Security in Kasese warns general public against getting involved in any form of demonstrations following a bounced motion to erect a monument of the first King of Rwenzururu at the Roundabout

Security operatives in Kasese district have warned the general public against getting involved in any form of demonstrations following a bounced motion to erect a monument of the Rwenzururu Kingdom’s first King, Isaya Mukirania Kibanzanga at the Roundabout in Kasese town.

A private member’s motion seeking the Central Division Council to adopt the erection of a monument of the inaugural King was to be presented by Jane Biira, the councilor representing Kidodo cell but to her disappointment, the matter did not appear on the order paper.

According to Biira, she had allegedly submitted the motion to the Office of the Clerk to Council on February 18, 2022 and was thus surprised that the speaker had not included it on the order paper for discussion.

Following the incident, some councilors including the Division Chairperson, stormed out of the council session, forcing it to end prematurely.

Now, on Saturday, the Kasese Deputy Resident District Commissioner, Joshua Kisembo Masereka told Rwenzori Daily that they had landed on a letter signed by the Kasese District FDC Chairperson, Saulo Maate calling for a peaceful demonstration slated for Wednesday next week over the matter.

When contacted, Maate acknowledged ownership of the letter and said he was waiting for response from the office of the RDC for another course of action.

Maate supported the move by the councilors to storm out of the council sitting, arguing that the speaker did not portray the qualities of a good leader.

However, the Deputy RDC said the demonstration was uncalled for because of its associated outcomes.

He, on the other hand, condemned the manner in which the councilors stormed out of the council session, forcing it to end prematurely but also blamed the speaker for his actions of not allowing the motion to be included on the order paper.

Masereka also suggested that the motion would have been much better if it was presented and handled by the District Council and the Office of the Prime Minister of the Obusinga Bwa Rwenzururu with consultations from the Royal family, saying it is beyond the managerial capacity of the Central Division. According to him, the monument would be safer if it was constructed in another place but not exactly at the roundabout which might be tempered with during the road construction works.
