Mp Odonga Otto hospitalised after being beaten by fellow Mp

BY: Eyalama In News, Politics On

Aruu County MP Odonga Otto has been hospitalized at Nakasero Hospital in Kampala after he was beaten up by fellow legislator Anthony Akol of Kilak.

The fight, which started in the Parliament premises in the pigeon hall lobby on Thursday, January 30, 2020, started after Akol accused Otto of de-campaigning him over government compensation for a disputed land at Lakang in Amuru district.

At the weekend, Odonga was reportedly in the area in which he asked voters not to re-elect Akol, accusing him of selling the said land to government at the tune of Shs600m.

Akol is said to have met Otto on Thursday and started punching him before throwing him to the ground. In response, Otto grabbed a chair in a bid to hit Akol before they were separated by MPs Lyandro Komakech and Francis Mwijukye.

The protracted Apaa land conflict has divided Adjumani and Acholi leaders resulting in violent confrontations between the two communities. In 2015 the government demarcated the disputed land in Amuru District as part of Adjumani, a move that has since sparked protest among the Acholi community occupying the land.
