Am sorry not to be responding to your message but please i beg
you to look into my situation, A a 17 year old orphan,
I was born in in october 1988 in Jinja District to the late Kasauli
Baker and Nakalema Noelina. In 1996 we moved to Gulu District in the
northern part of Uganda where my father had got a job as a truck driver.
In 1999, i and my sister as we broke for the first term holidays we
went home, after threedays we had not seen our Dad thus we inquired from
mummy who told us that he had gone for along trip but he would return
soon. we settled but towards the end of the holidays we still had not
seen dad, we once again asked mum about his where abouts since his phone
was off; that time she broke to us the sad news, she told us that Dad
went missing in April, she told us that he had got a trip to Kitgum a
neighbouring district and since he has never returned. One week later, The
owner of the truck that dad was driving came to our home, he told us
that Dad together with his turnman also arelative were burnt in ambush by
the LRA rebels, he even took us to see the wreckage of the truck and
that was the last from dad.
In the same year 1999 in august i and my siter we left Gulu for Jinja
where our only uncle the late Jjuko lived in Jinja with hope that he
would take us to school, by then i was in primary five. He told us that we
shall go back to school the next year (2000)
Shotly after we had left our Mother in Gulu the rebels attacked the
village and killed many people, others were burnt in their houses, others
were shot and others were slaughtered it was really tragic that time
because, even we were not able to identify our mothers body. All tghe
dead were burried in one place and that is the last i knew of my Mother.
The next year (2000) i began school at St. stephens' primary school in
jinja together with my sister, he suppoted us untll in 2004 when he
died after a long illness. After his death we remained staying at his
place, his wife left us and went to her home village in masaka.
We lived in that house untll january last year when we were chased from
the house by the owner, at that time we had no where to go. I had
missed school for one term. I therefore did some odd jobs and i managed to
rent a cheaper house shared a room for some time untll one of our aunt
took my sister to Kampala where she is up to now.
Me am now living with one of late fathers friend. if you are willing to
assist me you can contact me at; hasnett67 At hotmail.com or mobile

appreciate if you could pass this message on.
