Father Of MP Who Died Of Cancer, Dies Of Pressure


The father of the former MP for Soroti Municipality has also died a day after his son died from complication related to Liver Cancer.

The old man, Philip Omaswa Ekemu, 94, died of a stroke at his home in Nakatunya, in Soroti Municipality. Family members say the stroke was brought about by the pain felt after his son died the day earlier.

Ekemu has lived with high blood pressure since 1982 and despite his advanced age of 94, his life was stable until he received the news of the death of his son.

Ekemu served as a police officer during the Obote regime.

Ekemu senior is survived by four widows. His body will be laid to rest on Tuesday along with that of his son Charles Willy Ekemu at their home in Atapar village in Kapir Sub County, Ngora district.
