Daniel Omara Atubo, the former Minister of Lands, Housing and Urban Development described Cecilia Ogwal as firm foundation of the Multi- party democracy in Uganda, something which Uganda will not achieve based on personality domination.

Chris Otim, a resident of Lira City compared Ogwaal’s death to the death of President Apollo Milton Obote in 2006 and Gen. David Oyite Ojok in 1983, deaths which he said changed Lango forever.

At the time of her death, Ogwal has been serving as a member of the parliamentary Committee of Physical Infrastructure in charge of overseeing and covering policy matters related to Lands, Housing, Urban development, Works and Transport, and Physical Planning.
