The Moroto Woman Member of Parliament Annie Logiel has passed on.
The news of Ms Logiel’s sudden death in Denmark trickled in early today, with family members saying the cause of death is still unknown.
Ms Logiel has been the Vice Chairperson of the Parliamentary Health Committee, and arrangements for her burial will be communicated in due course, Parliament Director of Communication Chris Obore, has said.
Ms Logiel becomes the fourth senior personality in Uganda to die abroad since the Minister of Internal Affairs General Robert Aronda Nyakairima passed on in September 2015. Gen. Aronda, who was also a former Chief of Defence Forces (CDF), died in Dubai while on his way from South Korea where he had gone for official duties.
Others who have died while on duty abroad include Ambassador Najuna Njuneki, who died in Sweden in September 2016, and Dr Michael Odong, an assistant Commissioner in charge of Agro-chemicals in the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries, who died at the Schiphol Airport in The Netherlands in October 2016.
