Soroti, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | The Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Jacob Oulanyah has urged the people of Teso to unite and work hard to elevate their area.

He was speaking during the 3rd annual Teso Convention 2019 held at Soroti Hotel over the weekend. He said it is time for people of Teso to move from their current position and change the region by doing the basics.

Oulanya also urged the Iteso to stop lamenting about the cattle restocking program and start relying on their hands to improve their livelihood.

He advised the people of Teso and Acholi to discard the dependency syndrome, which is killing people.

He launched the Teso Education Fund and donated Shillings 5 million to its operations.

Capt. Mike Mukula, the former Soroti Municipality Member of parliament in his presentation warned the Iteso to stop mixing personnel issues with development in the region.

He also cautioned the Iteso against fighting each other. Mukula said many people from Teso have missed appointments in government because of being fought by their own.

Peter Lokeris, the State Minister for Energy and Ministerial Development, called upon the Iteso and Karimojongs to unite and do business together.

He said Karimojongs eat sweet potatoes, but depend on supply from Teso.

The convention drew Iteso from Uganda and Kenya.
