The Bushenyi district Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) party chairperson, Edward Rurangaranga, has appealed to his former colleague in the Milton Obote government, Chris Rwakasisi, to leave politics and concentrate on religion.

Rurangaranga said politics was characterised by vote rigging, intimidation and quarrels. He was on Sunday speaking at a thanks-giving service at Kabwohe Church of Uganda in Bushenyi district.

The service was held to welcome Rwakasisi back from prison. The planning minister, Ephraim Kamuntu, appealed to Rwakasisi to let go of anger, bitterness and forgive all those who wronged him.

Rwakasisi said before he was arrested, he had 1,600 head of cattle but found nothing when he was released.

He, however, said he had forgiven those who looted his property. “I will not entertain people who will come to tell me who stole my property,” he said.

Early this year, the President pardoned Rwakasisi after spending 24 years on death row in Luzira Prison.

He was sentenced to death after being found guilty of six counts of kidnap, committed while a minister during the Obote II regime.
