According to Comrade Ipalibo Apamabo, the chairman of BYO, Ibinabo Kalaoriye has never being an Amanyanabo in Belema Community, adding that there is a legal battle considering the leadership of Belema that is currently pending in the law court. He pointed out that Government has never recognized Kalaoriye as the head of Belema community.
Comrade Ipalibo Apamabo, the chairman of BYO told Kalaoriye to stop parading himself as the head of Belema town. He maintained that Kalaoriye has not visited Belema in the past five (5) years, “but he (Kalaoriye) can only go to his father’s own town, Harry’s town in the Degema Local Government Area”.
Comrade Ipalibo Apamabo said that since he and his executive came on board as the new officers of BYO, Belema is calm and peaceful.
The BYO chairman debunked Kalaoriye’s claims that Belema is boiling, describing Kalaoriye as a self-acclaimed and self-styled leader who also ignite youth restiveness by unilaterally appointing members of youth body who are leaving in his house as to usurp the legitimate functions of the original youths of Belema.
