OMORO-The former speaker of parliament now the late Jacob Oulanyah’s father Nathan Okori has revealed that his son did not die of natural causes and that he was ‘poisoned.’
Okori was quoted telling a handful of mourners at their ancestral home in Omoro District saying Oulanyah’s death is sad and not easy news to welcome insisting his son was poisoned and that whatever people will say, it should not distort the information they have.
He continued that his son revealed the cause of his illness which suddenly began manifesting publicly after he became speaker last year in May before traveling for specialized medical care in the US.
He adds that Oulanyah called him ad promised him certain things. He however doesn’t say who may have planned his son’s death or why.
The information minister Dr Chris Baryomunsi has since disregarded the ‘poison claims’ saying they should wait for a post mortem report.
