He said the level of education in Lango is fast dropping, which calls for more effort to improve the same.

Yosam Odur said Ayena Odongo is a highly experienced clan leader who is well conversant with cultural matters.

Bishop of West Lango Diocese Rt. Rev Ceaser Nina Otim decried disunity in Lango which is frustrating development of the region.

Lango parliamentary Group chairperson also Kole District woman MP Judith Alyek tasked cultural leaders to fight domestic violence which she says is responsible for increasing cases of murder among married couples.

In his maiden speech, Krispus Ayena Odongo pledged to unite the clan members.

Ayena says he will ensure the rights of the widows and orphans are protected during his tenure.
