Uganda’s President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has revealed that police is to arrest people claiming that the Fallen Speaker of Parliament Jacob Oulanyah was killed.

Museveni who was addressing parliament revealed that their arrest will informed by the need to get more information and help in the investigations of the allegations.

“Police are going to come and ask you to tell us because you seem to have information. We cannot go on with this indiscipline. It’s not constructive at all, especially from some people who are educated and claim to be leaders. We are going to go for them,” said Museveni

“I would like to warn some people who are in the habit of taking advantage of problems to make cheap politics. And actually we’re going to go for them because I have heard some people saying some people killed Oulanyah. The police will come and ask you to give them some information because Oulanyah did not die in a private home,” Museveni added

The development follow comments by Oulanyah’s father and other leaders in the north  who claimed that Oulanyah had been poisoned

“I know all of you who have come here are mourners. His (Oulanyah’s) death is not easy news to welcome because I know he did not die of natural causes, he was poisoned. I know very well that he was poisoned, and whatever somebody will say tomorrow should not distort the information we now have,” Nathan Okori told mourners earlier this week.

However, the claims were dismissed bt the  Minister for ICT and National Guidance, Chris Baryomunsi who said an official postmortem report will soon be released by the Seattle hospital where Oulanyah had been admitted and breathed his last from.
