The youth wing in the Rwenzururu Kingdom want the Prime Minister Mr.Henry Kandabu to resign with immediate effects on grounds that he has been incompetent. In a letter signed by the youth known as Esyomango Syo’businga dated  April 7th and addressed to the Prime minister, they accuse Mr. Kandabu of failing to convene cabinet meetings to discuss the matters of the Kingdom.

The letter signed by about two hundred seventy youths led by the Chairman of Esyomango Mr. Mitusera Kule Sebayanda is copied to the Omusinga Charles Wesley Mumbere Iremangoma, kingdom attorney general,
minister for youths and scouts, speaker to the House of Representatives and minister for Royal security.
The Esyomango claim that the Prime Minister has failed to mobilize for the wide visibility of the Kingdom, lacks income generation plans and not addressing problems like payment of rent for the administrative offices.

They also accuse him of failing to claim clear ownership of Engeya radio which was reportedly donated to the Kingdom by the central government.
There are reports that the main offices of the Kingdom in Kasese town have been temporarily closed for failure to clear outstanding rent bills.
However, Mr. Kandabu was not available for the comment because he could not pick his phone calls by press time.
But the Kingdom spokesperson Mr. Patrick Nyamunungu says a cabinet meeting was called this evening to discuss the letter and resolved to meet with their executive as soon as possible.
Mr. Nyamunungu says that by the constitution of the Kingdom, it is only the Omusinga who is supposed to fire or force a resignation of the prime minister.
He asked the “Syomangu” to remain calm as cabinet ministers look forward to meeting them.
