Rift between Tooro Kingdom and Kabarole district local gov’t deepens
Rwabuhinga rubbishes the allegation insisting, “The utterances made by Kaliba were false and implied that the district leadership was rebelling against the Kingdom. There was no resolution passed to ban the kingdom anthem”. “The district is ready to negotiate the matter amicably with the Kingdom authorities to ensure that we co-exist peacefully and work together for development of the Kingdom.”
When contacted, Premier Kaliba revealed that what he said stands.
He accused the district for trying to grab the Kingdom’s property. He also repeated his earlier stand that there wasn’t any agreement signed between the Kingdom and district to remit funds to the district.
The unsteady relationship between the Kingdom and the local government dates way back to 2009, when Tooro kingdom evicted the leadership of Kabarole district local government due to outstanding rental arrears amounting to more than Shs 12m.
