Museveni picks Oulanyah’s son as NRM candidate for Omoro County MP seat

After the meeting with President Yoweri Museveni, the late Jacob Oulanyah’s son, Andrew Ojok, will be fronted by the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party for the Omoro County MP seat race.

Yesterday, Museveni held a meeting with NRM members who had shown interest in running for the Omoro seat. These included the Omoro LC V chairperson, Douglas Peter Okello alias Okao, Omoro district speaker Richard Bongowat Luganya, Oulanyah’s son Andrew Ojok, and Oulanyah’s former campaign manager, Ben Acellam.

According to sources that attended the meeting, they were reportedly directed by Museveni to stay in their positions.

In one of his recent interviews, Ojok Oulanyah said that he is ready to step up and fill his father’s shoes.

The Omoro County seat fell vacant following the death of Oulanyah on March 20, 2022, in Seattle, USA.

Last week, the Electoral Commission set May 26, 2022, as the date for the Omoro County by-election. The voters’ register update exercise will run from April 14–19, 2022. According to the Electoral Commission Road map, the nomination of candidates will take place from May 12 to May 13 at Omoro District Council Hall. The campaigns will take place from May 16 to 24.
