Kole—25, June 2020: Preparations for the 2021 “scientific elections” have started with different aspirants vying for local to higher elective positions, showing interest and informing their voters of their intentions.

As political pundits are saying, the forthcoming elections might be the most challenging elections ever held in Uganda. This, some pundits say, might not favour the unpopular-first-timers in the race.

Ishaa Otto Amiza, who’s the former Oyam South MP, and now one of the political commentators with a focus on Lango politics, told this online publication recently that the scientific elections “might favour incumbents” who are ever bribing votes.

It is widely known that majority of voters across Uganda are now annoyed after being left out for four years by those they elected in the 2016 polls to represent them either in Parliament, District or Municipal councils, among others.

This now gives hope to new aspirants vying for different political offices in the coming polls.

In today’s edition, we bring you one aspirant many had thought would not take any political lane. Although with an administration background, he has been putting his energies in promoting education, hospitality and business.

Bonny Okello Alele—is the contender.

Asked what inspired him to vie for Kole district LC5 chairmanship in the forthcoming elections, Mr Alele outlined eight (8) key points focusing on service delivery.

  1. Upholding community rights. What is planned for the wanahanci should reach them and also making their voices to be heard.
  2. Promoting quality education system in Kole by offering refresher courses to teachers, recruiting more teachers, classrooms constructions, establishing Kole District Education Printing Unit to print exams and other related education materials for P5, P6 and P7.
  3. Promoting health sector for better service to the people of Kole and beyond.
  4. More roads’ construction and good maintenance system.
  5. Sufficient budget allocation to the agriculture sector; promotion and strengthening of cooperatives and individual farmers.
  6. Good working relations between leaders, wanahanci and local government.
  7. Empowering women, youth, elderly and Persons with Disabilities through groups and associations (SAACOS).
  8. Reviving cultural institution through establishment of museum aimed at educating current generations of past events, among others.
