Karamojong attacks have affected schools and learners, caused death, hunger and displacement in the selected primary schools of Ngarirun parish. A researcher concluded that though Karamojong attacks have affected selected primary schools of Ngruirun parish, government has intensified forceful disarmament of Karamojong and so everybody should be encouraged in peace initiative for the future of Ngariam parish- Katakwi district.
