John Katumba holds 20 minutes rally in Gulu district, tells supporters he is on a country tour
Uganda’s youngest presidential candidate and recent Makerere University graduate, John Katumba surprised Gulu city dwellers on Saturday when he walked along the main street with two bodyguards and another person carrying his campaign poster.
Katumba who campaigned for less than twenty minutes pledged to promote talent among youths, create equal employment opportunities, free education and establish cooperation for women in order to improve their livelihoods once elected into office.
Katumba spent almost an hour moving along Gulu city’s major roads including Lagara, Coronation and Moroto road.
He addressed a handful of people in front of Gulu main market as they cheered him on. He told the residents that he wasn’t campaigning but touring the country to ascertain the problems people are facing in order to advocate for change.
He decried the appalling livelihoods of Gulu residents, persistent electricity blackout, poor roads, poor education and exorbitant taxation of vendors., which he vowed to tackle once in office.
