Dokolo, (UG):- The National Unity Platform (NUP) President, Mr Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has called upon voters in Dokolo District to turn up in large numbers this Thursday, March 21, and vote for his party candidate Harriet Ageno in the upcoming Dokolo Woman Member of Parliament by-election.

“I am here in Dokolo to ask each one of you to come in large numbers and make your voice heard through voting and also to stay around and guard your vote,” Bobi Wine appealed.

Kyagulanyi also challenged the voters to hang around and guard against theft of their votes.

The NUP leader was Sunday, March 17th 2024 holding a campaign rally in Angwencibangi Primary School, Dokolo Town Council, Dokolo District which is gearing up to replace its WMP Cecilia Atim Ogwal who died on 18 January 2024.

The former Presidential contender in the 2021 elections reminded people about the extent of the challenges facing everyone in the country and that it was their duty to deliver the nation from the mess.

“For long, Dokolo district in particular and Northern Uganda have been kept in poverty, if you think I am lying look at your roads, hospital and schools. Uganda is very rich but, Ugandans are very poor because all the money they get from our taxes is stolen by the NRM government,” Bobi Wine said.

‘’For now, we need to create a new Uganda where we are all equal before and under the law. You the people of Dokolo need to change the Parliament through right voting,” he added.

The NUP flag bearer Ms Harriet Ageno in her speech promised to stand by the voters in Dokolo by boosting their ability to vote rightly.
