The County Commissioner of Ezo, Albert Moudie said the two women with four kids were found by the home guard on Saturday in one of the bomas behind Nabiapai open market in Ezo.

He further said that they looked helpless and could only speak one language, which is the Acholi language.

The women said they were abducted back in 2001 in Uganda and have been in the bush for the last 14 years cultivating on large farms in the bush and planting maize and ground nuts.

They further revealed the LRA group is in huge numbers in the Central African Republic.

Fatima who never mentioned her second name said she couldn’t  wait to be reunited with her family back home.

"It has been long i can't wait to see my family members in Uganda whom I was separated from many years ago," she expressed.

Armed attacks blamed on the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in Southern Sudan’s Western Equatoria State have continuously displaced thousands of civilians and undermined food security.
