Paralegals in Koboko and Pader have been actively engaged in tracking all forms of violence against females in their respective localities and identified Rose Oyo (not real name), a mother with a disability suffering domestic abuse from her nephew. The nephew; a soldier with a history of violence, realized that Oyo had chased away his cattle from grazing on her land and gave her two hot slaps on the cheek followed by a death threat, ‘I will return and kill you. Since you do not have money you cannot challenge me by seeking legal redress”.
The Paralegals intervened and encouraged Rose to report the matter to the Police and encouraged her to move somewhere safer. The cattle were destroying Oyo’s crops which were her and her children’s source of livelihood.
