Widows of former Rwenzururu Royal Guards are appealing to government for support to enable them engage in income-generating activities.

Peace Kabugho, the chairperson of the widows, who stay in Kasese Municipality, says most of her colleagues are grappling with how to fend for their families during this lock down period.

According to Kabugho, the 94 widows, whose husbands died in the 2016 raid on the Omusinga’s palace, are yet to come to terms with being the sole bread winners of their homes.

She argues that since these are hard economic times, government should consider extending support to them through their group: Kasese Municipality Bakwakali Group.

Angela Kiiza, a 33-year-old mother of 4 children, says five years after the death of her husband Augustine Kitokwa, only hope keeps her moving adding that taking  care of all her children remains huge a burden to bear.
