Hon Ababiku Jesca (Woman MP) speaking at the 2019 World Population Day Symposium for District leaders from the West Nile region on 10th July at Multi-Purpose Training Centre – Adjumani.
What initially seemed like a low turn up eventually turned into a successful event with resolutions made to do more mobilization next year. The International Youth Day 2019 was commemorated with post district celebrations on August 16th at Paridi Stadium.
The celebration was held under the theme: “Transforming Education” in partnership with the Danish Refugee Council, Lutheran World Federation, Global Aim, OPM, UNHCR, and Red Cross.
After braving up to six years of operating without an x-ray machine, patients in Adjumani hospital on 7th August had a reason to smile after the acquisition of the X-ray bucky stand by Danish refugee council (DRC), a component of the x-ray machine that was missing and had rendered the main x-ray redundant.
Adjumani hospital has three x-ray machines but all were not functioning due to the absence of x-ray bucky stand and poor atomic energy safety requirements of the structure.
Anxiety! Elation! But most of all pride took a center stage on 11th July 2019 as Adjumani District hosted the national celebrations for World Population Day at Paridi Stadium. History was made as different stakeholders joined in the celebration - not even the absence of the fountain of honor could take way this unique opportunity from the people of Adjumani.
The Minister of Local Government, Hon Tom Butime has informed Chief Administrative Officers and Municipal Town Clerks of Government’s intention to take austerity measures such as cuts on travel budgets so as to enable implementation of such emerging priorities as the planned public pay enhancement policy.
