The family of the late ex-minister Hajj Akbar Adoko Nekyon has disassociated its self from the letter circulating on social media which alleges that he was killed.

In a press release by Engena Maitum, one of the family members, the family says none of them instructed Makmot, Kibwanga and Company Advocates to file a complaint to Uganda Police to investigate the possible homicide in the death of Hajj Nekyon.

According to Maitum, the deceased had been indisposed for some time, he suffered a stroke on 18 March,2018 and he was admitted at Florence Nightingale, Apac district from where he was relocated and admitted at Nsambya Hospital Kampala on 19 March, 2018. He was later discharged on 18 April, 2018 and died on 4th May, 2018 at his home in Nsambya.

“The family is not involved in any squabbles for the property of Hajj Akbar Nekyon and the contents of the letter attributed to the family, to say the least, smack  malice , ill will and derision. It is regrettable and extremely unfortunate,” said Maitum.
