After 48 hours inside the dungeon of Nalufenya Prison, the Obusinga bwa Rwenzururu Charles Wesley Mumbere was appearing infront to Jinja Magistrate Court. Where the presiding judge on orders from above, had decided to put “treason” Charge on the man, who has lost his Royal Guards and his Palace in the matter of the recent weekend. With a bloodshed unleashed by the Special Force Command and Uganda People’s Defence Force.
The Rwenzori Kingdom in Kasese has gotten massive losses; the town of Kasese has seen a siege operation where the Army and Police had all intent of blazing the gates and storm the Palace without any consideration of life or mercy. The ones taken in as humiliated and with force. The king himself will be in costudy and in bracelets until 13th December as the case, which as procedure will be prolonged indefinitely and evidence will come forward in the working case of the Court. It have not produced anything yet other than the culprit, the others is at the Central Police Station of Kasese, the 140 guards who we are lucky not to be killed by the vicious army of the bloodthirsty soldiers.
We can all wonder what kind of message it sends, when eyewitnesses say that the weapons found in the palace are forged and the evidence placed there by the army who stormed the Palace after a brutal battle in Kabarole the day before. We can all question when the AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi saying that the king and his powers had built up and militia. While the first proof was an AK-47 and Pistol. That is less than President Museveni has besides his pillows at one of the Presidential locations across the Republic.
So I don’t trust the army or the Police that works in political and reality for the President, not for the security of the people, they will manufacture stories and make belief of any kind of reasoning and doubt beyond any mere fact to fix the outcome and tarnish the king. They got no other way to clear the air and clean their blood from their hands. Their already disregard for dialogue or touch with reality is what transpired into the bloodbath at the Palace in Kasese.
The one who happens to be in bracelets, Mumbere is the one needing safety by the state; he is the one that is sitting in the cell. The king with no Palace, no servants and no one to address his concern as the state can make anyone a terrorist and anyone can lose their freedom if it benefits the tyrant.
President Museveni has forgotten his people, his constitution and the reasons for his rebellion; if the rebellion was not anything else than an excuse all along for him to overthrow and gain all power. Something it seems by every day counting.
We can just wonder if the souls of Idi Amin and Milton Obote still roams the land and see their successor acts as vicious as they see, the liberator turned tyrant with swift force and with smiles and grins of allies in Libya and America. Now, the Libyan interference is gone, but the exported weaponry and battle training from the U.S. is still happening. These techniques are now used to get-rid of kingdom and their loyal subjects. With a force and authorities we did not think the masters of our day would ever be able to do, and that to their own. The own people, the own subjects and the citizens of its own country with no mercy and justification, therefore a manufactured court to save face for the killings just mere hours ago. Peace.
“Speaking to KFM, the Member of Parliament for Busongora County in Kasese district William Nzoghu said if the UPDF and Police had not attacked the Rwenzururu kingdom offices on Saturday, no one would have been killed” (KFM, 2016)
The Government are now internally working on their strategy to clear the air and clean their hands of the blood. The destruction of the Buhikira Royal Palace at Kasese, together with the arrests of 130 Royal Guards and killing dozens of Royal Guards. Together with the killings of the Police Officers and Soldiers that we’re in the shootout!
The hours of violence and killings, the dismay of Kasese and its kingdom is pivotal to where we are today. Today is the first day after three days of violence in the area, that in Kabarole and in Kasese. Where the Royal Guards has killed and also Security Operations that been instructed by the Major General Kainerugaba Muhoozi, the son of the President has been in charge of the operation. This been done with more thorough force than they did earlier in the year. The killings been systematic, what is hurtful isn’t that the Police are detaining a journalist; that is expected by them as they are internal part of the functioning party lead from the President.
What is demeaning to the situation is that the Special Forces Command is back in the Palace and with more force than earlier in the year. Where they together with Police detained 134 Royal Guards and killed 40 of them, while burning the Palace, detaining the King and Queen of Rwenzururu.
So on the first day of mourning and first day of recollection, as the dust from fires of the houses that is burned to ground. We can question why did this happen and why now? Why does the SFC under command of Maj. Gen. Muhoozi get allowed with order to “shoot to kill” civilians, Royal Guards and seal of a town in the midst of peace-time, while also undress servants of king and put them on display in the compound of the ruined palace. Why?
“Just seen the bodies of the royal guards killed at the palace loaded on one vehicle” – journalist Thembo Kahungu.
And why can they after 48 hours shoot in the air when the families of the all the fallen, the deceased and the affected by the assault of the Monarchy are not allowed to visit their dead and give them a burial. While the Uganda Police Force are planning their burials for the fallen Police Officers; the discontent and the disregard for the people of Kasese is clear and message is sent when this messages are spread.
What even hurts more when the serious Media Channel and International Broadcast blasts away a story of terrorist/separatist of the fictions state of Yiira, that Al-Jazeera sounds more like the ignorant Ofwono Opondo than a serious broadcaster and shows their sorry state of intelligence when that is what they report after the vicious and malicious attempts of cover-up from the government who went in with artillery, heavy machinery, to a Palace they emptied of weapons in April 2016, when the King himself after dialogue with the NRM gave the guns after the last skirmish. Oh, gee how these details get forgotten fast in the wind of brutal murders that occurred this weekend and we’re sanctioned from the man who we’re busy packing his yellow shirts and travelling to South Africa.
There are reports up to a total of 400 died during the weekend clashes between government security operatives towards the locals who either we’re connected with the kingdom or just by-passers. This numbers cannot be verified at this moment as there are so many uncertainties and also that the Security Operatives has done whatever they could to put the world in the shadow of their business this weekend. That is because they know they got something to hide, if it was legal and legit it would be an open bazaar, instead it’s a sealed of town where scores of dead bodies lying there all around the compound of the Palace.
“If this regime leader can treat a leader of over a million people like this, what will happen to the common man?” – Gen. Mugisha Muntu
While we are questioning the aftermath of this senseless skirmish of Maj. Brig. Muhoozi and his forces together with Police Force, the King himself is detained in the Nalufenya Prison in Jinja. The media in the area has gotten a gag-order because the intelligence and truth they don’t want out. As the Republic is not supposed to know what kind of activity that has been done on order by the President who left the building while it was being torn down and burned, together with the merciless killing.
And after the fact of the pictures of these guards, the burning of the palace as they are trying to hide the victims and ransacking of the it; together with the knowledge of the Royal Guards put into an Army Van and driven to the Kasese Hospital Mortuary where the families of the deceased is not allowed in. Proves that the SFC under Maj. Brig. Muhoozi has something untold as they rushed and attacked the kingdom with full force and fierce and merciless this time around. Because the Army has already killed fellow Royal Guards during the year, in Kasese and in the villages. So it shows that the Army and Central Government under President Museveni have problems with this practice of the Rwenzururu Kingdom. Instead of dialogue Museveni has as always during his long career and life, have faith in the gun over reason. Therefore he orders to kill and shoot the ones who happen to be Palace this weekend. Peace.

“Amama Mbabazi addresses the media and talks about the cases of alleged police raid on his lawyers’ offices in which materials and evidence linked to the election petition were stolen. Mbabazi also briefly addresses reported cases that some of his petition witnesses have been arrested or are being harassed by police” (NTV Uganda, 2016).
