Awori who was voted the best legislator in the Ugandan sixth Parliament lost to Stephen Mugeni Wasike in the subsequent election.
He retired from active politics before President Yoweri Museveni appointed him a minister.
The late Awori was Minister for Information and Communications Technology from February 16, 2009, to May 27, 2011.
Several leaders inside and outside Uganda are still sending their condolences to Awori’s family.
On Tuesday, ODM leader Raila Odinga and his wife Ida described Awori as a true manifestation of East African Integration and Pan Africanism.
“We join the Awori family and people from all around the region in giving thanks for Aggrey’s remarkable life of service particularly to Kenya and Uganda,” Raila said.
Raila noted the close relationship their families have had that began with their fathers, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga and Jeremiah Musungu Awori.
“At the University of Nairobi, he was an avid debater on issues of the day in Kenya and Uganda,” Raila said.
