According to the Assistant police spokesperson Patrick Onyango, the Late had gone to America on state duties where he had spent two weeks, and on his way from Dubai to Uganda, he died while in Transit. “We took long to know because they had to follow the procedures before the Ugandan embassy in Dubai notified ministry of Foreign Affairs, then Foreign Affairs notified Internal Affairs which also notified the Inspector General of Police,” Mr. Onyango said.

He also added that as a government requirement, they are going to make a postmortem report from Mulago even though one was conducted from Dubai. “As procedure, from here, we are going straight to Mulago for postmortem because it’s a government requirement even though they conducted one from there,” Mr. Onyango asserted.

According to the clan Leader who is also the retired commissioner in charge of Water and Environment Eng. Richard Cong said that the death of Commissioner Okello has left a big gap within their clan. “I was once a commissioner and now retired, but he was the only commissioner who was still serving within our clan and it’s a total loss to us as family members, losing a person who is irreplaceable, we shall dearly miss him,” Mr. Cong said.

His body has been taken to Mulago for postmortem by the A-plus from where he will be taken to his home today in Kirinya Bweyogerere in Wakiso District where they will conduct a memorial service at 7:00pm.

Tomorrow Friday, there will be a main service at All saints Nakasero beginning at 10:00am and from there, they will proceed to Oyam District on Saturday for burial at 4:00pm. There are media allegations that the late Opolot was supposed to check and verify the guns that killed former police mouthpiece AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi.
