25 Suspected Rwenzori Attackers Charged With Murder

At least 40 suspected Rwenzori attackers have been charged with murder.

Fred Enanga, the police spokesperson says 25 suspects have been charged with murder in Bundibugyo and seven in Kasese while four have been charged with attempted murder, arson and aggravated robbery.

The conflicts that broke up following the February controversial elections left over 45 people killed while others survived with  injuries.

In Bundibugyo the most affected sub-counties include Ntotoro, Busaru, Kirumya and Bubukwanga where house houses burnt to ashes and cocoa plantations cut down.

In Kasese the clashes broke out at Kasenyi village in Busongora North Constituency where a video of a soldier shooting dead a civilian armed with a stick was captured.

Others places that were affected by the clashes include Hima town council and Kasese Municipality.

Security forces have since arrested over 200 people suspected to be members of Kirumiramuthma militia group that is accused of masterminding the killings.
