It is o.k after damage is done and they want to prove to be innocent. They should be retained for all atrocities committed. Many are loosing their lives without justifiable cause. Some of the assigned MP's are not responding to funneral rites within the clan. It just happened. What are they looking for. Reflect on the recent response you have displayed to the people supposedly voted you in. What a shame!!!

At least we have an MP at Okollo who would even attend to An Elders funneral rite. But no, Chose to embark on land issue with the brothers. Let their souls rest in peace. Remember that is not acceptable in ethinicity and cultural values.There will be a time when you will recall it my brother. Do the right now ...

Former presidents should be immune from prosecution once they leave office. Not only is this logical, but an enticement for presidents to surrender power and not cling to it because they are afraid of persecution and prosecution.

No way the cartoon in Uganda should be charged for looting and depriving Ugandans funds met to improve their lives. Retiring in prison will make many happy.
