Amuria I The Woman MP of Amuria district, Susan Amero has declared that she won’t be on the ballot for any elective position in 2026. 

Speaking at Christine Agado’s burial in Alira Cell, Amuria Town Council, Amero expressed that after serving since 2011 and completing three terms in Parliament, it’s time for the people of Amuria to seek another representative for the upcoming Parliament.

Agado’s one prominent child is State Minister for Sports, Peter Ogwang (MP).

Amero urges voters to be vigilant in selecting a candidate dedicated to advancing Amuria’s development.

In contrast, MP Musa Francis Ecweru of Amuria County expressed his intention to remain in office for as long as President Museveni is still in power.

Ecweru has been in power since 2006 after retiring as a Resident District Commissioner (RDC) of Soroti.


He is popularly known as “Arrow Boy” because of his activeness in mobilizing boys and girls to formulate “Arrow Boys” – local paramilitaries that resisted the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) rebel group in Teso under Gen. Joseph Kony in 2003.
