My Fellow Ugandans, our dear brother, friend and Leader the Rt Hon. Jacob Oulanyah has left us! He passed on this morning in Seattle, WA, the USA where he was receiving treatment.

As a person and the Parliament family, we Loved and cherished Jacob dearly, he stood tall as a gentle giant, a principled man, a man of his word and an accomplished lawyer and legislator.

His loud laughters, cheeky winks and sense of humour lit up our hearts even in the difficult times.

During his tenure as both Speaker and Deputy Speaker, he taught us tolerance, honesty, adherence to the rules and all that it takes to be a good speaker.

Jacob appreciated the value of team work, and held us as the Parliament family together.

We looked forward to many years of working together in the service of our Country and the people of Uganda.

My brother Jacob was a strict time keeper and a God fearing man, that is why the 11th Parliament has premised its activities on the guidance of the almighty.

We did everything humanly possible to ensure our brother gets back to his feet, we prayed too that he would come back to us alive! But that wasn’t to be. God had other plans for my brother our brother!

We loved him, but the Lord almighty loved him more!

My sincere sympathies to the family of my brother Jacob, His Excellency the President, the Members and Staff of Parliament, the people of Omoro County and the Country at large upon this tragic loss.

Parliament will never be the same without you, I will dearly miss you , the light moments, the unique moments we jointly chaired  the proceedings of the House – setting precedents that had never been and all that you were to me and the Parliament of Uganda.
