Incumbent Members of Parliament from different constituencies in
Acholi sub-region are pleading with their voters to re-elect them during the
2021 polls to enable them to accomplish unfinished tasks.
The MPs include those who were elected in 2016 and are serving
their first term of office while others are serving for more than a term under
different political parties or independent ticket.
Lucy Akello, the Amuru District Woman MP who is contesting on the FDC
party ticket and serving her first term in Parliament says if granted a new
mandate, she will continue expanding village savings and loan association to
alleviate poverty among the women.

Cue out...five years."//
Lyandro Komakech, the Gulu Municipality MP (DP) who is contesting for Gulu City
West Division says he managed to raise two Bills during his first term in
Parliament that includes the National Legal Aid Bill and the Human Rights
Protection Bill. Komakech says he also raised two motions; the first one about
the abducted mothers and their children born in captivity which compelled the government
to earmark 20 billion shillings towards their resettlement and capacity

Simon Oyet of Nwoya County (FDC) in Nwoya District who was first elected in
2006 says his desire to advocate for more commercial farming in his
constituency was interrupted in 2011 when he lost the election but now wants to
accomplish the task in a new mandate he is seeking.
//Cue in: "Nwoya has the...
Cue out...of development."//
Anthony Akol (FDC), the Kilak North MP, says that he is seeking a
new mandate because he suffered several suspensions from the August house which
limited his debate any other legislative roles which were compounded by the
deadly traffic accident he was involved in.
//Cue in: "I have been...
Cue out...struggle for the."//
Ronald Reagan Okumu, the Aswa County MP who has been at the helm
of parliamentary leadership for the last 25 years says that his new mandate
will concentrate on effective leadership for the people of Acholi.
