Over 250 district leaders from the nine districts of Karamoja sub-region are set to undergo an ideological orientation program that will take place at the Oliver Reginald Tambo Leadership School in Nakaseke District. The leaders comprise Local Council V chairpersons, mayors, district speakers, Local Council III chairpersons and councilors.
The selected leaders were flagged off at the Third Infantry Division Headquarters at Moroto Army Barracks. While briefing the leaders Brig. Gen. Felix Busizoori, the Third Division Deputy Commander acknowledged the involvement of the leaders in pacifying the Karamoja sub-region and the relevance of the ideological orientation program. “I urge you to take this scheduled program seriously as it’s intended to enhance local leadership understanding skills, mindset change, teamwork, conflict management and harmonisation of methods of work.”
He further echoed that the program package is prepared to suit the Karamoja situation and therefore encouraged leaders to take the opportunity to interact with each other, participate in the discussions and share knowledge that can bring socioeconomic transformation to the Karamoja sub-region. Present were Col. Nelson Ahebwa, the Deputy Chief Political Commissar; Col Sam Ntambirwe, the Deputy Chief of Civil Military Cooperation and senior officers of the division headquarters.
