The Pader district chairperson Alfred Akena is not happy with the Office of the Prime Minister for not fully supporting the nodding children in his district.
The Pader Chairperson said that he is not pleased with the way the Office of the prime Minister is giving out the nutrition to the nodding children.
Akena claims that the Office of the prime Minister has not been giving sufficient supplies of nutritional food supplements meant for the nodding syndrome children.
Akena says the government delivered 100 bags of Posho and 50 bags of beans in December last year but it is already running out of stock.
The chairperson explained that since last year, some of the children who have been subjected to nutritional supplements have improved drastically.
He gave example of improved children who were brought from Angole and bolo parishes in Awere sub County.
Nodding disease or nodding syndrome which is in Acholi sub region reported, is little-known disease which emerged in Sudan in the 1960s.
It is a fatal, mentally and physically disabling disease that only affects children, typically between the ages of 5 and 15.
