Amuriat and Bob Akileng become the first Etesot to challenge President Museveni since he came to power in 1986. Amuriat rides on the shoes of Dr Kizza Besigye, the FDC strongman who has enjoyed a lot of support in the region over the years.

Besigye received the third-highest number of votes from Soroti with 56.9 per cent of the vote in 2016 after Kampala and Wakiso where he polled 65.9 and 59.9 per cent respectively. President Museveni got the highest vote in Katakwi with 63.4 per cent followed by Bukedea 58.6 per cent out of ten districts across Teso Sub Region.

But Peter Ogwang, the Usuk County MP and State Minister for ICT asked Amuriat to observe health guidelines by the Ministry of Health on COVID-19. Ogwang, who was also hosted in the same radio program, acknowledged that NRM and President Museveni still have a lot to accomplish in Teso.
