rumors, something we are addressing. 

Kyangwali News is owned by Refugee News and Information Africa Limited (RNIA Ltd.). Among other things we are planning to address is the need for eLearning for schools through providing connectivity in the form of WiFi so students can easily surf the web at schools.
