Self-proclaimed Ankole King chased by his family
The family of the self-proclaimed king, Umar Rubambansi Ntare VI 6th, has disowned and chased him from Itaba, in Rwampara Mbarara district.
The decision follows an incident on 31st december, almost two weeks ago, in which Rubambansi and yet to be known group of men attacked the family, injured his father, Kaweesa Edrisa, and attempted to kill his brother, sisters and other members of the family.
Last week, the Rwizi region police spokesperson, Samson Kasasira told Croozefm that Kaweesa Idrisa, together with other unknown people attacked Rubambansi and assaulted him, leading to his subsequent admission at Mayanja Memorial hospital in Mbarara.
However, speaking to a press conference at their Itaba home yesterday, Kaweesi refuted the claims, saying they were attacked by Rubambansi and his group, adding that they have chased him and never step a foot in Itaba again since he doesn’t own it.
