LUWEERO assistant RDC Caleb Tukaikiriza has complained that herdsmen in the district, have refused to abandon a primitive Kinyankole/Kiga culture where young girls are grabbed from homes and forcefully married to men
Tukaikiriza said the practice was mostly common in Ngoma and Kinyogoga sub-counties in Nakaseke county. The area is predominantly inhabited by Banyankore and Banyarwanda herdsmen.
â€œIt is primitive. I have tried to discourage it but they still do it,â€ Tukairiza said this recently. He threatened to arrest the culprits.
