On the question of the BOD's

cancellation of the Boston Convention


you still don’t seem to get it! The votes
were 6 to 3 in favor of
cancellation. Whether the three
members abstained or voted to hold the
Convention they still would have been in
the minority. Hello!

Mr. Wacha ,

I welcome your colorful and loud interjection. For the sake of transparency, since our
resolve to further elevate LAONA is fully anchored in verifiable data and formation, can
you give us any specific law which has been passed without following any due process
by a properly constituted BOD as you have alluded?

For a people of good repute; there's absolutely no need to incite members without
giving any specificity. As has been clearly pointed out herein below, LAONA is indeed
bigger than any one of us.

Dear Chair,

So our BOD writes new Laws and approves it itself? Something is seriously wrong here.

The "Supreme" Board is that all powerful without check and balance system n place?

WOW!
No wonder we are going from one systematic crisis to another.
May be members should think of putting a hold on our constitution until We meet and revisit this
instrument of power. In fact may be members should call for the creation of a Constitutional Committee or
something like that to help clear all this mess.
WOW!

Ben Wacha
Member (LAONA).

Dear Otino Lango wadwa ducu me N. America,
Now that all our voices, together, have been heard, opinions
expressed, disagreements heard and considered,
suggestions made, it is about time to cease Fire!!!!!!!. No
more Fire storm please!!! No need to keep fighting among
ourselves!!!.

Bear in mind that None of us is AN ENEMY. But If we keep


fighting among ourselves, we become weaker, and we open
lots of avenues for the REAL ENEMY (SATAN) an upper
hand to destroy us.
Just lay down your arms and cool down!!! Remember the
quote from the Good Book: "Together we stand!! But Divided
we Fall" (paraphrased). That is Real. If you can, Learn from
the ongoing GOP elections. The Tea party vs the Main stream
(All Republicans)
It is up to us. It is Time to begin healing. The first and the
best medicine for this is FORGIVENESS. Have mistakes been
made? Has anybody been wronged or hurt? You bet, yes.
But no mistake is too big to correct. It stars with us.

To those of you who are so discouraged, take heart and


know this:

 LAONA is NOT going anywhere.


 LAONA is here to stay.
 LAONA is NOT dead either.
 LAONA is strong and very alive (just one year old).
 LAONA does not belong to one person or to a group of
people. It is ours!!!.
 LAONA's Constitution and Bylaws might require some
Amendments. When the convention is rescheduled (yet
to be heard from the Chair), that will be the time to fix it.

This is part our Democratic process and Freedom.

Remember, in Lango style of Democracy, every voice must


be heard and no one is wrong or right all the time. All ideas
count for the common good of the group!!!
Back home, Lango Region, Our beloved Birth Place, is facing
the same problem, i.e, there is a lot of fighting going on
within the tribe. That is because the HAVES are very few and
the HAVE-NOTS are the majority!!! No Development. Its is
the poorest Region in Uganda now. Just think about it. I urge
you all to save and refine all our knowledge, experience,
expertise, energy and the resources we have to save our
home and fix it. Everyone one of us is somebody. Yes, WE
CAN!!!!

To The Chair, Dr. Omara-Alwala, and your BOD, when you are
ready, please give us some selected time you think will be
good to reschedule the LAONA convention. I know you are
all talking among yourselves. We are all eagerly waiting for
your announcements!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for reading and listening.

Omin wu,
Ogwal

Subject: Re: Reminder!!!!!!! The Cancellation of the LAONA Boston Convention is Parmanent!!!!!!!

Sarah Alobo,

You make a complete fool of yourself calling a draft document that was at best in preparation a
plagiarized document. Your copy of the document has little or no resemblance to the final document we
have in our possession that you have not even seen. Shame on you!

I told you before that your education wasn’t of any much help to you. I meant it!
Have you ever published anything in your life? Do you even know what is meant by literature search in
writing of any kind?

Let me inform our members that it is on record that you were not present at the teleconference during
which the BOD made a decision to develop the said CODE OF CONDUCT.

Does it surprise anyone, therefore, that you would be the one BOD member who would be the most
scared by the prospects of the Proposed LAONA CODE OF CONDUCT of ever becoming a bylaw of
LAONA?
Isn’t it true that you wanted to kill the proposal at all costs well before it was even ready for the approval
of the BOD?

Why was it necessary for you to share with the members the draft copy of the document that you knew
was meant for you only as a BOD member to review? Isn’t that an act of sabotage or disobedience?
Isn’t it true that you planned purposely to mislead our members into believing your fabrication and about
the draft document that was at best still in preparation?

Despite your disruptive unprofessional behavior, I am pleased to inform our members that following
inputs from the more responsible BOD members than yourself, the Proposed LAONA CODE OF
CONDUCT bylaw is duly completed and ready for the approval of the BOD. This may well be the best
time to approve it.

Prof Omara-Alwala, Chair


LAONA

Proposed LAONA CODE OF CONDUCT was copied and paste from UNAA website! It got struck down
because it was plagiarized by this same well educated person!(There was no acknowledgement of the
original source).
A copy can is available for cross examination as needed.

Dear Atim-Ayang

On the question of the BOD's cancellation of the Boston Convention you still don’t seem to get it! The
votes were 6 to 3 in favor of cancellation. Whether the three members abstained or voted to hold the
Convention they still would have been in the minority. Hello!

Interestingly, our BOD has the same number of members as the number of the justices on the US
Supreme Court; 9 and 9! In a close decision, it would require only a single vote to overturn or to withhold
the Court decision. For example, the Obamacare became the law of the land by just one vote, delivered
by the Chief Justice Roberts. In our case the vote to cancel the Convention was an overwhelming
majority. Please let us move on!

