Chief Justice Owiny Dollo has today visited Buganda Kingdom headquarters in Bulange, Mengo to personally convey his apology to the kingdom over the inappropriate statements he made at the late Rt Hon Jacob Oulanyah’s vigil.
Arriving at Bulange in the company of Olara Otunu, among other dignitaries, Owiny Dollo was received by Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga, who introduced him to the Buganda officials and religious leaders.
In a closed-door meeting with the Katikkiro, Chief Justice Owiny Dolo apologized to the Kabaka of Buganda for the remarks he made on March 22.
After the meeting, the CJ and the Katikkiro addressed the media.
Owiny Dollo said that they came here in peace and they are leaving knowing they are closer.
“After this, we are better people than before the meeting. I thank the delegation that accompanied me here, “said Owiny Dollo.
He added, “This is proof that we can resolve differences between us amicably as people than if it was my victory against the Katikkiro or the Katikkiro against me.”
For Mayiga, he commended the Chief Justice for his courage.
“I commend the Chief Justice for the humility he has exhibited. In Buganda, we say that friendship comes after a fight. The Chief Justice has come as a friend and he is going to leave as a brother,” Mayiga said.
He urged all Ugandans to leave all that was said behind us.
