genesis of his political career will be best suited for the launch of his
historic journey in politics. He was speaking during a radio Talkshow in Soroti district last evening.

consented to his request and will be in Soroti to prepare for the campaign
where FDC Party will also unveil its Manifesto.

Cue out...from Soroti.”//
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
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.
