“We want a meeting with the president  as elders of Kapelebyong and express our sincerity to him interms of projects  because we are the ones to suffer,” he said.

James Akol another elder said government is busy setting up many projects in  other regions while Kapelebyong is being neglected.

“There could be something wrong going on with the offices tasked to implement these pledges and we want President Museveni to know that they have not done anything, “he said.

” It’s true  all the pledges that president  museveni made during the previous campaigns have not been done and it makes us to face difficult in marketing NRM in Kapelebyong,”he said. End
