THE TEGLA LOROUPE CROSS-BORDER PEACE RACE 2017
As always, the Peace Race is a combination of events beginning with dialogue forums a day earlier before the 10km run. This year however, a 10km peace walk was flagged off and led by Ambassador Tegla Loroupe herself, leading hundreds of reformed warriors who carried the symbolic peace torch in turns.
This year, the dialogue forums proved as vital with many issues being brought forward. Increased cases of cattle theft, hunger, and infringement by other pastoralist tribes on each other were just but a few of the many issues raised. In the end, TLPF, reformed warriors and the Moroto Region leaders agreed to set up measures to prevent the looming conflict.
