Kampala – Parliament will in it’s sittings this week honor former Speaker of Parliament Jacob Oulanyah.

This was revealed on Monday by Speaker of Parliament Anita Among in her message as she remembered Oulanyah who today marks one year since his demise.

Oulanyah, died of cancer on March 20 in Seattle, Washington in the United States where he had been flown for specialised treatment.

Below is Speaker Among’s message

On this day one year ago, the cold hands of death snatched from us our dear Leader, brother, father, and Icon Rt Hon. Jacob L’okorori Oulanyah.

We celebrate his legacy and continue to be inspired by his passion for leadership of integrity, a people-centered Parliament, the spirit of Ubuntu and always looking out for one another.

As we celebrate his legacy, it is the right time to have that debate that he so much wanted to facilitate, the debate on the “Uganda we want”.

Parliament will this week in our sittings honour a man who mentored, taught and inspired us through his life and work. May his legacy inspire hope in all of us to work for a better Country!
