The candle burned out for Usuk county (Katakwi) MP, Michael Oromait early Saturday morning at Katakwi Hospital.
Specific causes of his death have not yet been established as his body still lies at Mulago hospital for an autopsy.
Born in 1964 in Katakwi, Oromait was a humorous man especially in the plenary sessions.
During the saga in which opposition activist Ingrid Turinawe's breast was pinched by a police officer, Oromait's reaction inside Parliament sent his fellow legislators into laughter.
"Who of us has never sucked a breast of a woman? A woman's breast was our first plate that we used to feed on when we came to this earth," he said.
"Why are you now tampering with that breast? These policemen are sexually starved that is why when they go to the streets, they end up touching breasts because four policemen share a room!"
And considering that he was working with the Uganda Police before he joined politics, the August House couldn't agree more.
He started school at the age of eleven.
In an interview with the Sunday Vision last year Oromait said he delayed to start school because he had spent a lot of time looking after cattle and his peasant parents.
In 1980, he joined Lango College School for his secondary education.
He worked with the Uganda Police as an accountant before joining Uganda Post and Telecommunications.
He then joined Namasagali University for a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and graduated in 2004.
He also has a diploma in Law from the Law Development Centre (LDC) and a post graduate diploma in Human Resource Management from the Uganda Management Institute.
In 2011, he won the Usuk county seat on the independent ticket. He is survived by a set of twins.
Oromait had just travelled from Kampala and developed headache on reaching Usuk. He was rushed to hospital where he died on arrival.
"It was sudden death,' said Parliament spokesperson, Hellen Kawesa.
"We were together at Parliament on Thursday and he was okay. We were laughing and talking. We chatted for a while and left. I am very sad," said Toroma County MP Imalingat Amodoi.
