Who was Jacob Oulanyah?
“He was a good Cadre. I delayed the deceleration so that his children would be got to know first about the demise of their father.” Mr. Oulanyah was last watched in Parliament in the month of December 2021 and by that time, he had only chaired a few sessions including the passing of the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) Bill, which permitted mid-term access to the savings of the members. He was elected into the speakership position in the month of May 2021.
How did Jacob Oulanyah die?
Oulanyah traveled out of the country for treatment on the 4th of February, with reports asserting that the Uganda Airlines Bus A330-800 neo with registration code 5X-NIL was used to fly him to Seattle, Washington in the United States. The journey was estimated to have cost $500,000 (around Shs1.7b).
The journey of the Speaker and admission infuriated a section of Ugandans living in the United States who protested against the trip. The demonstrations later forced some legislators from the Acholi Sub-region on the 9th of February to hold a press conference within the confines of Parliament to condemn the diaspora actions. The legislators even offered to repay the Shs1.7b.
