Akello Mary is one strong Acholi woman. She likes to keep everyone in check and is never afraid to speak her mind. Her assertive attitude is more than matched by her love for people, however, and she brings a mature and protective leadership to the group.
FAVORITE THING ABOUT NORTHERN UGANDA
“Peace will be the best thing. This war should stop so that we have peace and go back to the villages and live the normal lives we used to live because we’ve lost all our culture. So I think the best thing for Northern Uganda is peace.”
THOUGHTS ABOUT MOTHERHOOD
“I love to have my children around and I want to get them to education to the highest level and I really want to look after them well so in the future, when I’m gone, when I’m out of this world, they’ll be able to stand on their own and be strong and do well.”
