Chief Justice Alphonse Owiny-Dollo has made a pubic apology for comments he made at the vigil of the late Jacob Oulanyah, alleging that the “leader of an ethnic group” had been flown to Germany for treatment aboard the presidential jet.

Justice Owiny-Dollo, has since apologised to Kabaka Mutebi and pledged to engage the leadership at Mengo to ensure good working relations going forward.

“I hereby unequivocally, unreservedly and of my free volition, wholly retract that reference and also hereby tender my apology to His Majesty the Kabaka. I will communicate to the Katikkiro of Buganda in writing,” Owiny-Dollo wro in his apology which was released to the public .

The apology comes amidst the heavy criticism Owiny-Dollo has faced from various groups over his ‘tribal’ comments.

Last week, Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga issued a statement calling for calm and cool headedness among leaders, as the country mourned Oulanyah.

Mayiga, in a veiled barb aimed at Owiny-Dollo, confirmed that Kabaka had indeed travelled to Germany for treatment using KLM Airlines.

Robert Kyagulanyi, the leader of National Unity Platform and other opposition leaders had called on Owiny- Dollo to apologise for his comments.
