Bu­sia Gov­er­nor Sospeter Ojaa­mong has said lead­ers who en­gage in what he calls par­rot talk are less de­vel­op­ment-ori­ented than quiet lead­ers.

“A good leader is the one who does his or her work qui­etly with­out at­tract­ing much at­ten­tion. Those who talk too much do lit­tle,” he said.

Speak­ing dur­ing a fundraiser at St Joseph’s Mu­sokoto Se­condary School in Nam­bale sub­county, the gov­er­nor said his gov­ern­ment aims to em­power the peo­ple. Ojaa­mong said he will en­sure more de­vel­op­ment projects are launched.

“My gov­ern­ment has helped fund the con­struc­tion of Nam­bale Univer­sity and many other in­sti­tu­tions across the county. We shall con­tinue sup­port­ing ed­u­ca­tion,” he said.

Ojaa­mong praised Nam­bale MP John Bun­yasi for play­ing a piv­otal role in de­vel­op­ing the county. “Bun­yasi does his work with pre­ci­sion. If there is a prob­lem with roads he con­sults my CEC. He does the same in health mat­ters. These are the lead­ers we want. The Teso South MP does the same,” Ojamoong said.

Roads ex­ec­u­tive Bernard Waite said 1,600km of county roads are in good con­di­tion, adding class A, B and C roads are un­der the na­tional gov­ern­ment.
