The cruel hand of death has snatched Serere county MP Patrick Okabe, who died, along with his wife, in a motor accident that occurred at Naboa town council along Mbale-Tirinyi road at around 7AM.

Patrick Okabe and his wife in a road accident this morning. I ask us all to stand with the family during this difficult moment! May his soul RIP.”
