FDC deletes tweet Alleging Dep. IGP Lokech Was Murdered

FDC deletes tweet Alleging Dep. IGP Lokech Was Murdered

Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has deleted a tweet in which they alleged that the death of Deputy Inspector General of Police Maj Gen Paul Lokech to have been caused by the sitting government.

Following the death of Gen Lokech yesterday, FDC released a statement on Twitter in which they claimed that Paul Lokech “joins thousands that have been killed and murdered by this regime…”

The tweet has since drawn mass criticism and mixed reactions with some fans pinning them for saying reckless statements at such a time.

“Stop politicizing everything guys, mupapanyo nebigambo, you are embarrassing the party leadership and our Dr Besigye, stop it,” Noah Ssenabulya tweeted.

“So he doesn’t join your people who died of causes other than being ‘killed or murdered’ as you allege? We have not known you for cowardice, come out openly and say what you want to say about him since you seem not to respect the dead!” Thomas Obita.

However, in response, FDC said they did not insinuate that Gen Lokech was murdered by the regime, rather that he joined several who had died under the regime’s hand.

The Tweet that has been deleted

“We aren’t alleging or confirming that Maj Paul was killed or murdered. It’s by his death that he will join thousands of our people that have been murdered and killed by this regime. Let’s get facts right!!!”

The clarification did not make things any better, instead, it further infuriated tweeps who called for the party to issue an apology and delete the tweet.

The tweet has been pulled down from their timeline.

According to a statement from UPDF, Lokech died at his home on Saturday morning.

The IGP Martin Okoth Ochola has directed the Director of Medical Services, Dr Moses Byaruhanga to carry out a post-mortem to establish the cause of death.
