Almost 40 years after the death of General David Oyite Ojok, three members of his family are in the running for different political positions in Lango sub region. Linda Agnes Auma, a daughter, is now the official NRM party flag bearer for Lira District Woman MP after winning in the Primaries on Friday, September 4. Her young sister Vicky Atim wants to represent Loro Sub County in Oyam District Council. Unlike Auma, Atim wants to carry the UPC flag. The two are joined by Shakila Among, a granddaughter of Oyite Ojok, who is in another political contest to represent the Youth in Lira City Council.
