Police summon Oulanyah’s father and Bobi Wine over poison investigations. As political calm returns to the country in the wake of fallen Speaker, Jacob Oulanyah Lokori, new drama keeps cropping up in regards to his passing.
Police have summoned the father of the fallen speaker, National Unity Platform (NUP) President Robert Kyagulanyi (Bobi Wine), Vice-chairman NRM Buganda, Godfrey Kiwanda, MP Gilbert Oulanya, and Minister Chris Baryomunsi to assist with ongoing investigations surrounding allegations that the late speaker was poisoned.
This comes in the wake of the country’s president, Yoweri Museveni, warning the citizenry against engaging in unfounded allegations surrounding the fallen speaker’s death, lest they be summoned to assist the police with investigations pertaining to the matter.
The allegations were kicked off by the late speaker’s dad, who reported to the media that his son confessed to him that he was poisoned.
Bobi Wine, the leader of NUP, further noted that he wanted police to speed up investigations surrounding the passing of the leader.
Godfrey Kiwanda, the former mister of tourism and ruling NRM Vice Chairperson, also fueled the allegations, disclosing that the late Speaker of Parliament, told him that he was poisoned.
Kiwanda made these allegations while appearing on Capital FM’s “The Capital Gang” show.
Kiwanda noted that as much as Oulanyah had other underlying illnesses, the fact that he was poisoned should not be ruled out.
“Yes, he told me he was poisoned, and he asked me not to tell anyone. However, I disclosed it to Hon Chris Baryomunsi, “said Kiwanda.
Kiwanda added that Oulanyah’s condition worsened after 4-5 months.
Kiwanda’s claims came just a day after Nathan L’Okori, the father of Oulanyah, insisted that his son did not die of natural causes but was poisoned.
According to police spokesperson Fred Enanga, tests performed on the deceased’s body indicate that no form of poison was in the fallen giant’s body and therefore all parties harboring information that Oulanyah was poisoned are to be called to the police to assist with investigations.
