Inspector General of Police visits Rwenzururu

The inspector General of police Gen. Kale Kayihura last evening paid a short visit to the Buhikira Royal palace where he had talks with Omusinga Charles Wesley Mumbere Iremangoma.
His visit comes just two days to the much anticipated peace day celebration that will be held in Bundibugyo district on Sunday June 30. But the celebrations are contested by the Bamba who claim that the cultural space in Bundibugyo belongs to the yet to be recognized Obundingiya Bwa Bwamba cultural institution.
On arrival in the palace, Gen. Kayihura handed gifts to the Omusinga before going in for one on one talks that last for over two hours from 7pm to about 9pm.
After the meeting, Gen. Kayihura left the palace without speaking to the press about the reason he came for the talks with the Omusinga.
The minister of information and Kingdom spokesperson Patrick Nyamunungu described the IGP’s visit as a courtesy call on the Omusinga.
Nyamunungu however revealed that the Acting Prime Minister Ivan Syauswa has summoned a cabinet meeting this morning but quickly added, it is aimed at discussing the journey to Bundibugyo
