As the country continues to mourn Jacob Oulanyah who died last Sunday, questions continue to linger on his exact cause of death. Following earlier claims of possible poisoning which affected his health immediately after becoming Speaker, details remain scanty as the country waits for the postmortem report.

When his father Mzee Nathan Lokori downplayed any statement indicating that his son died a natural death and also revealed he had told him that he was poisoned, it was the beginning of speculations. Not only him even the Acholi Paramount Chief Rwot David Acana II also tasked government to explain well the cause of their son’s death.

“I know all of you who have come here are mourners. His (Oulanyah’s death is not easy news to welcome because i know he did not die of natural causes, he was poisoned”- Mr. Okori told mourners

As we get closer to knowing the cause, renowned writer Opio Oloya while attending a memorial birth day celebrations where friends and family gathered for his birthday which was yesterday 23rd March at his home in Muyenga revealed that the late Speaker Died a natural death without divulging much.

Oloya also reveals the deceased died with a lot of pain but never the less he was always strong and positive and also went with a clean heart.
