I've been neglecting this strange condition. Via Uganda Radio Network: Acholi Chiefs Demand Report on Nodding Syndrome. Excerpt:
Ker Kwaro Acholi, the Acholi cultural institution has asked government to release its findings on the causes of nodding syndrome, a mentally and physically disabling condition that attacked hundreds of children in Northern Uganda.
Okin Polly Phillips Ojara, the Prime Minister of Ker Kwaro Acholi said the delay in releasing the findings is disturbing. He was speaking to families of the affected children in Tumangu village in Akwang Sub County in Kitgum district.
Okin said that although the Center for disease Control (CDC) conducted thorough investigations on the mysterious health condition, very little information has been released to the affected communities about the disease. Even the fate of children taken to America from Lamwo district for medical examination has remained unknown, Okin added.
