Alur Kingdom has petitioned the FUFA Drum Organising Committee requesting the creation of a separate Alur province to be carved out of the West Nile Province.

Prince Lawrence Opar Angala, the prime minister of Alur Kingdom, conveyed this request in a June 05, 2023 petition addressed to Rogers Byamukama, the chairperson of the FUFA Drum Committee.

He explained that their request is aimed at enhancing inclusion, participation, and visibility of the competition among the people of West Nile. 

"We expect an opportunity for two provinces in the West Nile sub-region to improve inclusion, participation, and visibility of the competitions amongst the people of the West Nile,” Prince Angala noted. 

He explained that the West Nile Province encompasses diverse communities with various languages, resulting in challenges in communication within the dressing room.
