Okecho burial program out

William Okecho

The tentative programme for burial arrangements of former West Budama North MP William Okecho has been released.

According to the deceased’s son Valerie Okecho, a requiem service will be held at Christ the King church on Tuesday 22nd, at 9 am, after which the body will be taken to parliament for a special session.

The body will then leave for Tororo on Wednesday morning for burial at paya village.

He died from Mulago hospital on Friday.

Okecho lost his parliamentary seat after a 2011 Constitutional Court ruling declared it illegal for Legislators to switch political party affiliations without vacating their seats.

The ruling followed a petition instituted against him on grounds that he had joined eigth parliament as an independent and was later nominated to run as an NRM flag bearer to join the ninth parliament on the NRM ticket- an act that contravened the law.

However, the Supreme Court recently overturned the ruling.
