The Ugandan ambassador to Kenya who doubles as the Tororo district NRM vice chairperson Phoebe Otaala has revealed that she is set to form a women association composed of women council members to demand for jobs in the existing industries in Tororo district.
Otaala made this appeal yesterday while delivering shillings 100,000 to the NRM parish elected council leaders as facilitation for the fourth coming women elections slated for Monday next week.
She noted that there are currently several industries in Tororo with either few or no natives of Tororo working there. It’s upon this background that Otaala intends to form the women association that will match to different factories in Tororo beseeching them to offer jobs to the locals.
The Ambassador stated that she is not going to seat and watch the children of Tororo languish in unemployment with several opportunities in the district citing this is the time to rise and demand for what belongs to them.
She also condemned the act of investors using convincing language of offering the locals jobs but upon completion of installations of their factories, local people are abandoned or given casual jobs that don’t attract money.
Otaala condemned the electoral boycott in Tororo County because this has made the county lose both LCI and women council money. She asked the women not to remain in the district level because of boycotts in Tororo County but push up to the national to lift the Tororo banner higher.
Meanwhile the NRM women league district chairperson Catherine Etoori asked women to always consider doing beneficial activities that earn them a living other than staying home
