The Minister of Justice had been asked by the President to represent him at the conference organised by ULGA for district leaders.

Minister of Ethics and Integrity, Simon Lokodo, has condemned the behaviour of LC5 chairpersons towards Gen. Kahinda Otafiire, the Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs.

On Saturday during the Uganda Local Government Association (UGLA) meeting, the LC5 chairpersons barred Otafiire from addressing them with some resorting to splashing water on him claiming that they only wanted to hear from President Yoweri Museveni. 

Lokodo said that the incident was unfortunate and advised leaders to learn to control their emotions even when they do not agree with whatever is happening.

“He has been sent as an envoy of the President. Get his message and if the message is not satisfactory, they would still send him to relay their message in a polite and humble way” Lokodo said.

“I’m learning now that those who did that were actually members of the opposition so they took advantage to express disgruntlement about government” he added.

Otafiire had been asked by the President to represent him at the conference organised by the Uganda Local government Association (ULGA) for district leaders including LC5, LC3 chairpersons, district speakers and sub county chairpersons at the Mandela National Stadium Namboole, in Wakiso district.

The over 800 district leaders had gathered in Namboole, to brief the President on some of the challenges they face as district leaders.
