THE Government has rejected demands by the Banyoro in Masindi and Hoima districts to lift the ban on the deportation of illegal Congolese immigrants in the region.
The Minister for internal Affairs, also the chairman of the national security committee, Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda, said, â€œThe exercise remains suspended until the Government finds a clear and sustainable position on how to handle this problem.â€
Rugunda was addressing Hoima
residents at Rukurato Hall in Hoima Town, following a two-day fact-finding mission in the two districts.
Rugunda was accompanied to Bunyoro by the Inspector General of Police, Major General Katumba Wamala and the secretary of the national security committee, Mugizi.
The Third Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Service, Henry Kajura, the Hoima district chairman George Tinkamanyire Bagonza and Woman MP Beatrice Byenkya attended the Hoima meeting.
The Government last month suspended the registration of Congolese in Bunyoro.
Rugunda said he was directed by the President to study the problem so that a lasting solution is found.
