Rosemary Austin Alwoc Ogwal, the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party candidate in the Dokolo woman MP by-election has pledged to focus on promoting tourism in the district during her two-year term in parliament.  

The district boasts two significant tourist sites: one in Kangai town council, where Kabaka Mwanga of Buganda Kingdom and Omukama Kabalega of Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom were captured in 1899 for opposing British rule, and another site called “Komora” in Adeknino sub-county, where the two kings are believed to have settled before their capture.  

Imat Cecilia Ogwal, the former area woman MP and member of the parliamentary sectoral committee on Tourism, Trade, and Industries, had repeatedly advocated for the gazetting of these sites and requested the return of Lango cultural artifacts from a museum in Europe.  

Her daughter, Rosemary Austin Alwoc Ogwal has assured voters in Dokolo that she would carry on her mother's agenda. Campaigning in the Bata sub-county and Agwata Town Council, Alwoc emphasized her commitment to developing tourist sites and ensuring access to education for all in the district.

Riding on her mother’s legacy, Alwoc told voters of how her opponents who lived in Dokolo for many years have made little contribution towards the development of the district.

//Cue in: “Our students should…

Cue out: … dong acako oko.”//

Patrick Oboi Amuriat, the FDC Party president urged the people of Dokolo to elect Alwoc because she is as brave and intelligent as her late mother.

//Cue in: “The person who…

Cue out: ... complete Atat’s work.”//

Oboi, who described Alwoc as a beautiful village girl thanked her for embracing the FDC party just like her mother did. 

//Cue in: “We have experienced…

Cue out: ... of parliament did.”//

Meanwhile, Joel Okao Tema, an ardent FDC supporter advised the people of Dokolo to ignore propaganda currently being spread within the district to taint Alwoc’s image.

//Cue in: “Wun iwinyu wuno… 

Cue out: …  gin yer gi.”//

The candidates are now using the remaining three days for both campaigns and voter education to ensure that their voters do not mistake their signs for other candidates as well as make mistakes.
