“Madiba taught us that an opponent need not be humiliated or stripped of his or her freedom in order for us to achieve our own liberation,” Okello revealed.


He added:”We have been able to learn that liberation and freedom can only truly be meaningful when both victims and villains are set free to attain their full humanity.”


Okello further stated that in Nelson Mandela’s death, humanity has been lessened; but at the same time, humanity is forever enriched by the lessons of his life and enduring legacies.

Below is the party’s full statement


The Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) joins our ANC Comrades; South African and Ugandan Compatriots; Africans; and the world, to pause to mark the passing and remember the life of a global icon; the world’s foremost moral conscience and conciliator; Nelson Mandela!


Madiba taught us that an opponent need not be humiliated or stripped of his or her freedom in order for us to achieve our own liberation.


That in freedom, we must not exchange our shackles and chains for the iron whips, jackboots and batons of the oppressors.


And that liberation and freedom can only truly be meaningful when both victims and villains are set free to attain their full humanity.


As Ugandans, South Africans and Africans, we should rightly and immensely be proud of Madiba’s legacies; he was no longer South African; African; or a black man; he was our common humanity: white, black, yellow, and brown.


We are grateful to South Africa for giving him to the world.


Together, we bid him goodbye; we celebrate a life well lived; and we memorialise and aspire to live his legacies of humility, forgiveness and reconciliation as the cornerstones for communal social peace and strong and stable nationhood.


In his death, humanity has been lessened; but at the same time, humanity is forever enriched by the lessons of his life and enduring legacies.
