Uganda: Some Leaders Owe Citivzens an Apology

column

ITS a few days since the fugitive lover of the late Celinah Nebanda came out confessing the unfortunate demise of the legislature. He chronologically unveiled the circumstances into which the late took her last breath. This is contrary to what we had been made to believe by some leaders.

They made us believe the Government was responsible for her demise due to her outspokenness. Despite, the official police toxicological report most legislatures refuted the findings. Our media especially broadcast (radios) in the suburbs was dominated by opinions of the political leaders refuting the report.

What has been left to us is to make judgment of the hullaballoo by most politicians, was it a result of grieve at the untimely demise of a colleague or was it a political game? If it was a result of grieve may God console, guide and above all give them a sense of judgment in times of trial but if it was their ulterior motives, may the law take its cause.

Amidst all these revelations none of the Members of Parliament has yet come out to offer an apology to the masses. Is it that they don't know the impact of their words to community or it was an intended action, which failed to meet its objective? Their failure to apologise after confessions have been made, makes us believe their outbursts were not as a result of grieve.

The people are still confused. This can only be cleared if these politicians came out and apologised for misleading the masses.

Rather than recalling Parliament to discuss why some MPs were arrested, they should convene to apologise to the public for misleading most of us.
