Ambassador Moto tasks youth to embrace commercial farming


Ambassador Julius Peter Moto, the Oyam North parliamentary candidate, has urged youth to engage in commercial farming in order to improve their level of living.

Moto was addressing his consultation meeting rally with the NRM party delegates in Akwangi parish in Iceme Sub County on Monday 12th/June/2023, where he said that the youth should not just sit and wait begging from the government because people in all parts of the country are yawning for government donations.

He claims that fighting for another tractor to supplement the one he already has will benefit the struggling youth much in their transition from subsistence to commercial farming.

He stated that he will also concentrate on agriculture because it is the backbone of the community in Oyam and Uganda as a whole.

“It will not be a bad thing if I bring you at least one tractor in Oyam North constituency, but keep in mind that every part of the country wants tractors, but one would be fair for this people.” Our youth must work harder and transform their life. “We should not only go to the garden and plant for food, but also to earn money to send our children to school,” Moto urged.

He stated that for several years, people have been complaining about low yields, despite the fact that most people remain relaxed when cultivating and planting seed before they are ready for planting.

One of the delegates, Betty Ogwal, begged Moto to pay special attention to persons with disabilities and those suffering from HIV/AIDS.

Mr. Levi Okello Oula Gozwire, a staunch NRM supporter from Aleka, has cautioned NRM party leaders from the ground up to cease sidelining and preventing others from joining the party.

He stated that the NRM is an old huge party that accepts everyone regardless of party, religion, or culture. He noted that the by-election is a very rare occurrence in the Lango Sub Region, so caution is required.

Eleven people had indicated interest in the role, with two withdrawing yesterday Monday during the party gathering at the former Oyam boma site.
