The Katikkiro of Buganda Kingdom Charles Peter Mayiga has decided to cool fire with fire by hitting back at the Chief Justice Alphonse Owiny-Dollo and all those trying to threaten Buganda.
It should be recalled that a video has been among rounds on social media of the Chief Justice criticizing those who protested in Seattle where the late speaker Hon Jacob Oulanyah was being hospitalized.
These demonstrators who categorized themselves as NUP supporters were further labeled as Baganda by the Chief Justice Alphonse Owiny-Dollo.
He further wondered why they had also not protested when Kabaka Mutebi was airlifted to Germany for treatment with a ‘presidential jet and on public funds.’
He further added that he finds this so hypocritical and disturbing above all being tribalistic.
This was however a clip cut from the Chief Justice’s entire speech. In the clip that didn’t get much attention, the CJ expressed his great admiration for the Baganda as a tribe.
He added that his concern is that most of the people in Buganda who have opinions are quite as all this goes on.
The Katikkiro of Buganda however came out to warn all those who threaten the Kingdom.
Mayiga says that the Baganda are strong and united as never before. And they will not tolerate anyone coming at them with threats.
“We have some people threatening us but they should know that we are so tough. I always tell people that Buganda is a rock. We are not vegetables, we shall not wither away. We don’t need to be dipped in water to survive. We are a rock, whether sunshine or rain, we still remain standing strong. They find and leave us there,” Mayiga said.
