The Member of Parliament Soroti Municipality, Hon. Herbert Edmund Ariko true to his promise left the staff and students of SMAGS (St. Mary’s Girls Secondary School) located in Madera in Soroti Municipality smiling from ear to ear after he fulfilled his promise of 100 bags of cement on the 16th August 2019.
Ariko had made this promise weeks ago when he visited the school in a day dubbed “MP DAY”.
While delivering the bags, the Municipality MP also encouraged teachers to form SACCOS so that they can easily access credit from government.
“Over depending on salary will sink our economy and development, you should form SACCOS,” Hon Ariko said while giving his speech.
He further promised to fund the teachers SACCO’s whenever possible and to provide the school staff with staff wear in within the shortest time possible.
Hon Ariko is commonly known for fulfilling his promises and supporting developmental programs in the Municipality.
The students later on had fun and freely interacted with their area Member of Parliament.
