The current chief justice Owiny -Dollo  has promised to give a helping hand to these children who have been sponsored by Former Speaker under Jacob Oulanyah education trust fund from Omoro district to finish with their studies.

“We have set up Jacob Oulanyah education trust fund which I am privileged to chair. It is our vow, our determination that Oulanyah’s children may not be able to see him now, but their dreams, pursuit of education will continue as if he was alive” Chief Justice Owiny Dollo said.

This came after a total number of 120 students whose school fees has been sponsored by former speaker of Parliament, Jacob Oulanyah have expressed worry over their future.

A section of these Learners from Seroma Christian High School under direct sponsorship of the deceased showed up to eulogies at the funeral service at the residence of the former Speaker in Muyenga, Kampala.

They asked for help from the government of Uganda together with the newly elected speaker of the parliament Hon Anita Among so that they can finish their studies.

However, the speaker of parliament also noted that as the parliament, they are to ensure that they fund these children to pursue their dreams.

The students, most of who are studying at Seroma Christian High School in Mukono told mourners at Muyenga that the deceased former speaker of the 11th parliament had taken the initiative to pay for their education needs but said they are not sure of what will happen after his death.

“He used to give us everything. He picked me in 2019 and now I am in s.3. He was not only my sponsor but also my mentor and father. Our humble request to government, especially the speaker is that they should come to our help. The Rt.Hon Jacob Oulanyah used to give us everything. He picked us and built hope in us through education. We are not sure of the future. This might be our last time to go to school,” Prossy Oyella told mourners.

The students also added that the deceased former speaker picked them from a point where they could not continue with education over several challenges including school fees but noted that he ensured a bright future by enrolling them at Seroma Christian High School in Mukono and paid for everything.

The Chief Justice said among others, the fund will ensure continuity of the education needs of the students that the deceased former speaker was looking after.
