'We too plenty here'

One fourteen-year-old girl wey be Tabu Sunday tell BBC say too many people don dey her school because of the refugee matter; right now na 200 students dey one class.

"We too plenty here inside school. When the teacher dey teach, other people dey make noise, and we no dey understand wetin dem dey teach. Me I want become doctor, so dat when person sick, or woman need to born pickin, I go fit help," Sunday tell BBC.

For some of the Uganda districts wey share border with South Sudan, na refugee plenty pass even Ugandans sef.

All this one dey cause small tension, na wetin Godfrey Byaruhanga, the Commandant for Palorinya Refugee Camp tell BBC.

"If you enter health centre where medical worker suppose look after ten people for one day, now dem fit dey take care of 20-30 people. Where person suppose come, pick im water for one minute; now you go reach tap, begin see 20 jerry cans for line. Na dis kind pressure I dey talk about,"Byaruhanga talk.

United Nations, UN, say dem don dey beg for $674mn to handle this matter, but na only 20% of the money dem get for hand. Dem say e go better if the palava and war for South Sudan end soon, because the country neighbours wey be Ethiopia, Kenya, the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Central African Republic and Uganda dey really struggle to cope.

The UN don dey ask for $700 million to take care of South Sudanese refugees in Uganda. But dem say na only 20 per cent of that money dem don get.

As plenty people dey suffer, the whole world dey call for peace inside Sudan. But the two persons wey dey lead the fight for South Sudan's civil war; President Salva Kiir and his former deputy, Riek Machar, no dey even see face to face for one year now.

Uganda dey try well well for refugees as e dey provide dem with some kind settlement arrangement.

E dey give dem small plots of land for where dem go fit plant food crops like corn and beans.

Humanitarian groups too dey try provide food for dem. But as plenty South Sudanese dey enter Uganda everyday, e no easy to cope. Sometimes food no dey dey enough.
