Now, CJ Owiny-Dollo asked why the NUP supporters and Baganda didn’t hold protests when the Kabaka was rushed abroad for treatment using tax payers’ money.
The chief justice was speaking a vigil held at Oulanyah’s home in Muyenga, Kampala.
“This tribe [Baganda], when your ethnic leader was ill, you didn’t demonstrate that he was using public money because he was jetted out of the country to Germany in a presidential jet and was not entitled,” Owiny-Dollo said.
“There these wrong elements, this tribe should come out to speak out against these evils, otherwise, we shall take it as its stand.”