You keep making personal references to me as if to make me angry and lose my cool. It is not about
you or me that this Association was created. What does it matter, anyway, at this time how the
Association came into existence? You did your part; I did my part; and everyone else did their part.

Our constitution came well before the Association was created. In deed, it was because of the
Constitution that the Association was even possible to incorporate in the first place.

Members were given two weeks in advance of the inauguration to review both the constitution and the
by-laws before the vote to pass the constitution. In addition, a constitution is a living document. It can be
amended at anytime as long as the members follow the correct process to amend it. For your information,
the US Constitution has only 27 Amendments in over 200 years of its existence.

Over the past several months, we have heard some of the reasons why some of you are so desperate to
amend the constitution. A constitution that is written based on personalities is not worth even the paper
on which it is written.

The problems and issues facing our Association have little or nothing, whatsoever, to do with our
Constitution. The problems and issues are the people in the Association; please!

The solution to most of these problems and issues in LAONA is a critical bylaw called the CODE OF
CONDUCT, which is a vital civil guide in any association/organization! Do I need to remind you of what
happened to our BOD’s decision, yes our BOD’s, to develop LAONA’s CODE OF CONDUCT?

Your stance to hold a LAONA Convention against the decision of the BOD makes many of our members
very uneasy about your motive. Maybe it is time you came clean on the real motive of this meeting that
has to happen at all costs!

Best wishes,

Prof Omara-Alwala, Chair


LAONA

Dear Omara, I do not want to be distracted by all these misleading statements and threats that you are
posting concerning the Boston Convention. I will reserved my comments until we successfully and
peacefully convened in Boston. Your attempt to stop us from meeting using your dictatorial and
intimidating tactics is not going to stop a determined mind.

I must remind you that I together with some members who disagree with your decision to cancel the
convention are part of the same BOD that you keep referring to. You are using the BOD name to
convince the members of our community who did not foloww the genesis of this all thing so that they
beleive you that things were done transparent manner. Some of us objected to the decision and refused
to participate in the making of that decision because the process was not inclusive, not transparent and it
was done in a very bad faith.

Trying to rob your own people from their freedom of associating in the name of a constitution is just
unbelievable! - I can see why when you were presenting this constitution to us during the inaugural
convention in Philly you said “I wrote this single handedly” comparing yourself with Thomas
Jefferson. And when some of us where trying to question some sections you were reluctance and giving
verge answers. You knew exactly how you were going to use it against your own people- it’s really a very
selfish approach that I must condemn it!

Let me point out these two paragraphs from your recent email to the members of the community:
“Cancellation simply means that the Convention is called off by the BOD of LAONA and that the Events
Chair, Mr. Alex Atim, has no longer the authority or the power to organize a Convention for the Lango
Association of North America.”
My response to this is that, I volunteered to organize this event in a very good faith not ordered to do it so
that our people come together mingle, network, share ideas and forge a way forward to support each
other in this diaspora. So long as our people still want to get together- you absolutely have no power to
stop me from organizing event that bring our people together. If LAONA was created to divide people
then I do not want to be a party to it. Let me make this clear to you- You can’t order me- we are meeting
in Boston. We will short out this mess that you created in LAONA after our meeting in Boston.

“Any effort by an individual or by a group of individuals to take advantage of the Association in any way
contrary to our BOD action will be fought to the fullest extent of the law as necessary. “

For this one if that is the case- I see you in court!

I will present to you members a comprehensive response to some of these issues that Omara brought
after our gathering in Boston then you will be the judge. Just do not rely on only on this biased side of the
story.

Thank you
Alex Atim- Ayang

Hon Ambassador Ogwang,


It was never my intention at all to mislead or to scare anybody by my choice of the word permanent to
describe the cancellation of the LAONA Boston Convention.
I just intended to reiterate to the members that the BOD had called off, cancelled, rescinded or
withdrawn the plan for our previously scheduled Annual Convention in Boston. I wasn't talking about
never ever holding any future LAONA conventions in Boston; never!
I am sorry for my choice of the word permanent over the others you might have preferred!
Thank you,
Omara-Alwala

Professor,

The word permanent is quit too strong and can be easily misconstrued that there will never ever be a
LAONA Convention!

You are scaring members and I request you to give some light here. Please act as an elected leader
and board, not being easily misunderstood to being a dictator that you may not be, simply due to wrong
choice of words in your address to distinguish members.

I hope you understand me Mr. Chairman.

Best regard,

Dickson

Dear LAONA Members and Friends,


This is to remind everyone of you that the decision of the Lango Association of North America (LAONA)
Board of Directors (BOD) to cancel its Annual Convention that was previously scheduled at the Quincy
Boston Marriott Hotel, June 19 – 22, 2014 remains unchanged. The cancellation of the LAONA Boston
Convention is parmanent!

Cancellation means cancellation! Cancellation does not mean changing the venue of the Convention
from one location to another or, in this particular case, changing the venue of the Convention from the
Quincy Boston Marriott Hotel to the Hilton Garden Inn in Boston. Cancellation simply means that the
Convention is called off by the BOD of LAONA and that the Events Chair, Mr. Alex Atim, has no longer
the authority or the power to organize a Convention for the Lango Association of North America.

Any effort by an individual or by a group of individuals to take advantage of the Association in any way
contrary to our BOD action will be fought to the fullest extent of the law as necessary.

Thank you,
Prof Omara-Alwala, Chair
LAONA
