Rwenzururu queen in Kasese peace drive


Rwenzururu Kingdom Queen, Nyabaghole Agnes Ithungu, is in Kasese district on a peace campaign traversing various parts of the district.

She will as well have a rally in Kasese town to pass a message of peace and reconciliation on behalf of her husband, Charles Wesley Mumbere.

After nearly four years without stepping in Kasese town, Ithungu made it to the kingdom amidst jubilation by thousands of royal subjects and tight security on Wednesday.

This is the first time the queen is allowed back to the district following November 26, 2016 when security forces attacked the Buhikira royal palace after the king allegedly refused to disband over 1000 militia guards.

Nyaboghole Ithungu last went to Kasese on August 15, 2018 when she lost her.
