The father of the Late Hon. Charles Willy Ekemu has also died just a day after the death of the son.
Former Soroti Municipality MP Charles Willy Ekemu was battling liver cancer at Nsambya Hospital.
Ekemu was elected Member of Parliament after he defeated Capt. Mike Mukula in 2006. He however lost party primaries to Comrade Attan Okia Moses in 2011 hence contesting as an independent.
