Oduya Oprong, the former Amagoro Member of Parliament passed on last night at the Kenyatta National Hospital after a long illness. The late Oduya had been living with a bullet lodged in his head for the past 25 years after gunmen tried to kill him but in vain.
Oduya had two gun bullets shot at him but one was later removed from his head. The other bullet remained, as doctors feared that removing it would be fatal to his life.
He was the minister for Economic Planning and National Development during the Moi regime.
