Archbishop Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga was found dead in his room on Saturday after looking frail at the Long Friday march in Kampala. Now on Monday the Post Mortem have revealed his sickness and reasoning behind it.
Alas, with these cases, at lot of speculations arises and that is because of the political climate the state has created. All the secrecy, the usage of security organization and military involvement in politics. As well, as the public prosecution and abductions of detractors.
All of this create this distrust between state agencies and all communications alike. Especially, when cases are ice-cold. People ends up missing. Stories never ending and uncertainty if the security agencies will resolve all the loose ends. They are just out and about …. and nothing is ever happening.
This is an reoccurring issue. Where the state and its organizations are involved. The person who is missing or abducted will not reported. The state will not say or state its whereabouts. The close family will never see a reason for the arrest, detention or kidnap. No, they are as lost as the general public in this regard.
This is happening all while the high ranking official acts clueless and the appointed leadership of the security outfits are mum. That is why the public distrust a Post Mortem. The sudden death of a activist and opposition to the regime. Just like the never ended investigations into the murders of Muslim Clerics, Boxers and whatnot. They all went missing and came up dead. However, nothing have happened to their cases. Just like Kaweesi, Abiriga or any other high ranking murder of late. These just ends with nothing like they never happened in the first place.
That is why the public distrust the reports on the Archbishop of Kampala. They are not trusting or having faith in the system. A system that is rigged against anybody else. A system only built for one man and his elite. The rest have to follow and if they don’t… they will end up in the ditch with the others who opposed his reign.
This is why its easy to understand conspiracies and speculations. There will be questions and people wondering. With so many cases never resolved. They will start to speculate on the current one. Since there is no need to dwell on the old ones. As everyone knows they will not be dealt with anyway.
If Lwanga died naturally or not doesn’t matter at this point. That’s because of the political climate the brasses at the top has created. This is their making with their incompetent and distrustful security agencies, which only serves the purpose of intimidating and assaulting the general public. Nevertheless, the same agencies doesn’t have the detectives, the case-workers or the ones to settle these cases. If it did… they surely hidden in some basement or under a lock-and-key since nobody have ever seen them.
The Archbishop deserves to be remembered for what he did and not how he died. The Archbishop was his own man and stood steadfast on his own merit. However, this case only shows what sowing these seeds over time does. The fruits of dishonesty, poisoning of the wells and the lies will in the bite the authorities in the ass. Nobody will ever trust them or have faith in their work. Since, everything is concealed and kept behind closed doors. If not… they are never doing a days work. These folks never gets any results or they never tried in the first place. Peace.
