Godfrey Kiwanda, the National Resistance Movement’s (NRM) vice chairman for the Buganda region, has stated that the late Jacob Oulanyah confided in him that he had been poisoned.
Kiwanda stated that this is true that Oulanuah was going through the known underlying illness. What he said before his death cannot be easily dismissed.
On Saturday, the NRM’s number four and former minister made these remarks while appearing on Capital FM’s political talk show.
According to Kiwanda, “I find no disallowance with Oulanyah’s father who claimed that his son was poisoned, the late Rt. Hon Jacob Oulanyah told me too he was poisoned.”
Furthermore, Kiwanda stated that when Oulanyah told him that he had a doubt that he was poisoned, he then asked him not to tell anyone at the time.
“But, I disclosed it to Hon Baryomunsi” Kiwanda revealed.
Kiwanda’s statements come after the grave Oulanyah in Lalogi, Omoro District, on Friday. The deceased’s father, Nathan Okori, reaffirmed that his son did not die naturally or because of any illness but was in fact, poisoned.
According to Okori statements that the poison was the one that affected his health, and by the time he was flown out of the country for treatment in the Seattle, United States of America. However, it was too late to save him.
Furthermore, Oulanyah’s father revealed that Jacob Oulanyah was poisoned. He told me. And he was operated on, doctors tried hard to deal with the poison, but the poison affected his health so badly that he was left in a condition where it is difficult to recover.
Last week, President Museveni alerted members of the public, mainly politicians, against creating claims that the late Oulanyah was killed, stating that soon police will come for them.
According to the statement of Museveni, which he gave last Friday at Kololo independence ground, “I want to warn to those who are in the habit of taking advantage of problems so that they can make cheap politics. And actually, we’re going to go for them because I have heard some people saying some people killed Oulanyah. Then the police will surely come to you to ask you to give them proof on which they are claiming that Jacob was killed, not die.
By the time of declaring and writing this report, It was not yet clear if police would follow up on the statements of Kiwanda and the late speaker’s father.
