Dollo earlier this week blasted a group of National Unity Platform supporters who last month besieged Jacob Oulanyah’s hospital in the US asking that he be flown back to Uganda for treatment.
That they have spent tax payers’ money to charter a plane to take Oulanyah to America!
Dollo said “but your ethnic leader, you, you, you who were demonstrating, your ethnic leader was transported in a presidential jet to Germany using public funds. He was not entitled. You did not demonstrate…only a wicked person can fight a person who is fighting for his life,”Dollo said.
The comments have since attracted a backlash, especially from Baganda.
However, in a statement released on Friday, the Buganda Katikkiro, Charles Peter Mayiga said the Kabaka has never used the presidential jet as had been said by the Chief Justice.
“Death causes shock , grief and anguish and it often makes emotions run high. However, just for the record, when the Kabaka flew to Germany in August, 2021, he didn’t fly by the presidential jet but by KLM,”Mayiga said.
The Buganda premier however urged members of the public and leaders to preserve the dignity of the deceased speaker by avoiding unfounded statements that he said could easily cause unwarranted debates and causing more grief to the family, friends ,colleagues and the entire country.
