The Member of Parliament elect for elderly western Uganda Can. Joram Tibasiimwa has hailed the late Archbishop Janan Luwum for being extremely brave and telling the dictator Idd Amin Dada that extra judicial killings and abductions of Ugandans at the time were bad.
Joram Tibassimwa said this today 16th Feb.2021 in an exclusive interview with www.mknewslink.com managing editor at Friends hotel in Bushenyi town.
Can. Tibasiimwa added that Late Janan Luwum loved his country so much since some of the bishops like Kivengere fled the country but he chose to remain in the country until his death.
Idd Amin being a dictator, it was difficult for anyone to challenge him but due to Janan Luwum’s brevity, he stood his ground and challenged him even when he knew it could lead to his death.
Archbishop Janan Luwum was assassinated in 16th Feb.1977 by soldiers of the then president of Uganda Idd Amin Dada.
Today is a public holiday in the memory of the archbishop Janan Luwum after President Museveni declared it some years back.
