Norbert Mao, 44, Democratic Party

NOBERT Mao is a lawyer, an orator and the leader of the Democratic Party (DP).

He was twice the MP for Gulu Municipality between 1996 and 2006 and applauded as an exceptional debater.

Born on March 12, 1967, Mao has branded himself the true candidate for national reconciliation.

He went to Namilyango College before joining Makerere University for a degree in law where he also became the guild president in 1990.

Although he has many good attributes, Mao’s disadvantage is that he has gone into this election leading a divided a party.

After losing to John Ssebaana Kizito during his first attempt to lead DP in 2006, Mao stood for Gulu district chairman and he won.
What he has promised:

Overhaul the education system

Establishing 16 public universities.

Increase agriculture and health budget allocations to 15%.

Massive investment in the reconstruction of war ravaged northern Uganda.

A transparent and citizen-centred oil and gas policy
