SIR â€”Prince John Barigye is calling for the revival of Ankole culture through the reinstatement of the kingdom. I suggest it is time for the people of Ankole through the Ankole Cultural Trust to continue to lobby the authority that suspended Obugabe to revise the reasons why it was removed and if
President Museveni is one leader in Africa who respects culture and believes in it tremendously. The Obugabe posed serious political challenges in Ankole, or so it seems. Good leaders dislike disunity.
The president decided that Ankole should not be granted Obugabe because the conflicts between Bairu and Bahima had their roots in it. The Bairu allege that Obugabe did not benefit them and that it only subjected them to abuse by the Bahima. People of my age have no good knowledge on this issue but we trust the elders to tell us honestly what happened.
For political harmony, it does appear that the absence of Obugabe has brought the Bairu and Bahima together and therefore one can argue that we have understood and appreciated the problem and are now ready to solve it if we come together in order to regain and protect our cultural heritage.
