The Ludo game boards that have a special design of Koluo’s photo and that of President Yoweri Museveni were personally delivered to the locals by the MP while visiting them over the weekend.

“I have personally brought this so that I make sure that these Ludo’s reach to the rightful beneficiaries [the youth],” states Koluo while speaking to his voters in Kapujan trading centre.

A closer look at one of the boards appears a photo of Hon. Koluo on sports attire.

According to Koluo, he bought the gaming boards for his voters [who are the youth] so that it helps them avoid indulging themselves in deep thoughts about poverty, hunger, Karamojong cattle theft and, unemployment.

“I was advised by doctors in Kampala that a free mind from deep thoughts that cause depression, is a healthy one. This is why I bought these boards for my youth in Toroma to always relax their minds after having long days.
