No mercy for royal guards after expiry of amnesty-Kasese RDC vows

UJK editorial

The Kasese RDC Maj. James Mwesigye has extended Amnesty to the Royal guards who are still at run up to Easter celebrations after which there will be no massy.

Maj. James made the remarks while addressing residents of Kasangali market in Bwesumbu sub county, Kasese district.

This comes after the chairperson for Bwesumbu Sub County requested for the extension of amnesty since they were remaining with four days.

Following the last November clashes in Kasese which left 150 royalists to Rwenzururu including the King arrested with over 100 hundred loyalists dead, many of the royal guards that were in the villages went on the run in fear to be arrested.

The RDC used the same opportunity to advise people to fight poverty if they are to have a better future in communities.

The Vice chairperson for Kasese district Mr. Elly Magwara also emphasized the need for residents to impress the education of their children.

Magwara wondered why some schools in Bwesumbu have as low as seventy pupils as enrollment despite having seven classes at the school.

He advised people to work hard and leave a legacy in communities.

Bwesumbu is among the sub counties in the hard to reach areas of Kasese where early marriages, child labour are rampant due to low education level.

Despite government programs to fight poverty by establishment of revolving funds, the area has never had about some of these.

Kabugho Zaulia a resident of Kasithu village says many women in their localities lack information on funds released by government.
