In his speech, Obua asserted that he dedicated the first visit, in his new capacity, to Sebei because of the immeasurable contributions the region has made to the country’s sports, where he served as Minister of State.
“This is my first official programme, outside the office in Kampala, after my appointment and delightful promotion to Government Chief Whip of the Republic of Uganda. I chose to come to Sebei because of the outstanding achievements this region has made to Uganda sports, where I formerly served as Minister of State,” said Obua.
The Government Chief Whip deservedly noted that Sebei region that includes the districts of Bukwo, Kween and Kapchorwa, have immensely supported the National Resistance Movement Government hence worthy the first visit.
