LIRA, UGANDA: Former Erute North MP aspirant Rtd Warrant Officer 1 (WO1) Sam Jimmy Ebong has vowed not to give space for those leaders who are not performing the duties assigned to them by the electorate.
Ebong who was addressing the media on Tuesday at Pacific Grand Hotel in Lira City said some of the Members of parliament have failed to deliver what is expected of them by the electorate.
He said the state of the roads in the area of Erute North and some parts of the Lango Sub Region are in a sorry state and need to be worked on if the voters are to put trust in the leaders they voted for in the previously concluded parliamentary election.
Ebong cited roads Agweng-Aromo which he said have a lot of spots; other roads are Ogur-Ayami-Puranga road among other security roads.
“There are a lot of loopholes in these leaders in some positions in Erute that need to be addressed ever since these leaders were elected they have never done things that were expected of them,” Ebong said, adding that there is also a need for proper representation to the parliament of Uganda and that this mess needs to be corrected come 2026
Ebong further noted that it is his lobbying capacity that will help improve the standard of health Education and livelihood of the people in Erute North
He said the demand for water in the area is too high and more tap water extension is needed to help the community which has been hit by the water crisis and that the people can afford at a lower rate. Ebong said constructing boreholes would also be an option.
He emphasized agricultural productivity by distributing seeds to the people of Erute in order for them to get good yields since a larger percentage of household income in the area is based on Agriculture.
He said his political ambition for Erute North parliamentary seat still stands as he waits for 2026. He disclosed that he is still an NRM and he will still come under the ticket.
Elsewhere in Lira city, the female workers’ representative Sarah Awor Angweri said there are some five officials who have been involved in corruption, and mismanagement of public funds that need intervention from the president.
Much as she didn’t reveal the individual perpetrators, Awor said she is very ready to meet the president and expose the rotten heads/individuals who have turned public money into their personal businesses.
