Chief Justice Alfonse Owiny Dollo’s name is trending at number one on Twitter. This follows his claims about the Kabaka of Buganda at the late Speaker Jacob Oulanyah’s home in Muyenga. Some social media users have termed his statements as tribal.
In a video making the rounds on social media, Owiny Dollo condemned the demonstrations that took place in Seattle, US, where the fallen Speaker, Oulanyah, was hospitalized.
The Chief Justice said that it’s only a wicked person that fights a person fighting for his life.
He further alleged that the ‘ethic leader’ of the people that demonstrated used a presidential jet to Germany for treatment.
“Some people demonstrated in Seattle telling a man struggling for his life to go back home (Uganda), Why didn’t they demonstrate when their Ethnic leader was flown to Germany,” said Owiny Dollo.
However, this website understands that the Kabaka of Buganda, Ronald Muwenda Mutebi, travelled to Germany for treatment using KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.
The CJ’s comments have caused an extremely strong reaction of anger.
