SIR— About three weeks ago, Tororo district leaders visited President Yoweri Museveni
in his home at Rwakitura
to discuss various issues about the district.

However, most surprising
to the people of Tororo was
a demand to create separate districts of Iteso and Banyole from Tororo district,
which issue was not part
of the district memo to the President.

That means Tororo will have Banyole, Iteso and Jopadhola as districts.
I have discovered that there
is an administration problem
in the district leadership
which can be solved.

But some political leaders have
spearheaded this division
to ensure they gain popularity from Movement supporters
in Teso who up to now
are looking for good leaders.

I wish to advise
the Government not to grant districts in Tororo on tribal grounds or else it will cause
a lot of problems to other tribes in Tororo district. Already,
tension is high between
the Jopadhola in West Budama county and the Iteso in Tororo county.

Both tribes have always accommodated to each other and worked together without any discrimination. Now some leaders want them divided.

I would like to appeal to the President to study the issue of Tororo carefully and not allow the enemies of the people of Tororo to divide them.
For God and my country.
