Kampala- The burial of the late Josphine Amato Otunnu, mother of the Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) leader Olara Otunnu, will take place in Oxford, London today. Her late husband Mzee Yusto Otunnu is buried at the same place.

Josphine Otunnu, died on December 22 at John Radcliffe Hospital Oxfordshire, UK, where she had been admitted.

Mr Otunnu flew to London on Thursday for the burial.
“The family will make arrangements later at an appropriate time to bring the body and that of her husband home,” UPC vice President Joseph Bbosa told Saturday Monitor.

Dr Bbosa could not explain why the burial would not take place in Acholi, Uganda, the ancestral home.

“It is a family decision. So don’t ask me why because I don’t know,” he said.
