Rwenzururu Guards To Appear In Court Today

The three royal guards attached to the Obusinga Bwa Rwenzururu cultural institution in Kasese district that were arrested over the weekend are due to appear in court today.

The district police commander, Martin Tukahebwa says the suspects’ case files are ready.

The trio is believed to have crossed to Bundibugyo in what is seen as re-organization for fresh ethnic clashes in the sub region.

The suspects were found in possession of dangerous weapons at Njanja Masaka in Mirambi sub county Bundibugyo district.

Tukahebwa says they were also found carrying dangerous weapons like batons, knives, sharp swords as well as UPDF boots and belts.

On Saturday another royal guard of the Obusinga bwa Rwenzururu was shot dead as he allegedly resisted arrest by police at Bigando in Kasese district.

The incident left one police officer, Amos Mutamba critically injured and was rushed to Kilembe hospital where he is still admitted.
