Pallisa District Woman Member of Parliament Faith Alupo has died. Alupo died on Tuesday morning while she was receiving treatment at Mulago National Referral Hospital in what sources who spoke to New Vision noted was a result of Covid-19 infection.

Sources who spoke to New Vision said the MP had symptoms associated with Covid-19 which included difficulty in breathing even though the Ministry of Health Spokesperson Emmanuel Ainebyoona  could neither confirm nor deny but noted that the ministry would issue a statement over the matter.

Alupo became an MP in June 2018 after the former Forum for Democratic Change's (FDC) Woman MP candidate for Pallisa, Catherine Achola was disqualified by the Electoral Commission from the race on grounds that the names she had used for nomination do not tally with those on her academic qualification.

Alupo lost in the recently held NRM primaries to Kevin Kaala Ojinga.
