The Dokolo North County Member of Parliament, Honorable Paul Amoru Omiat has said he is incalculably disappointed by a team of engineers.

These engineers, according to MP Amoru, changed the Presidential pledge that was intended to construct a fully fledged science laboratory at Dokolo Girls senior secondary.

The construction – which included a dormitory and bathroom was valued at shillings 200 million.

Amoru said he wanted a laboratory to encourage students to study science subjects now that government has also turned their focus to promoting and supporting students pursuing science courses.

He also noted that he will appeal to President Yoweri Museveni to consider giving another support in terms of putting up a fully equipped laboratory at the school.

“When President Yoweri Museveni visited my constituency for my thanks-giving prayer, he [the President] pledged to support the school with shillings 500 million to establish a laboratory,” Mr. Amoru said on Sunday.

He added he would follow up with the President and officials at the Ministry of Education and Sports to ensure that the school gets a science laboratory.

Mr. Amoru said all these at a function organized at St. Francis Xavier Dokolo Catholic Parish to bid farewell to Rev. Fr. James Michael Ebong who handed over to Rev. Fr. Moses Otom.

Rev. Fr. Moses Otom is the incoming parish priest following his new assignment as a formator at St. Paul Kinyamasika national major seminary in Fort-portal.

Amoru said that “God brought Fr. James Michael Ebong to Dokolo to purposely serve the call of spreading the word and true gospel of God to Christians because Dokolo had lagged so much behind in terms of pastoral work.”


He urged Fr. Moses to remain strong because they would endeavor to work collaboratively to ensure activities and legacy left behind by his predecessor is successfully accomplished to the satisfaction of Christians.

Alex Omara Etwop, the LC 5 Councilor of Amwoma sub-county to Dokolo district council said Fr. James Michael Ebong increased the number of chapels under Dokolo parish from 66 to 88 during his reign as parish priest.

Rev. James Michael Ebong commended Catholic Christians for having supported him during his time that enabled him to successfully deliver his tasks.

Equally, Rev. Fr. Moses Otom asked the Christians to maintain the high level of corporation and team work for them to achieve more.
