The Teso cultural leader, Emorimor Augustine Lemukol Osuban, has denied reports that he asked President Yoweri Museveni to disarm the Arrow Boys militia.
The Emorimor was early this week quoted by the media, requesting the President to disband and disarm the Arrow Boys. He allegedly said that the militia men were turning their guns against the innocent civilians in Teso region.
The report has sparked off criticism against the Emorimor. Several people in Teso region have accused the Emorimor of failing to appreciate the role played by the militia in defending Teso against the Lord's Resistance Army rebels.
However the Emorimor's spokesperson, Source Opak, dismisses the report as baseless. He says that the Emorimor did not make such a request, because he was not given an opportunity to speak when the President visited Teso last week.
