Obote says sorry

PRESIDENT Obote of Uganda has apologised to Cardinal Nsubuga, Archbishop of Kampala for the action of armed soldiers who broke up an Ash Wednesday Mass in Kampala Cathedral after guerrillas had used high ground nearby to fire mortars on the city.

The Cardinal had asked for an apology after the incident and in a meeting last week the president told him that the army must observe the law.

Cardinal Nsubuga is reported to have agreed to a joint statement with the President underlining the need for law and order. President Obote agreed to investigate complaints of looting and unwarranted arrests by troops.
