The death of MP Logiel in Denmark brought to four the number of senior Ugandan officials to die abroad since the Minister of Internal Affairs General Robert Aronda Nyakairima passed on in September 2015. Gen. Aronda was also a former Chief of Defence Forces (CDF), who 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.
