The need for peace should override any strategies to end the war in Northern Uganda, the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, Henry Luke Orombi has said.
Delivering his annual Christmas message to the media in Kampala today, Archbishop Orombi said that as a witness to the immense suffering of the people of Northern Uganda he is aware that until the Lord's Resistance Army surrenders, there will not be total peace in the region. He said that when he visited the camps for the internally displaced earlier this month, he observed the fear of people unwilling to return home until rebel leader Joseph Kony leaves the rebellion.

He said the underlying issue should be to ensure that full peace returns to the entire country.
