The Uganda speaker of parliament has been confirmed dead by the president of Uganda Yoweri Kaguta Museveni via his official Twitter handle. His death news has come in barely a week after stories had been making rounds on social media reporting him dead.

In the just concluded week, the deputy speaker of parliament Anita Among, Owini Dolo, and Norbert Mao had an official visit to Seattle in the United States to get a physical report about his medical condition that turned out to be very alarming. Though there was a claim that he was positively responding to the treatment, all that saw him lamented that he needed prayers to make it through.

Jacob Oulanyah was one of the longest-serving parliamentarians that have served the Uganda parliament both in the capacity of a deputy speaker of parliament as well as the speaker of parliament.

Details of the cause of his death, the transfer of his body from the United States to Uganda, as well as his burial arrangements will be shared in due course. May his soul rest in eternal peace
