The Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Anita Among has urged locals in Omoro County to consider backing Andew Ojok Oulanyah, the son to the deceased speaker Rt. Hon. Jacob Oulanyah.

In a speech that was attributed to her as delivered by NRM mobilizer Rose Mary Sseninde, Among told Omoro locals not to forget the fateful day NUP supporters in the diaspora staged protests just outside the hospital facility  Seattle where Oulanyah was bedridden.

“Such people who wish death for others do not have any moral authority to even campaign here. NUP is an evil party full of uncultured people,” she reportedly said. “If you vote for NUP, you will miss out on service delivery. It is better for you to vote an NRM candidate who will directly table your issues to the president,” Sseninde added.

Meanwhile, the NRM head of communications Emmanuel Dombo Lumala says they will not relent till Andrew Ojok wins the by-election at all costs.

“This is not something to even debate about. It is a must win for NRM. We have to bring it home,” Dombo says adding, “We will not leave Omoro till the NRM gets this victory. We are in the lead. NUP stand no chance. I even laugh when I see them campaigning here.”

NUP fronted Simon Tolit Anyuk, a veteran politician in Omoro who formerly belonged to FDC. The NUP party dispatched a team to Omoro to help canvass for support for their candidate. Our sources on ground say the locals are already embracing Tolit on grounds that they cannot consent to monarchism. Some perceive the installation of the late Oulanyah’s son as a direct endorsement of hereditary rule.
