Omoro, Uganda: Taking to his twitter account, National nUnity Platform (NUP) Principal, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu wrote;
Joined mourners in Te-Got Ayamo Village in Omoro District to say goodbye to our noble senior comrade and friend, Hon. Toolit Simon Akecha. On my behalf and that of
, I extend condolences to the people of Acholi and all Ugandans upon losing such a valuable leader.
Like I said in my speech, the best way we can pay him back is to continue fighting for justice and the rule of law, which he cherished so much. Grateful to all who joined us and ensured we gave him a dignified send off!
Some weeks ago when Mr. Toolit died still Bobi Wine tweeted;
“It is very unfortunate that he has passed without seeing the justice and good governance which he so much struggled for, all his life. Details regarding burial arrangements are being discussed with the family, and will be communicated in due course. May his soul rest in peace”.
NUP last year fronted Toolit, a former FDC member as its flag-bearer in the Omoro County by-election, following the death of MP and former Speaker of Parliament Jacob Oulanyah.
