THE Banyankore cultural Foundation (BCF) has rejected a meeting of clan heads called by Nkore Cultural Trust patron John Barigye.
In a May 15 letter, the foundation said Barigye did not have authority to convene a clan heads meeting.
â€œIt should be noted that Mr. John Barigye has no historical, cultural, political or legal authority over clans and clan institutions among Banyankore.
â€œIt should further be noted that traditionally, Banyankore have no clan leaders because their clan structures were, and still are fluid and dispersed,â€ the letter reads.
Invitation letters signed by William Katatumba on April 9 were dispatched to various people inviting them to Barigyeâ€™s home for a meeting.
But Bishop Paul Bakyenga said yesterday, â€œThose people have misunderstood what we are doing.â€
