Teso Local Leaders Petition Prime Minister over Arrow Boys Salaries

Local leaders in Teso have petitioned the Prime Minister, Professor Apollo Nsibambi, to intervene and speed up salary payments for the Teso based arrow boys' militia.
The arrow boys' militia was formed in 2003 to help the army fight the LRA rebels in Teso. They were later integrated into the reserve force, and entitled to a monthly salary of 60,000 shillings.
The Arrow Boys coordinator, Musa Ecweru, however says that members of the militia group have for the last nine months not been paid their salaries. He says the arrow Boys were last paid in January.
But the Army spokesman, Felix Kulayigye, has dismissed the claims as untrue. Kulayigye says the Arrow Boys militias are demanding for only four months in salary arrears.
