ABSTRACT

This assessment was commissioned by Faculty of social sciences (KIU) as pati of a

paiiial fulfillment of the requirements of the award of a Degree in Public Administration

at Kampala International University. The study envisaged at providing useful data and

information on cattle rustling and their socio-economic impacts on partial economies in

Karamoja region of Uganda. The study sought among other things, to determine the

impacts of cattle rustling on social service delivery, agricultural production, trade and

investment.

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.
