KATAKWI – The State minister for ICT Peter Ogwang has on j received a Jerusalem-like homecoming after his ministerial appointment.
Ogwang, Usuk County MP today made his maiden return to his constituency since he was appointed minister in December last year.
The MP’s convoy was sandwiched by a mammoth crowd who waited to receive his at Komolo Bridge-about 5kms from Katakwi town. Overwhelmed by the big crowds, Ogwang came out of his official car and trekked with his voters up to Katakwi town where they made various stopovers to greet their voters.
The climax of it all came when they reached Getom Subcounty where the youth requested him to commission the new NRM office. In the most bizarre way, the youths took Ogwang by surprise when they lifted him up on the roof of the NRM office and got him a seat. The MP with love took up the risky task amidst ululations from the people of Getom who also offered him two bulls in appreciation for his selfless and relentless delivery of services to the people.
The MP addressed people of Katakwi town and Ocorimongin Market before proceeding to address another massive crowd of people in his home parish of Aliakamer.
He preached peace and forgiveness especially to those who were spreading falsehoods about his academic papers with the ill motive to ruin his ministerial appointment. Ogwang also promised to serve all the people without segregation and promised to improve mobile network and internet connectivity in the District and also avail computers for schools.
