Toroma County Member of Parliament [MP], Joseph Andrew Koluo has donated four Ludo game boards to four sub counties of Kapujan, Toroma, Magoro, and Omodoi that form up his constituency [Toroma County].
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.
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.
