Last week ,the Langi community held a three – day prayer session which ended with forgiveness to the leader of the Lords Resistance Army ,Joseph Kony by the Lango paramount chief .
Mr Yosam Odur forgave the warlord for his atrocities like abductions and murders and offered to give him land to resettle with his family when he returns to leave peacefully in Uganda.
“The people of Lango and Acholi are well known for our forgiving nature and struggle for peace in the country but [we] were disorganized by the LRA war that targeted innocent people,” said Chief Odur.
“Now am calling upon Joseph Kony to stop fighting and am even ready to offer him land for settlement.” He added
The prayers were organized by Lango religious leaders to give people of Lango and other tribes in Uganda time to repent to God for the wrongs committed by the country’s forefathers since independence.
Hundreds of Christians, cultural leaders and politician from around the country attended the prayers at the Mayor’s Gardens in Lira .
