The Tororo district Councilor for Merikit Sub county Charles Okello Athago has today scolded Tororo County Councilor’s for calling him a traitor.
Last week in a meeting held at Hyena Cave, Tororo County Caucus members disowned Athago accusing him of betraying his own people by accepting bribes from some politicians in Tororo in order to convince others not to push for the division of the district.
However, today in an exclusive interview with our reporter, Athago refuted the allegations saying it is the people of Merikit to disown him come 2021 with their votes but not the Caucus.
He said he belongs to his electorates whom he oughts to consult before making a decision of boycotting any elections.
The councilor also warned Molo Sub County councilor John Francis Olweny and the LC3 chairperson Merikit Sub County against black mailing him during public gatherings saying it is service delivery that matters and not their differences and rumor mongering.
