The prime minister of the Rwenzeruru kingdom Noah Nzaghale and the environment minister Elisha Mberemu have been arrested.

Security operatives picked the duo Thursday morning and are being detained at Kasese Police Station.

This comes after more suspects were arrested in connection to the recent tribal clashes in Ntoroko, Bundibugyo and Kasese that left over 70 dead.
