Joseph Bossa, a former vice president of the opposition Uganda Peoples’ Congress is dead.
According to his widow, International Criminal Court judge Solome Balungi, Bossa died in The Hague.
“Dear colleagues, I bring you the sad news of the passing of my husband Joseph Fred Bossa in the Netherlands. Burial arrangements will be communicated later. May his soul rest in peace,” she posted.
Judiciary spokesperson Solomon Muyita said funeral arrangements will be communicated in due course.
On May 26, 2016, the then party president Olara Otunnu handed over party’s leadership to Bossa. However, Jimmy Akena, the son of former two-time Uganda President Apolo Milton Obote, said he was the rightful president of the party.
This saw the party splitting in two rival factions allied to Akena and Bbosa.
