As Residence District Commissioner (R.D.C) I held an office that represents the presidency and local government. Among my roles include:-
- Ensuring government programs and projects are satisfactory implemented successfully.
- As stripped in Local government act, I ensure council is advised on the best way to implement government programs and policies.
With help of my office, Zombo district has managed to achieve the following:-
- People of Zombo who are typically Alur of county known as Okoro have been able to govern them through good governance practices i.e are smooth and fair elections on all stages of politics in district.
- Security element has been achieved in Zombo district most expecially when in the past it suffered with groups of social wrong doers, tribal and land grabbing wars. With help of UPDF and Police force security has been achieved internally and externally. Externally may neighbor the area of Mahagi in DRC congo. This area has had conflicts with our people here but we have managed to resolve the problem and trade has started across the borders.
- On addition to good security in the region being, Zombo people now enjoy the diversified market of selling their goods to neighbors most especially to Congo and South sudan.
- Zombo district has hydro power from nyagak dam which has boasted business in towns of Zombo and paidha. And the road networks have made it smooth for the travellers. This we very much attribute it to the government of Uganda and most especially His Excellency Yoweri Kaguta Museveni who has personally made sure the district get equipped.
The main economic activity in Zombo is agriculture. Zombo district is actually the food basket of the West Nile region and our coffee is of the highest quality in the region and surrounding districts. Our main produce is: beans; irish potatoes and matooke (green bananas).
As I mentioned earlier, our trade is mainly agro-based as we are an ever-green area. This presents an enormous potential for economic development.
I therefore call people out there to come and invest in zombo because all the factors of doing business are already in place. From the good fertile soils to electricity surely you can enjoy working in Zombo.
