Omusinga Doubts Kayihura Impartiality On Kasese Clashes

The Omusinga of Rwenzururu Kingdom Charles Wesley Mumbere has called for an independent investigation into the Rwenzori clashes that have left close to 30 people dead.

Mumbere has cast doubt on the impartiality of the Police Chief Gen Kale Kayihura in the investigations.

Gen. Kayihura who visited Rwenzori region recently, initially linked the clashes to a pro-Kingdom militia group militia, an accusation the Kingdom vehemently denies.

Speaking at a news conference held shortly after the clashes broke out, Gen Kayihura denied accusations of bias promising a thorough investigation.

However, addressing a congregation at St. Paul’s cathedral in Kasese during Easter Monday prayers, Mumbere said Gen Kayihura alone cannot resolve the puzzle of these clashes.

This comes a day after president Museveni also visited the area to assess the security situation.
