Museveni urges Omoro People to Fight Poverty

By Melanie Aanyu,

President Museveni has asked the people of Omoro District to direct their energies on fighting household poverty instead of demanding for better roads.

Museveni made the remarks while campaigning for the National Resistance Movement (NRM) candidate in the Omoro County by-election, Mr Andrew Ojok, at Odek Primary School yesterday.

He was reacting to demands tabled by Omoro chairman Douglas Peter Okello Okao regarding the tarmacking of Gulu-Moroto Road.
Mr Okello asked the government to increase funds allocated to the district so that they can revamp the poor road network.

He identified Awere-Awaliwanglobo, Odek-Laking, Acet-Orapwoyo-Lamindadera-Labora, Ajuri-Laminonami, and Lakwana-Yima-Keto roads for being impassable, especially during the rainy season.
Omoro is managing a total of 303kms of roads while the sub-counties manage 583kms.
The president reassured the people of tarmacking the road in future.
