The Acholi community leaders have warned Bobi Wine and NUP Leadership not to attend the burial of their son.
The Acholi blame Bobi Wine and his camp for politicizing the issue of Oulanyah sickness.
They blame the Bobi Wine camp for causing a lot of grief to the family of the demised speaker by organizing people in the country and diaspora to demonstrate against the government move to take Hon. Jacob to Seattle for treatment.
Social media is awash with video clips of angry acholi who blame the entire NUP leadership for not being ethical and empathetic during the time the Speaker was very ill.
Following president Museveni’s official announcement of Jacob Oulanyah death on the 20th.March.2022, there has been a diversity of reactions from different government stakeholders and from Ugandan locals at large.
Since that day, many allegations have been put forward mainly through social media platforms to justify the cause for the death of Hon. Jacob Oulanyah.
However, all the information circulating about his death remains untrue not until the doctors produce a detailed medical report what justifies the cause of his death.
The Acholi community is dissatisfied with Leaders of NUP and their supporters for politicizing the health conditions and currently the death of their late son Jacob Oulanyah.
NUP leadership lost credit when it mobilized NUP diaspora political crews to demonstrate against the action of the late Hon. Jacob Oulanyah receiving special medical treatment from Seattle Washington because of his critical health conditions.
Many Ugandan politicians argued against the NUP’s action and others termed it the evil one. It was on the same cause that the chairperson of the Democratic Party (DP) Norbert Mao termed the diaspora NUP demonstrators as Night dancers.
This indirectly means that they wished Jacob Oulanyah to die just on grounds of their cheap politics, something bad because however much you quarrel when they are sick or bereaved, you have a temporary ceasefire to enhance harmony and exhibit a sense of humor.
In a video circulating on all social media platforms, the locals of Omoro County constituency, Omoro District, Acholi sub-region, in Uganda’s Northern Region have been seen warning not only kyagulanyi alias Bobi wine but also the entire leadership of NUP not to be part of the burial ceremony of late Hon. Jacob Oulanyah.
“I join the people of Uganda in mourning the Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Jacob L’Okori Oulanyah. On behalf of the @NUP_Ug and on my own behalf, I extend deep condolences to his family, friends, the people of the Acholi Sub-region, and all Ugandans. May his soul rest in peace,” Bobi Wine tweeted.
However, the locals of the Omoro county constituency have debased Bobiwine’s tweet since they have interpreted it as a crocodile tears tweet.
A 30-year-old youth Omoya Kenneth from Omoro County told our reporter that they will not be able to host and look at the very people who agitated for the termination of medical care and services rendered to late Jacob Oulanyah while in Seattle Washington.
He also added that they are not ready to see chaos and violence which is always caused by Bobi wine’s ganja men at burial ceremonies where he visits.
“We are tired of seeing Bobi wine turning the burial ceremonies into his political rallies something which demeans the essence of such moments,” He said.
Omoya referred his argument to what happened in Serere during the burial ceremony of the late cultural leader Emorimori where Bobi wine and his supporters disorganized the ceremony through chaotic acts something which of disrespect Teso as a community.
Recently, at a time when the Speakers was very ill, the Acholi legislators tabled a motion seeking an update on the Speakers health. The Nup fraternity boycotted the sitting for reasons that were not known. It was unfortunate that the Acholi MPs did not get their plea.
