The National Unity Platform leader Hon Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has said that the Chief Justice Alphonse Owiny-Dollo ought to apologize for his recent remarks against Buganda and the Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi.
It should be recalled that the CJ’s recent remarks about the ‘NUP-Baganda’ protests in Seattle where the late speaker Hon Jacob Oulanyah was hospitalized caused outrage among the Baganda and also aroused different reactions.
Owiny-Dollo wondered why the Baganda never protested when their ethnic leader was transported abroad on a presidential jet using public funds.
He went ahead to say that despite Buganda being a hospitable place with good people, there is a new crop of politicians that are trying to stagnate the region.
He therefore implored all people and leaders that have an opinion to stand up and speak up against this intolerant group presumably led by Bobi Wine.
However through a lengthy post on his Facebook page, Bobi Wine came out to attack and criticize the CJ of a number of allegations.
The former Kyadondo east legislator implored the Chief Justice to apologize to those he offended with his remarks especially the Kabaka.
“If Mr. Owiny Dollo had any decency left in him, the moral thing for him to do would be to apologize to the nation. As well as to His Majesty the Kabaka of Buganda…”
Bobi Wine despite having endorsed the protests in Seattle against the poor health facilities in Uganda said that the people who did so were never sent by Buganda nor do they represent Buganda.
“Being the head of our judicial system, Mr. Owiny Dollo ought to have known better. Than to collectively denigrate an entire community based on the actions of a few individuals who were neither sent by nor speak for the community called Buganda. What justice, now, should the members of that community who seek relief from the courts of law headed by him expect?” he queried.
