Treat this with the quickness it deserves,” Chelimo said.

Chelimo made this decision come from a meeting on March 22, 2022, which resolved that local governments contribute to the burial.

Oulanyah died last week in Seattle, the USA, where he had been taken for a highly specialized treatment for cancer.

The body of the former speaker will be arriving in the country on Friday, and his family will bury the body at his ancestral home in Omoro.

The government has planned Shs 2.5b to cater to the burial expenses; however, in a special session at parliament yesterday, the government slashed the budget to Shs1.8b.
