Female councillors thump Pader district chairperson

Pader district chairperson Godfrey Largo Oringa is still nursing injuries to his face following a fierce assault by two female councillors.

Angela Anyango, the female youth councillor and Nancy Lawino, the Atanga sub-county Woman councillor ganged up and assaulted the chairperson after he allegedly insulted their personalities. 
 
Trouble started during a heated council session in which the chairman nominated Richard Olal as his vice chairperson to replace the incumbent, Patrick Obua. Both Anyango and Lawino protested the decision, accusing the chairperson of bias and favouring people from Aruu South constituency.

The duo repeatedly interjected Largo's submission in council bringing business to a standstill. The council speaker, Justine Ocen temporally adjourned deliberations for several hours.

Eyewitnesses say that Largo lost patience with the two councillors and referred to them as 'very ugly women' who couldn't match the beauty of his adorable wife. The chairperson's statement infuriated the duo prompting them to charge at him.

The councillors overpowered the sergeant at arms and roughed up the chairperson before they started landing heavy punches and kicks as he tried to run to his office adjacent to the council hall. 
 
It took the intervention of sympathisers to rescue the chairperson who had already sustained deadly punches on his face. Ironically, the two councillors reported a case of assault by the district chairperson at Pader central police station. 

The district speaker, Justine Ocen regretted the ugly scenario that bogged down council deliberations. A source at the district said on condition of anonymity that the chief administrative officer had approved undisclosed amount of money to refer the chairman to Kampala for specialised treatment.

URN couldn't independently verify the information as the CAO did not answer repeated calls to his cellphone.

I wonder what the outburst was in Luo that really got these two ladies worked up.

I guess it was very 'colourful' but unbecoming under the circumstances; still he got what was coming to him and now his own wife might start to have 'some ideas' the next time he shouts her down; what a way to end the year,eh!

I told you so earlier when I commented on M7's "unimpressed" comment regarding the Miss Africa Soga Beauty Queen. I

repeat: Any man who insults a northerner's "Lady-beauty" risks a thorough roughening by her. This chairman should have been aware of that risk, just as M7 was of his.

Since I failed in my parenting duties in regard to my son, the best I can do for him/his own good is to get for him Northern Woman that way she can help put my boy to order.

God bless if the men wearing reds in Parliament had sorted out the NRM female speaker and her NRM female whip the way these two female concillors sorted out this male chairperson for a good cause.

One bets the reds would be bundled and thrown in a military cell badly beaten up, and to stay there for one year locked up.

These days it is important to have the majority on your side but those on the minority side must also be respected.

Sir, in Nilotic cultures, complements are given indirectly through a third party and that is what this chairman was trying to do to his wife.

Surely, those two Councillor ladies were not going to deliver that message to his wife. That is this chairman's 'poor judgement'.

The issue of his wife getting "new ideas" to beat him up after this does not arise, because many northerner women already to that routinely anyway. Husband beating is no taboo up north, but wife-beatings would raise concern in the local community.
