Olanya’s made the call to the clans while distributing blankets and bars of soap to the residents of Bana in Lakang village.
Olanya argued that if the Pukure clan continues to torch their huts and fighting one another, it will bring back the ugly memories of the LRA atrocities.
While meeting over 500 residents of Pukure clan,Olanya called on residents to respect local leaders whom he said are the ones to settle disputes that may arise.
