Ambassador Julius Onen, who for long served as Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Trade, has passed on at Paragon Hospital, Kampala.
In his 60s, Onen is said to have fallen sick today before being rushed to a hospital in Kampala where he breathed his last.
A few weeks ago, the distinguished diplomat traveled to India for specialized treatment.
On return, many thought Onen’s health had improved only to deteriorate today Sunday.
The Trade Ministry announced the sad news on its Twitter handle, saying Onen had “gone too soon,” adding, “May his soul rest in eternal peace.”
