Displaced Persons in Gulu have expressed anger over talk of a new rebel group that is being linked to the Acholi in Diaspora.
Several IDPs who were planning to return to their homes are bitter that some people want to resume war that has destroyed their livelihood for the past twenty years.
The army says that a new rebel group, the Uganda People's Front was launched in 2006 to topple President Yoweri Museveni from power.
Benasio Oloya, a displaced person living in Unyama camps say that whereas he doesn't believe the existence of a new rebel groups, he says any such development would disrupt peace in the region.
While hitting at the broken saucepan he is mending on his verandah, Oloya says he does not believe too that Norbert Mao, the Gulu District LC 5 chairman has any link to the alleged rebel group.
Levy Ocaya, also a resident of Unyama IDP camp say he is angered by the information of the new rebel group. He explains that the emergence of a new rebel group could disrupt the on going resettlement program for the displaced persons.
Ocaya says that he like many people want to return home to resume productive agriculture and forget about the days they lived on hand-outs from humanitarian agencies in the camps.

Cue out: i#to start agriculture at home.
However, the army has said that while there was an intention to establish a rebel group, there is no rebellion and that the public ought not to panic.
Ronald Kakurungu, the UPDF northern Ugandan spokesperson says that they arrested six people who were attempting to set up a training base in Murchison Park and another nine in Acholi sub region.
Kakurungu claims that the suspects allege that they were coordinating the establishment of a new rebel group supported by the Acholi in the Diaspora.
Nine men including, Journalist Patrick Otim, were last month charged in connection to the rebel group.
