Gen.Elly Tumwiine has issued his first statement following his clearance on the alleged assault charges pressed by the Dokolo county MP, Cecilia Ogwal.
Gen. Tumwiine who has been under investigation by the parliamentary disciplinary committee has been cleared of all the charges. The lead complainant, Ogwal had made claims that the bush war general had pointed a gun at him during a verbal clash in one of the corridors of parliament. Cecilia Ogwal relied on a CCTV footage to implicate Gen. Tumwiine on the bully claims. Surprisingly, the same retrieved footage was aired before the committee and it was proved that the General did not point any gun at her.
On the issued of the ‘we fought’ narrative, Gen. Tumwiine in his tough words said, “Whoever asks me to not talk about where we’ve come from should know that the preamble of our constitution starts like that. Let lies that are being propagated be challenged,”
It should be remembered that Health minister, Sarah Opendi was the first NRM stalwart to side with Cecilia Ogwal. She labelled him a bully and confirmed he is an arrogant figure.
