President Yoweri Museveni has accused kinkizi East Member of Parliament Dr Chris Baryomunsi of stealing the Late Cerinah Nebanda’s body samples from Mulago Hospital.
The President made this accusation yesterday at State House Nakasero while addressing the media over the death of the former Butaleja woman Member of Parliament who passed away on December 14th at Mukwaya Clinic in Kampala.
This was a day after the burial of the fallen woman Member of Parliament in Butaleja that was marred by chaos as angry mourners blocked government representatives from delivering President Museveni’s condolence message.
Dr Chris Baryomunsi was among those who took part in carrying out the post mortem at Mulago Hospital when Nebanda passed away.
“Baryomunsi who was called in to help the hospital and Police pathologists decided to steal samples together with his colleagues” the President said.
The President also faulted Members of Parliament for going to the mortuary saying it is unheard of for lawmakers to go to the mortuary.
The death of the former vocal MP has since been shrouded in mystery with many disputing the government explanation about her demise.
An autopsy report released on Saturday evening by Ministry of Health Officials revealed that chemicals such as cocaine, heroin and alcohol were found in the blood samples of the deceased, a report that has since been dismissed by her colleagues and family members.
President Museveni however reiterated that government did not kill the late Nebanda saying his NRM government does not kill unarmed enemies.
There have been rumours that the government could have had a hand in the death of the fallen MP but the President rubbished the allegations.
He added that he treated with contempt those spreading such unfounded statements saying they are “idiots, fools”.
The President however, added “that Nebanda was either knowingly or unknowingly in the company of drug users and sellers is incontestable.
President Museveni defended Police’s action of arresting the Doctor hired by the family of the deceased to take body samples to South Africa for further examination.
Dr Sylvestre Onzivua was arrested at Entebbe International Airport on his way to South Africa, however the President said the Doctor was not acting within the law and that is why he was apprehended.
The President concluded by advising Parents to watch the company of their children saying the late Nebanda could have been a victim of bad company.
