Must read

Sarah Aguti Nyangkori has been sworn in as newly elected woman member of Parliament for Dokolo District. 

She replaces Cecilia Barbara Atim Ogwal, who died in January 2024.

Mrs. Ogwal succumbed to cancer-related illness at an unrevealed hospital in India, where she had been evacuated for specialised medical care.

Her election was announced by Stephen Ngobi Erikwain, the returning officer for Dokolo District.

In a hotly contested election, she out competed six candidates, including Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Dr. Rosemary Alwoc Ogwal; the National Unity Platform’s (NUP) flag bearer, Harriet Ageno; the Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) candidate Aguti Nyangkori; the National Resistance Movement (NRM) candidate Janet Adond; Dr. Esther Akulo Obat Otad; and Dr. Grace Anna Lalam, both independent candidates.

According to the results, Nyangkori garnered 23,044 votes, followed by Adongo, who polled 14,001 votes, Dr Alwoc 8,138 votes,Dr Akullo 790 and Ageno 727 votes.
