Mityana municipality legislator Zaake Francis Butebi has today lashed out at the Minister for Information and National guidance, Judith Nabakooba over trying to ‘cover up’ for the Government regarding the demise of the now fallen Kampala Archbishop, Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga.
The outspoken MP and the Minister were both attending the Easter service at the Roman Catholic diocese in Kiyinda, Mityana district. MP Zaake used the pulpit to raise questions regarding the unexpected demise of Dr. Lwanga. “Like we all saw, the Archbishop was very well and healthy on Good Friday and even led the way of the cross,” MP Zaake told the congregation. “I was shocked and up to now I’m in total disbelief that the Archbishop had died. I received a call from the Rubaga hospital executive director who confirmed to me that our spiritual leader was no more. We seek for answers,” the doubtful MP retorted.
Minister Nabakooba rebuts
The Minister for Information and National guidance who was in attendance of the service appealed for audience and rebutted to the comments of MP Zaake. “We cannot discuss about the death of our Archbishop in such a way. Only Rubaga and medical experts will tell the nation how exactly the Archbishop died. They will issue the postmortem report. I urge the public to remain calm as we mourn our fallen leader,” she said.
The Minister was also disturbed by MP Zaake’s declaration that NUP presidential candidate Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert aka Bobi Wine won the 2021 polls. “You see we all have a system where we make our appeals and concerns. These people withdrew their case from court meaning they conceded. It’s not time for politics. Leave the people to work,” she added.
