Julius Okwera: A Survivor’s journey through pain, despair and hope!

There is nothing more powerful in life than a resilient human spirit and resolve. Mzee Julius Okwera’s story demonstrates why. Okwera a male survivor of rape from Northern Uganda was a victim of the infamous “tek-gungu” or “bend over” a term used by the locals in northern Uganda to describe the rape of men by some soldiers of the then National Resistance Army (NRA), current Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF) in the early 1990s. Okwera is one of the many victims/survivors supported by the Refugee Law Project (RLP), under its Conflict, Transitional Justice & Governance (CTJG) programme.
