Independent Presidential Candidate Gen Henry Tumukunde has rallied
the people of Acholi to pay keen interest in the country’s politics to have an
informed view for a better leader and regime change.
While speaking to his supporters’ in Patongo and Kalongo Town Councils in Agago
district on Wednesday, Gen Tumukunde says the electorate should not sit back
and wait for change but participate in it.
Gen Tumukunde says that come January 14th 2021, the people in Acholi sub-region
should vote without hesitation for their liberation from the current regime
that has been stuck in power for the last 35 years.

Cue out:…a good government.”//
Gen Tumukunde also told the locals that he is in a better position to liberate
them from their untold sufferings resulting from the two-decade Lord’s
Resistance Army-LRA insurgency in the region.
He says the region has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country and
faulted it on the bad curriculum in the education sector.
Gen Tumukunde says once elected as the president, he will bring
back the glory of education that focuses on training and preparing learners for
the career opportunities through introducing Focus Professionals Training- FPT.
He also made an impromptu visit at Lira Palwo Secondary School in
Lira Palwo Sub County where he told students that the country’s future belongs
to them as the majority young people in the country.
He says their future can only be secured if what they are currently studying
prepares them to be job creators rather than job seekers.
//Cue in: “Young people i…
Cue out:…for your selves.”//
Gen Tumukunde is expected to hold campaign meetings later in the day in Omoro
District and Gulu City as he concludes his campaigns in Acholi Sub-region.
