Or dear, poverty has really eaten the morals of this country, am trying to imagine that Daniel Lubowa was among the mourners, how then could he steal mabugo of all things.

In the same vein, am also shocked that museveni only sent 10m for the burial of such a man who was killed by his predecessor for telling the truth

The Uganda youngsters should understand that Museveni used to play double -standards/games during the struggle against Amin.

Obote found that out and they never liked each other from that day on. Luwum could have been betrayed and scrafied by such people like him.

Many of the murderous so-called states research agents of Amin, came from a particular region (anybody's guess; mostly light skinned wemen who where used to spy) and was not Amin 's region.

Quoting Lysol:
The Uganda youngsters should understand that Museveni used to play double -standards/games during the struggle against Amin.

Obote found that out and they never liked each other from that day on. Luwum could have been betrayed and scrafied by such people like him.

Many of the murderous so-called states research agents of Amin, came from a particular region (anybody's guess; mostly light skinned wemen who where used to spy) and was not Amin 's region.


In other words Lysol, the letter which Amin paraded at Nile Hotel, and it became the death sentence of Bishop Luwum, Oryema and Oboth, was authored by the saboteurs in the Fronasa.

This was because the spelling of the plural for the two tribes namely: Acholi (Acoli) and Langi had "s" at the ends.

Having known Amin's temperament, the letter was a provocation set up, to get Amin to murder these innocent citizens.

You have got to give it to this Lubowa chap; what grit and wit indeed.

Imagine the planning involved in the execution of this act; I don't think I have that stamina and brain, oh dear me to travel from Kawempe to Mucwini and commit the crime successfully.

The logistics involved is amazing (don't get me wrong I respect this was after all a funeral). This chap should be be excused!

Am wondering whether ugandans are saved, this kind of killings shows that we are EVIL.

Killing is not a solution to a problem what if killing was the only solution to sort problems how many people would be in this world.
