“Please present our issues to president Museveni for the war debt claimants”
The councilor present complain to Gen. Otema that there are 50 groups of cattle keepers in Aswa Ranch, but when unknown people fed on their cattle which went to destroy crops from people gardens, those cattle keepers dragged Pader District Chairman Oringa Larogo, Rwot David Onen Achana II, the Councilor V for Angagura and the LC III of Angagura. Why? The Councilor decries.
Adding that they have been charged by the 50 groups of Cattle keepers for eating 90 cattle, we do not know, Ojok urged.
“When those cattle keepers came in our areas some of them were hiring 100 acres at UGX 2 million now they are claiming to have bought land in these areas, the councilor wondered.
Okot James Kasongo the Councilor for Awere Sub County who is also the Chairman of Bolo Lamac also insisted that Gen. Otema should follow the issues of Acholi War Debt Claimants because every callers who phone in every radio station are complaining that if Col. Walter Ochora was there, the issues of Aswa Ranch, cattle compensation and land grabbing would not be there, Kasongo urged.
“Thus, this means they are asking you to work hard, Rwot Achana has been accused for eating 90 Balalo cattle, and yet Rowt Achana is Acholi paramount Chief.”

Gen. Otema Awany in his reaction says, “For me I don’t know that Rwot Achana, the Acholi Paramount Chief has been accused.”
This very bad, suppose Rwot Achana is before the court what a shame would be, Gen. Otema was shocked.
Gen. Otema says he know that there two groups of cattle keeper authorized President Museveni, “I need to know that.”
Obbo Lazarus come in immediately says they know only two groups in Aswa ranch, the rest of other cattle keepers came on their own, Obbo admitted.
Gen. Otema revealed that government does not refuse to pay Acholi War Debt Claimants, the government wants Acholi War Debts to open their account for verification, and you remember that there have been corruption and fraud, Gen. Otema urged.
Gen. Otema promised to build dormitory for girl child, gave UGX 2 million to the community of Palami, UGX 1 million for boda boda and SACCO UGX 1 million.
He concluded that World Bank will take over from the Uganda Electricity Rural Regulatory Authority who is constructing power line from Aswa dam to Gulu, Pader, Amuru, Agago and Lamwo districts
Richard Todwong says he will forward people’s demand for Atanga district to president Museveni, but argues Angagura community that they should votes sensibly.
“Where is your MP for Aruu North, and Odonga Otto, always when we tell you that you stand with us, when I was here during the by election, it was you my people who let me down.” Todwong asks them.
