Amuru Police Stuck With A child
Police in Amuru district is still hunting for the parents of a juvenile abandoned at Atiak trading centre more than a week ago. The seven-year-old minor was taken to Police last week by a businesswoman who found him stranded in the cold at the trading centre.
Khemis Otim, the minor told Police that he does not remember his origin and identities of his parents despite being left at the centre by his father. According to Otim, his father asked him to wait for him under a mango tree as he went to drink alcohol but never returned.
Wilbert Opiyo, the officer in-charge of Atiak police station says the Police has no budget to take care of the minor. He says they are discussing a possibility of handing over the minor to an orphanage for better care as they trace the families.
