THE National Political Commissar, Dr. Crispus Kiyonga, has dismissed allegations that President Museveni will soon grant the Bakonzo/Bamba a kingdom and install Charles Wesley Mumbere as king.

The Kasese town-based Messiah Radio had earlier quoted Kasese woman MP Loice Bwambale as saying Kasese MPs had met the President who reportedly agreed to go to Kasese and announce his support for the Bakonzo Kingdom.

Bwambale reportedly said the issue of the kingdom, locally known as ‘Obusinga,’ was no longer a problem, adding that those opposed to it should go to the courts of law.

But Kiyonga, talking to The New Vision and Messiah Radio reporters recently, said, “The president has repeatedly made it clear that the matter, being contentious, can only be resolved by an Act of Parliament.”

Kiyonga, who is also the Bukonzo West Member of Parliament, said no such Act had been passed.

“There was therefore no way the President could have promised that he would soon officiate at the inauguration of the said kingdom,” he said.

“If it is true that Bwambale announced that the President would soon grant the kingdom, she owes an apology to the President, the people of Kasese and all Ugandans for telling lies,” Kiyonga said.

Following Bwambale’s announcement, supporters of the monarchy were heard saying if Museveni sought a third term as President, they would vote for him.
But Kiyonga said even if Museveni wanted a third term, he should not get it on lies. He advised his constituents to reject people telling lies.
