Oulanyah told me too that he was poisoned, says NRM’s Kiwanda
The former minister for tourism and ruling NRM Vice Chairperson for the Central region, Kiwanda Godfrey Ssuubi, has also disclosed that the late Speaker of Parliament, Jacob Oulanyah, told him that he was poisoned.
While appearing on Capital FM’s #TheCapitalGang show this morning, Kiwanda said that though Oulanyah has other underlying illnesses, the fact that he was poisoned should not be ruled out.
“Yes, he told me that he was poisoned, and he asked me not to tell anyone. However, I disclosed it to Hon Chris Baryomunsi, “said Kiwanda.
He added, “His condition worsened in the last 4-5 months. We also cannot rule out the fact that he was poisoned just because he had other underlying illnesses.”
Kiwanda’s revelations come a day after Nathan L’Okori, the father of Oulanyah, insisted that his son did not die of natural causes but rather was poisoned.
“I’m not mourning in vain. I want to say it clearly. Jacob was poisoned. He told me. The poison affected his health so much that by the time he was flown out for treatment, it was too late. He could not recover,” said L’Okori during the son’s burial ceremony at Lalogi, Omoro District yesterday.
However, earlier this week, Health Minister Jane Ruth Aceng stated that Oulanyah died of multiple organ failure as he has been battling cancer for a number of years
