Field data was collected using structured questionnaires and key infonnants interviews
were also conducted with government administrative personnel such as RDC, CAO,
SCAOs and Parish chiefs, District peace and development committees, civil society and
community leaders and the warriors. Qualitative and quantitative methods of sample
selection were also used. Simple random sampling was used to select the respondents in
the three counties of study-Pokot, Pian and Chekwii counties in Nakapiripirit district. The
quantitative size was Forty ( 40).
Among the key findings, the study found out that competition over access and control of
scarce resources underlies most of the conflicts in Karamoja. Resource use conflicts are
many in areas that have water and pasture as communities in the neighborhood fondle
over usage and ownership rights, making such areas violence hot spots. In conclusion, the
assessment inferred that rampant cattle rustling violence has had diverstating impacts on
social and economic status of affected communities and that the roots of this conflict are deep and intertwined and will need patient but conce1ied efforts by all actors to put out.
