What Really Killed Speaker Jacob Oulanyah? Here Are Shocking Details You Need To Know

According to the phone call, President Museveni received from the team that traveled to Seattle, USA, he was briefed that the Oulanyah had a terminal illness and the worst was yet to happen.

Museveni noted that the phone call that came through at 10:30 am on Saturday, was only a confirmation that there was nothing much left to do to save Oulanyah’s life.

Following the distress call, Museveni asked the doctors what was next and they told him he needed to inform Oulanyah’s family.

He then took it upon himself to break the news to the family on Saturday, asking them to expect the worst from Seattle.

Earlier this week, Deputy Speaker Anita Among, Minister of Health Jane Ruth Aceng, DP President General Norbert Mao and Chief Justice Owiny-Dollo had five days back traveled to visit Oulanyah who was in his final exit stages.

The team’s role was only to access the options available as ordered by President Museveni and manage his wishes and finally come up with a plan to handle the situation.

President Museveni had for long expressed that there would be a miracle despite being told months ago that Oulanyah’s illness was terminal.

Early in February, Oulanyah had spent three days without eating and he did not answer his phone calls during the time which prompted the Deputy Speaker to order the security detail and protocol teams of Oulanyah to rash him to Mulago hospital.

Oulanyah by this time had been terribly ill and Mulago could not handle his case, a call was made to President Museveni who through his personal doctors booked him admission at Nakasero Hospital.

Two days later, President Museveni was briefed regarding Oulanyah’s situation and he indeed was told the speaker’s situation had tipped to the downside, and he would be declared dead in an interval.

President Museveni refused to agree with the assertion, asking them if he was still alive anyway to which they affirmed he still lived but not long.

He then insisted they try elsewhere, giving orders to Uganda Airlines to fly the speaker to a specialized doctor in Seattle.

According to sources Oulanyah was having terminal cancer and a few surgeries could give him a bit of a lifeline, President Museveni was willing to go to the end of it all until the last phone call coerced him to make the final announcement.
