§ 47. Mr. Brockway
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies on what grounds citizens from other areas in Uganda are prohibited from visiting the Karamoja district without special permits.
§ Mr. Hopkinson
Karamoja is a backward and remote district, which is from time to time the scene of sudden outbreaks of inter-tribal fighting and stock raiding. Control of entry is considered essential for the peaceful administration of the district and for the safety of travellers; but I am advised that permits to enter on legitimate business are freely granted.
