The Uganda Police have backed off plans to summon the father of the late Jacob Oulanyah, members of Parliament and other people who allegedly made statements that the former speaker of Parliament was poisoned.
Earlier on the April 11, Police through its spokesperson Fred Enanga had said that they were to summon everyone including Mr Nathan Okori the deceased’s father who made allegations that Oulanyah was poisoned.
Sources within Police told the media that the order came from the Commander-in chief himself Gen Yoweri Kaguta Museveni who called the IGP Gen Okoth Ochola ordering him to close the file because it was not making any sense .
Oulanyah who died last month had his death raise many theories with his father claiming that his son had told him that he had been poisoned.
The NRM Vice chairperson for Buganda region Hon Godfrey Kiwanda Suubi later also came out to claim that before Oulanyah’s death, he had told him of how he was poisoned.
This is what that tempted Police to gain interest in the matter by making plans to summon the two and other MPS who had spoken sensitively about the issue. And for now, the case is permanently closed.
