President Museveni at the close of last year offered Tooro Prince David Kijanangoma a job as a reward for not fighting Tooro King Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru IV.
“I’m happy you stopped fighting King Oyo Nyimba,” Museveni wrote in a letter dated November 11, 2019.
“By copy of this letter, I direct the minister of Foreign Affairs to give you a job in the Foreign Service if you have the qualifications.”
He added: “If not, I should be advised to support you so that you buy land for you and you farm.”
Museveni’s letter to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was in response to an earlier letter dated June 29, 2019 in which Prince Kijanangoma was appealed to the President for a job and upkeep.
He also directed State House to start paying him Shs4m as a monthly allowance, clear his debts and rent a house for a year until he gets a job.
In 2013, Prince Kijanangoma turned Tooro kingdom upside down when he rose up against King Oyo for allegedly abdicating his throne to stay in Kampala and his alleged failure to stop his mother, Best Kemigisa, from allegedly meddling in the kingdom administration.
He was arrested several times and charged for, among others, trespass in one of the king’s palaces at Rwengoma.
