The Won-Nyaci of Lango and president of the Lango Cultural Foundation Yosam Odur Ebii is very disappointed with the political leaders in Lango sub region. He finds them ‘anti development’ and blaims them for a wrong trend in political behaviour.
Odur is disappointed because the Lira district local government is delaying to hand over the authority of cultural land to the cultural leaders under his leadership. He also bitter because the political leaders have failed to raise money to build his palace. Yet his is supposed to reside at the cultural palace in the cultural lands. He accused MP’s for failing to mobilize development and most of the time failing to attend the general Lango meeting.
Won-Nyaci is also not happy with the trend of politics in Lango sub region most especially in Lira district which is full of hatred and segregation. This led to untimely death of the vice chairperson Tony Ogwang Adwari. Most of the councillors of the Uganda People’s Congress Party (UPC) did not attend him when he was at sick bed.
MP’s want apologies
Wakili Okello, the culture minister in the Lango cultural Foundation, when officiating at the meeting to organize the fund raising to by a van for the office of the youth in Lango Cultural Foundation, also blasted MP’s and district officials for keeping a distance. The attack on MPs did not go down well with most legislators in the region. Some are threatening to boycott the institution if they do not get an apology.
