By Francis Mugerwa

Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom has offered to play a mediation role in the raging violent conflict in Rwenzoro sub region that has left over a hundred people dead.

According to the Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom Prime Minister Norman Lukumu, the unrest was unfortunate and could have been avoided.

The Omukama of Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom Solomon Gafabusa Iguru  is the chairperson of the Uganda cultural leaders Forum, a platform that unites traditional leaders in the country.

Lukumu says the King of Bunyoro and other Kings have potential to mediate in the conflict with a view of restoring peace and stability in the restive Rwenzori region.

The Rwenzururu King Wesley Mumbere who is facing charges of murder, terrorism and attempted murder is on remand at Luzira maximum prison.
