The Speaker, together with Members of Parliament, Parliament staff, relatives and friends of the deceased received the casket containing the remains of the former minister, which was ushered in by the UPDF.
The body will lie in State for MPs to pay their last respects. Thereafter, Parliament will hold a Special Sitting at 2pm in his honour that will be presided over the Speaker Anita Among.
Engola was killed by his body guard Wilson Sabiiti, before he turned the gun on himself in a salon in Kyanja, northeast of Kampala.
The motive behind the gruesome murder of the minister is still a subject of investigation
