Gulu Residents Storm RDC’s Office For Food Aid
Over 150 women on Monday morning stormed the office of the Gulu Resident District Commissioner (RDC) demanding to be given food aid.
However they were later told to register and go home since there was no food aid at the district store to be given to the needy affected by the Covid-19 lock-down.
Maj. Okot Santo Lapolo, the Gulu Resident District Commissioner says the surging number of people demanding for food is giving him sleepless nights.
Ojara Martin Mapenduzi, the Gulu District LCV chairperson says on a daily basis they received between 150-500 people demanding for relief food.
This comes just three days after another group stormed the office of the district chairperson demanding to be given food aid.
Meanwhile as the issue of the Gulu district Task force giving food aid to suspected commercial sex workers is still controversially trending, Bishop James Ochan, the overseer of the Pentecostal churches in Acholi Sub Region Monday donated one million shillings to support the same group.
The Pentecostal churches also donated food aid worth 9.4 million shillings to Gulu District Corona virus Task Force to be given to the starving residents.
