I will not accept any musician or dancer to come and cause problems here, Lira RDC tells Bobi Wine not to go to their area

Lira RDC Milton Odong has passed a warning to opposition leaders, in particular, those from ‘People Power’ who want to go to Lira in the name of seeking political support.

While addressing a congregation at the launch of the police brass band’s branch for Lango sub-region at Coronation Grounds, Lira RDC Milton Odong stated that National Resistance Movement (NRM) has brought peace to the country something, no other party can accomplish.

“The peace brought by NRM government to this country is irreversible,” Lira RDC Milton Odong said before adding that he will not allow peace in his area to be disturbed by Kyadondo East Member of Parliament, Robert Kyagulanyi and his party colleagues.

“I am chairman of security in this district and I will not accept any musician or dancer to come and cause problems here. Musicians who want to cause problems shall be sent to bars where people sing and drink provided they follow the law and rule of the game.”

Meanwhile, Milton Odong implied that as the area’s RDC, he will work to protect the interests of the government in power since NRM also made him a leader for his people.

Furthermore, RDC Milton Odong said that by keeping NRM in power it means he will also remain employed and not go on the streets begging for financial support.

“I have to pass the message and if their agents are here, they should know I am here ready to protect the interests of the government in power and not the one in waiting,” he said.

“The work of the RDC is to protect the interests of the government. I will not allow anyone to come and grab power from me and I become jobless. I don’t want to go to the streets,” he added.

Besides, he also thanked NRM for enabling the construction of the Lira main market citing that it is one of the reasons he sees the upcoming 2021 presidential an easy battle for them.

“I am very sure even in 2021 there is going to be no problem. Elections will be free and fair basing on good things this government has done to the people like the construction of the Lira main market,” he said.

Meanwhile, in Hoima elections for their Member of Parliament representative are already underway.
