CJ Alphonse Owiny-Dollo retracts statements against the Kabaka, issues apology

They say to err is man and it takes a lot of bravery for a man to know when they have sinned and repent their transgressions.

The Chief Justice Alphonse Owiny-Dollo has been able to acknowledge his mistakes and come out to repent them.

Owiny-Dollo yesterday Monday 28th March 2022 in a statement retracted his statements from last week made about the Kabaka of Buganda and the Baganda as a whole.

Dollo said that he made a wrong and inappropriate reference to the Kabaka of Buganda. He therefore acknowledged his mistakes and handed in his apology.

The CJ added that he was to meet with the Katikkiro and hand in his apology in writing.

“I made a wrong and inappropriate reference to His Majesty the Kabaka of Buganda. I hereby unequivocally, unreservedly and of my free volition, wholly retract that reference and also hereby tender my apology to His Majesty, the Kabaka,” Dollo said in a statement.

“I will immediately hereafter communicate to the Katikkiro of Buganda in writing, registering this apology,” he added.

Owiny-Dollo while speaking at the vigil of the late speaker Hon Jacob Oulanyah said that the Baganda were tribalistic and hypocritical.

This was in regards to the demonstrations in Seattle by a group of people putting on red berets identifying as NUP.

These demonstrations happened where the late Jacob Oulanyah was being hospitalized.

The Chief Justice wondered why this same energy wasn’t used when the Kabaka fell sick and had to be airlifted to Germany using a presidential jet whilst using public funds.

The Katikkiro of Buganda Charles Peter Mayiga through a statement however downplayed the CJ’s remarks. Mayiga said that the Kabaka never used a presidential jet but rather KLM airlines a private chartered company.

Many had been calling for the resignation and apology of the Chief Justice.
