operational in July 2018 and the current district interim leadership
is predominantly UPC, including the interim LC5 chairperson, Basil Okello Onac. Mr. Tony Ayo is an NRM member.
“We need to edge out of the old mentality and how things used to be done in the old Apac and come together as leaders irrespective of our political affiliations,” Ayo urged fellow compatriots.
The NRM legislator made the remarks at Inomo Primary school during a function to reward over a hundred of pupils who excelled in the 2018 primary leaving examination.
Ayo gave each of them a new mattress to start their new academic journey as most of them joins senior one today (Monday).
Some of the beneficiaries were pupils with visual impairment from Ikwera Nigri primary School.

encouraged the pupils with visual impairment as he handed them
Inomo primary school emerged the best performing school out of the 57 primary schools in Kwania district.
Out of the 62 candidates who sat in 2018, 35 passed in first grade while 27 passed in Division II.
The school’s head teacher, Molly Ojong who was visibly excited told the mammoth crowd gathered at Inomo primary school playground that the improved performance was a result of a dedicated team of teachers, support supervision from the school management team and those from the Parents Teachers Association (PTA) and parents who willingly pulled money especially for purchasing series of examinations papers.
Molly Ojong and four other teachers drawn from different schools who
produced most number of students with distinctions also received cash
prices from MP Tony Ayo.
Salim Komakech, the acting Chief Administrative Officer Kwania said
the pupils who excelled together with their teachers have demonstrated that it is possible for public schools that benefit from Universal Primary Education can actually excel so long as there is commitment and hard work
