The former Omoro district Woman MP contestant, Rose Nyapolo has drop some step to the rear in fulfilling her political ambition.

Nyapolo is one of the three contestants battling to represent Omoro Sub County Women to the district council.

In 2016, she contested for Omoro district Woman MP Seat alongside seven
other contestants.

In her new political journey, the former MP aspirant is carrying the Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] party flag. She was formerly an NRM supporter before she defected to opposition party.

Nyapolo, who is in third year studying Bachelor’s Degree in Public Administration from Gulu University, says she is eying for the councilor LC5 seat because Koro Sub-county has not received adequate and sufficient funds allocated in
the sectors of education, health roads among other.

She also says there are other social services needed by her immediate voters in a smaller scope compared to that as a Member of Parliament.

Francis Wadock Awori, the LC5 councilor Koro Sub County in Omoro district says there are gaps in equal distribution of resources to Koro Sub County, adding that other sub counties have double voices unlike Koro sharing a female Councilor with Ongako Sub County.

“There are gaps in the road openings and maintenance,” he added, citing the Lamin Labwor to Abole primary school and Angaba Abole road among other roads that need proper rehabilitation and maintenance.

The race has attracted three candidates including former Labwoch LC3 councilor, Grace Ouma, Irene Adong and FDC’s Rose Nyapolo.

July 17, 2018 is the polling day as per Electoral Commission polling road-map.
