THE Judicial Commission of Inquiry into the burning of the Kasubi Tombs on Tuesday toured the site.

The hearing of the case starts on December 1 at Uganda Manufacturers Conference Centre in Lugogo in Kampala.

Damiano Lubega, the Buganda representative on the commission, said over 80 people have recorded statements.

Justice George Steven Engwau, the chairman of the commission, said the reason for the tour was to familiarise with the site.

“We must find out the causes of the fire, capacity of the security at the time of the incident and also deal with other accidental factors at the time of the incident,” he said.

Engwau said the commission would also institute a special hearing at the site for the old people who cannot move to the main venue.

He said they would cater for the witnesses in all ways during the process.

Engwau said after gathering all the evidence, the commission would compile a final report.

Princess Gertrude Tebutagwabwe, the new caretaker of the tombs, asked the commission to speed up the inquiries to enable construction to take place.

The inquiries are expected to end in February.

The tombs, which are a UNESCO world heritage site, were destroyed by fire in March.

The tombs are a burial site for Buganda kings.
