An association of Alur living in the Diaspora has gone to the World Wide Web to encourage investment in its home district of Nebbi. The website, www.nebbicommunity.com, was launched in Kampala at the weekend. Pascal Odoch, chairperson of the Nebbi Community, says the website showcases investment opportunities in the district. He says the hope is that it will attract both local and international investors in the areas of tourism, forestry, agriculture and social services. //Cue in: iYou can go to Murchison Falls #i Cue out: i# prosperity to our people.i// Despite having relatively good climate and rich natural resources, Nebbi is one of the poorest and least developed districts in Uganda. The new website particularly targets the 500,000 Alur living in Bunyoro, Acholi, Lango, Buganda, Busoga and abroad. Previous investment campaigns by Alur in the Diaspora have been short-lived. In the late 1980s and early 1990s several key leaders of an investment propeller, Nebbi Investment Limited, were killed in suspicious ambushes in Murchison Falls National Park. Since then there has been no real effort to deliberately attract investments to the district once described as food basket of northern Uganda.
