“Death has robbed us of a very honest, frank, bright and brilliant person. He was a very solid Speaker of Parliament,” Richard Todwong, Secretary-General of the NRM party said.
He said this as he reacted to the news of the speaker’s death. Todwong added that Oulanyah had a strong background and understood parliamentary ethics hence knowing how to steer the parliament of Uganda. Representing the people of Acholi, Todwong said they will dearly miss him.
Hon. Betty Aol Ocan, the Gulu City Woman MP said she got the news right as she left church after service on Sunday morning.
She said they hoped Oulanyah would fight the illness off and return to them but it never happened.
“When we heard about the death of Jacob Oulanyah, the situation became dark for the Acholi people again. The death of our leaders is now terrible because as you weep, and tears get to dry up, you hear another one. We do not know what to do and what God has prepared for the people of Acholi. It is too much now,” David Ngole, the former LC3 chairman of Palaro in Gulu district said.
Some of the people however felt like they needed to know exactly what killed Oulanyah. A boda boda rider in Gulu City said the Government should be truthful because Oulanyah was a big person in the country.
