Dokolo County member of Parliament Hon Cicilia Ogwal has apologized to President Yoweri Museveni for previously rebuking his handling of the Covid19 Pandemic, including his decision to close down all places of worship for nearly 7 months.
Hon Ogwal, who over the past months on the floor of parliament has been vocal in castigating government’s handling of the pandemic, admitted Thursday afternoon at State House Entebbe that she was wrong in condemning the president.
“I know some of the decisions you took made some of us uncomfortable and I never kept quiet condemning you for locking up the churches; but I thank the Lord because he spoke to me and said, ‘But I did not say I only exist in the church,’” Ogwal said.
“Although I condemned you, I want to say that I am sorry,” she added.
The 74-year-old was speaking today that annual National Prayer Breakfast event which usually precedes the Independence day celebrations.
At the event, Ogwal went on to describe President Yoweri Museveni as a parent, and thanked him for supporting religious rights.
“Thank you for being a good parent. In this pandemic I think the Head of State has shown he is a parent,” Ogwal said.
Thank you for opening the gates to us every time we want to seek the lord and we thank God that you as the team leader has always been with us.
