Chief Justice Owiny Dollo apologizes to Kabaka

Chief Owiny-Dollo, while speaking at deceased Speaker of Parliament Jacob Oulanyah’s vigil, had asked why some people in the diaspora had protested Oulanyah’s presence in a foreign hospital yet had not complained when the Kabaka travelled to Germany for treatment.

He had said, “…your ethnic, leader, you-you who were demonstrating was transported in a presidential jet to Germany, using public funds. He was not entitled. You didn’t demonstrate. Is it because Oulanyah is an Acholi? Is it because he doesn’t speak your language?”

These comments had been viewed by the public as extremely tribalistic and the chief justice came under fire for uttering them, with many asking him to apologize.

Today’s event, which was a closed door meeting with the Katikkiro, was seen by the public as an effort in futility, going by the conversations on the matter on social media with many asking that he should now go on and apologize to the whole nation publicly.
