Lira Resident District Commissioner Milton Odongo has said he is wondering why there is bad blood between him and Health Minister Jane Aceng.
In a meeting with Lango Youth leaders on Sunday, Dr Aceng told President Yoweri Museveni to replace the Lira RDC with a new one. Odongo was also in audience.
In an interview on Monday, Odongo denied reporting the minister or Sam Engola as alleged, adding that he loves Minister Aceng and has a son named after the doctor’s husband because she personally helped his wife give birth during the time he was still the Amuru RDC.
Museveni was meeting NRM youth delegates from Lango sub-region following their botched meeting on November 8th, 2020. All was well until Dr Aceng was invited to welcome the President to address the meeting.
She seized the opportunity to express her discomfort, saying she had no hand in the cancellation of the earlier youth meeting with the president as claimed. Aceng told the president that instead of promoting NRM candidates, the leaders in Lango are pulling them and singled out Odongo.
