Kasese Paralyzed As Freed Rwenzururu Royal Guards Return Home

Business came to a standstill in Kasese town for the better part of Thursday as thousands of people thronged Booma Grounds in Kasese Municipality. This was to welcome the freed Rwenzururu royal guards. The two UPDF buses transporting the royal guards led by Capt. Derrick Mwesige Ayebale entered the central business district around 8:45am. This was amidst cheers and jubilations from the awaiting relatives, Rwenzururu Kingdom loyalists, and other town dwellers.

Boda boda riders cycled through the town as the cultural dancers lined up the road as the buses drove towards the RDC’s office. Some relatives and friends shed tears while others craved to hold hands as they spotted their relatives in the UPDF buses.

It took close to an hour for the excited residents to be cleared to allow the buses to drive to Booma grounds where hundreds of others were waiting. Here all manners of celebrations were showcased. Others beat the minimal security present to hug their loved ones who had been led to the pavilion section.

At 10:00 am, Kasese Resident District Commissioner Lt. Joe Walusimbi recieved the 62 freed royal guards. In turn, he delivered them to the joyous prime minister and relatives.

Saadi Bwambale who came from Maliba Sub-County to welcome the group could not hide his excitement. He also called this day historical in the lives of the Kasese people. Further, he argued that many had lost hope that one day their people would be free. He also asked the group to now focus on working for their families.

Elder Kule Yosoni hailed President, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, and the government for freeing their children. He also appealed to the kingdom loyalists to forgive anyone for whatever mistakes that happened in 2016 and now focus on building peace.

The Kasese RDC Lt. Joe Walusimbi asked the freed persons not to be misled into rebellious acts. They rather utilize their time to tap into government programs. He also asked the local community not to be misled by self-seekers who are claiming to have been behind the negotiations to have the Mumbere and his royal guards freed.
