The parliamentary medical team picked her up from the pigeonhole area and took her to the waiting room where they administered first aid, according to eyewitnesses.

She was later rushed to her home for a rest. Ogwal confirmed on the phone that she felt nauseated at parliament but was now out of danger and feeling better.

Ogwal is one of the longest serving legislators in the Ugandan parliament, having joined the House in 1994 to represent Lira Municipality during the constitution-making process.

The 73-year-old politician remained a vocal voice until 2006 when she lost her seat to Jimmy Akena. She bounced back in 2011 to represent the newly created Dokolo district as Woman MP, a seat she retained in 2016.
