Gen Odongo defies Fr Lokodo’s orders to block Nyege Nyege festival

Internal Affairs Minister Gen. Jeje Odongo and the Ethics and Integrity Minister, Fr Simon Lokodo

 

Internal Affairs Minister Gen. Jeje Odongo has reportedly defied orders of his Cabinet colleague, the Ethics and Integrity Minister, Fr Simon Lokodo to stop the Nyege Nyege festival in Jinja District in Eastern Uganda at the weekend.

Addressing journalists at Uganda Uganda Media (UMC) in Kampala on Tuesday evening, Fr Lokodo said he had written to police to ensure that the event doesn’t take place.

Mr Lokodo said government has information that open sex, noise, homosexuality, LGBTI will be part of this event he described as an ugly thing and close to devil worshiping.

However, UMC executive director and government Spokesperson, Mr Ofwono Opondo posted via Twitter, hours later, that the government had not cancelled the event.
“Just spoken to Internal Affairs Minister Gen. J. J. Odongo, he states Nyege Nyege organisers should go ahead with preparations for their function. Further review meeting involving all stakeholders is scheduled for 10.00am tomorrow [Wednesday],” Mr Opondo posted on his Twitter handle.
