Apac: The Lango Paramount Chief, Won Nyaci Yosam Odur Ebii has said Lango needs a competent person to replace him.
Won Nyaci’s hard-hitting statement comes at a time Lango cultural institution is wrestling for top power.
Speaking last Saturday at the burial of Akbar Adoko Nekyon, the first post independence Minister who was laid to rest in Apoki village, Chegere Sub-county in Apac district, Odur spoke about leaving cultural leadership.
Tough speaking Lango Chief said he would love to leave power ‘tomorrow’ to a legitimately elected Chief in a free and fair election.
Mzee Odur added: “In that election, there must be two or three contenders.”
“I also want to leave in peace, not in a manner where you buy few clan chiefs to vote for you. I want to tell him [Dr. Eng. Michael Odongo Okune ] to wait until my time comes to an end,” Odur added.
The under pressure Lango Chief bashed the election of his rival Paramount Chief, Eng. Michael Odongo Okune, saying it was done at night.
Eng. Odongo Okune who recently appointed his ministers and advisors has often been quoted to have said, ‘we will never turn back.’
Odongo, the parallel Paramount Chief of Lango was enthroned in April after Lira High Court dismissed a case against him and his group.
The Tekwaro Lango leader said they have lost finances, dear ones through pressure levied on them.
The above, he said took place at a time they were working to take on cultural business.
Eng. Odongo has often maintained that nothing will stop them from forcing the aging rival Yosam Odur Ebii and his camp to cease the throne.
