Ker Kal Kwaro Acholi has expressed concern over groups of women, who were abducted during the insurgency when they were teenagers and are now struggling to reintegrate into their societies with their “fatherless children.”
He said that after their return from captivity, the former abductees are finding it very difficult and arduous to reintegrate back to families.
Rwot Lugai noted that both the women and their children were being shunned by their families and stigmatized by their own communities because of the perceived roles they played in the rebellion.
He added that while these children were still in captivity, the majority of parents were wishing for their safe return but now that they are home, they have turned against them.
Rwot Lugai expressed fear over the children who were born in captivity whom he said may become a problem in the future if not fully integrated into the community; since the majority do not know their fathers’ clan besides being landless.
