The deceased speaker of Parliament Jacob L'okori Oulanya

” I have activated the National Organizing committee, under the Hon. Milly Babalanda, to organise the official burial of the late Speaker. They know what to do. “Speaker Oulanyah passed on yesterday morning in Seattle, USA where he had been admitted earlier after falling sick.

Ever since he was elected as Speaker of Parliament in May last year, Oulanyah had hardly chaired any sittings due to ill health. His deputy Anita Among has steered most of the sittings.

Last year after a long absence from the House, he told MPs that he was back and feeling fine. He said he was disappointed by rumours about his death.

However, late last year, he fell sick again and was first admitted to Nakasero Hospital before he was later flown out of the country to the US for better treatment.”
