Today the day the report of the Peace-Talks between the King of the Rwenzuzuru Kingdom Charles Wesley Mumbere and the NRM Eastern Captian Mike Mukula had discussions and talked about necessary things to gain peace in Rwenzori and Rwenzori sub-region; Because the continued violence have not settled down and came up after a flawed local councilor III elections. As the Police and Army have targeted the Royal Guards men of the kingdom; as well as other people have lost their lives in it.
“There is neither war nor an emergency in the area to warrant continued heavy deployment of such security forces in the area.” The Rwenzururu king, Charles Wesley Mumbere, has told government to withdraw the extra security forces deployed”, (247Loaded, 03.04.2016).

Uganda Police Force – Press Release on the matter:
Please note that the Uganda Police force and the UPDF have intensified security at the Royal Palace of Obusinga Bwa Rwenzururu. This afternoon as the UPF intelligence officers trailed a suspect believed to possess the UPF gun that was taken from a Police officer after he had been killed during an attack on Kidondo P.P last month, there was an exchange of fire within in the kingdom when some attackers attempted to disarm a soldier attached to the kingdom. The UPF is in esting this matter and so far, six people are confirmed dead. Details will be availed later. The situation is under control now as the leaders and the Police follow up on this matter.
ACP Namaye Polly
3rd April 2016.
So the violence continues and seemingly the government security organizations are behind it, as the eye-witnesses are clear on the matter. The UPF is trying to put the blame on somebody else; as they are under the paygrade for the Flying Squad and the orders above controls ACP Polly Namaye tries to deflect it and then excuse for the controlling security arrangements as the Government with their Army and Police have persecuted and killed several Rwenzururu Kingdom Royal Guards in the recent month. This here seems like the plot from the Government has come to the level of actually killing them directly at the Royal Palace in Kasese; instead of taking them down in sub-counties and districts in Rwenzori Sub-Region.
And that is as good intelligence and assessment as the Police and Authorities giving for the moment. I can assure you sooner or later Polly Namaye or CP Fred Enaga will tell it is militia or criminal actions, even if it was the Special Force Command or th Flying Squad! Who started the violence and created the killing around the Royal Palace.
Here is the UPF Statement from CP Fred Enaga:
“Today, Sunday, April 03, 2016, at around 1430 pm, a team from the Police Flying Squad that is actively involved in hunting down suspects behind the attacks on Kidodo Police Post, killing a police officer and stealing a gun, while on routine patrol and surveillance at Katadooba village, located 1 km away from the Rwenzururu Kingdom Palace, sighted Kule Julius, the alleged Commander of the attackers on the Police Post, while in possession of the suspected stolen gun. The suspect upon sighting them escaped and returned to the palace with six other members of the traditional Royal Guards” (…)”The police team while returning to the station in Kasese town, fell into an ambush of another group of suspected traditional royal guards, but managed to force their way through up to the police station. A few moments later, several gunshots were heard from the palace where it was later established to be an attack by the traditional against the UPDF Royal guards deployed at the palace, and whom they attempted to disarm in vain after he fought his way out of the palace with his gun” (…)“The highly charged and violent traditional royal guards tried to pursue him in vain, and in the process met two other UPDF Royal guards deployed at the palace, being transported back to the palace on a motorcycle locally known as “bodaboda”. They instantly shot the motorcycle rider dead, and hacked the two UPDF officers to death” (…)”Both the police and military responded to the area and effectively secured it including the perimeter to the palace. They thereafter rescued the UPDF Royal guard that had escaped from the palace and transported the three bodies of the deceased persons to Kilembe Hospital mortuary for further post mortem analysis as inquiries to establish the motive behind the attacks continue” (…)”The situation has been brought under control with no other incidents of violence. More details will be released progressively” (Fred Enaga, 03.04.2016).
As this statement proves is that this counter all of the eyewitnesses and their stories to the world. That is because the Uganda Police Force trying to clean the evidence and violence created by the Special Force Command ak Flying Squad. This because the King upset Brig. Muhoozi Kainerugaba. Can look like that now, they have the motive, not the Royal Guards who shall protect the king; not create violence or war. That is something the UPDF and Special Force Command is more capable of and can’t deny.
Seems like the Uganda People’s Defense Force – Flying Squad does not like to ordered or take responsibility for the created tension and killings in Kasese, Rwenzori Sub-Regions, as the Army and Police is in charge of most of it. Then the Special Force Command happens to be under Brig Muhoozi Kainerugaba only takes orders from the Man with the Hat, President Museveni his father. The Flying Squad takes with erupts actions and kills to prove their point. That is why the army killed even more people to prove their valid point.
So the Rwenzururu King Charles Wesley Mumbere does not get to order people away and therefore has to suffer,as Brigadier Muhoozi Kainerugaba gets away with search and destroy in the kingdom, because he is son of Mzee. Peace.
