LIRA, UGANDA: Tekwaro Lango Paramount Chief Eng Dr Michael Odong Okune has urged all his cabinet ministers in their respective capacities to make sure they build peace and unity among the subjects in the chiefdom.

His Majesty Eng Dr Okune was speaking to his ministers in a meeting organised at his palace on Friday, 23rd June 2023, at Senior quarters, Lira City East Division, Lira City.

The Paramount chief emphasized that; “one must use his or her age to build peace because our culture is in our behaviour, the way we live, the food we eat, and the language we speak and we must always portray exactly a good moral behaviour probably matching our age and must be peaceful.”

“Don’t be a clan leader who only praises people but be bold to speak the reality of issues affecting the community you lead. All the writings of the Tekwaro Lango meeting be made in Leb Lango [local language],” the Chief leader added.

Eng Dr Okune further discouraged people above the age of 70 years not to obtain a loan because it is possible that they may not pay.

He also thanked President Yoweri Museveni for visiting Baralegi while addressing the Karimojong security issue at the border district of Otuke among others.

According to the paramount chief, some people have improper behaviour where for example, out of seven points they make in public, only one may be true but the rest will automatically be full of lies.
He, therefore, cautioned them to desist from immoral behaviour but practice peace only.

Florence Kuri-komi, the deputy minister of tourism in the Tekwaro Lango Chiedom congratulated journalists for always standing with them by spreading accurate information whenever they are invited for coverage in the chiefdom.

He thanked those who went for a meeting in Nairobi Kenya for the good trip they made and for fully representing Tekwaro Lango.

Jerome Angena of the Ocukuru-Ongora clan who doubles as the Minister of Lands in the chiefdom warned that the issue of bribes in exchange for employment/work must end in Lango.

Angena said they have learnt that some members in some districts within the Lango sub-region who belong to the District service commission charge people ranging from Two-Five million shillings bribe in a corrupt manner in order for one to get employed which is totally wrong.

Prime Minister Tekwaro Lango, George Ojwang Opota told the meeting that he has planted five hectares of coffee on his farm in Ngeta, Lira City East and encouraged all the different clan leaders to plant more trees and coffee in order to implement commercial agriculture.
