DP ‘still in contact with Onzivua’
Posted Friday, January 4 2013 at 02:00
The Democratic Party is still in touch with Dr Sylvester Onzivua, the pathologist hired to conduct a search for their founding president Benedicto Kiwanuka’s remains.
Speculation had arisen, following the doctor’s involvement in the controversial death last month of Butaleja Woman MP Cerinah Nebanda.
DP president Norbert Mao told the Daily Monitor yesterday that Dr Onzivua was a professional and the Nebanda saga did not affect his ongoing assignments and other obligations.
Mr Mao said Dr Onzivua was the one who linked the party with experts from Argentina, who will help them find the exact place where Kiwanuka was buried.
Shortly before his arrest, Dr Onzivua had just returned from South Africa, where together with a team of other experts, he had just examined the remains of African National Congress leaders, who were exhumed after 20 years.
“We have two possible sites in Nakasongola near the barracks and Luzira, but we cannot do anything without the experts because the place is very big,” Mr Mao said.
The search will continue in February and March, according to the timetable of the experts.
