SIR— The Anglican Archbishop of Uganda, Livingstone Mpalanyi Nkoyoyo, is reported to have praised the late dictator Idi Amin as a leader who respected other religions besides Islam.

Sometimes there can be printing mistakes. But if that was not the case, I wish to ask Archbishop Nkoyoyo a few questions:

1. How old was he when Amin butchered Archbishop Janan Luwum on February 17, 1977?

2. How sane was he when Amin sent Church of Uganda bishops and other priests scampering abroad for dear life and asylum?

Take the examples of the late Yona Okoth, then bishop of Bukedi Diocese, Nicodemus Okille (Okoth’s successor in Bukedi), Bishop Festo Kivengere of Kigezi Diocese then and Bishop Benon Ogwal of Northern Uganda.

3. How many Ugandans
suffered under Amin’s nine-year rule of terror?

I did not expect such words of praise to come out of Nkoyoyo’s mouth.

Possibly he should have acknowledged to the people of this country to forgive but not to forget the brutality Amin visited on the people of this country. If it was not a slip of a tongue, then I might soon have lost my little confidence in Nkoyoyo.

Retract your statements or re-affirm with valid reasons.
