Remembering Ben Kiwanuka, Bobi Wine Stings Justice Owiny Dollo

Bobi Wine has questioned the possibility of Justice Owiny Dollo ever standing before first Prime Minister and former Chief Justice, Ben Kiwanuka.

A memorial mass was held at Rubaga Cathedral to mark the 50th anniversary since Chief Justice Benedicto Kiwanuka was murdered in 1972 during Amin’s regime. Bobi Wine wondered if Justice Dollo can ever look Ben Kiwanuka in the eye.

“In presence was current Chief Justice Mr. Owiny Dollo. Like every body else, Mr. Dollo praised Ben Kiwanuka for standing by the values of Truth and Justice. This he had to pay with his life after granting bail to a prisoner against the illegal orders of President Iddi Amin.”

“I wondered if Mr. Dollo would have the guts to look Kiwanuka in the eye if he were alive today. Considering the Dollo-led Judiciary’s complicity in the oppression of citizens by the regime which uses the judiciary as another tool of oppression,” he added.

Kiwanuka was murdered on the orders of then president, Idi Amin. A number of reports indicate that he was abducted from his chambers at the High Court in Kampala.

They dumped him into a waiting car and taken to an unknown place. Till today, his body has never been found.

5 things you didn’t know about idi Amin Dada

In other story by NEWSLEXPOINT.com, at 193 cm (6 ft 4 in) tall and powerfully built, Idi Amin Dada was the Ugandan light heavyweight boxing champion from 1951 to 1960, as well as a swimmer. Now before you go rising up in arms, just know we are all humans and therefore prone to mistakes. Field Marshal, Alhaji, Doctor Idi Amin Dada was no different.

The country witnessed gruesome killings during his tenure especially from the army and police. It isn’t any different now, is it? This however shouldn’t deter us from acknowledging the good things the man did during the 8 years he was at the helm of power.
