The Katikiro of Buganda has today met with Police leadership to discuss issues related to the brutality against the kingdom’s and religious leaders in Mityana on Saturday last week.
Owekitiibwa Charles Peter Mayiga met with a team of senior police chiefs led by Assistant IGP Asan Kasingye at the Katikiro’s office in Bulange, Mengo.
The team of officers did brief the Katikiro on what ensued over the weekend in Mugulu, Ssingo during the thanksgiving ceremony of Omutaka Gajule Kayira Kasibante, the head of the Mbogo clan.
In a clan hosted by Bishop Emeritus John Baptist Kaggwa, police dispersed the congregation with tear gas, an act which was heavily criticized by Buganda’s leadership. Some cultural leaders, under Nkobazambogo, marched to Bulange petitioning the Katikiro to request an official apology from the Police.
IGP Ochola has since issued an official apology to the kingdom, the Mbogo Clan, and the attendees that day, and in today’s meeting, AIGP continued to convey the Police’s apologies to the Katikiro.
“The Katikkiro was more appreciative, and the team promised stronger cooperation between the Buganda Kingdom and the Uganda Police Force,” read a statement from the Police.
The Katikiro went ahead to ask for disciplinary measures to be taken on the commanding officer who led the interruption of the Mbogo clan meeting.
