Members of Parliament from Kasese district have given President Yoweri Museveni conditions to hold talks regarding the clashes that led to the arrest of Rwenzururu king, Charles Wesley Mumbere.
Key among them is for Omusinga Mumbere, currently in Luzira Prisons on treason, murder, attempted murder and terrorism charges, to head the talks.
During the meeting between President Museveni and MPs at his farm in Kisozi in Gomba district, the legislators also demanded for the Omusinga’s unconditional release, as well as those of more than 150 royal guards also on remand in Luzira prison.
During a press briefing at Parliament yesterday, Kasese Municipality MP, Robert Centenary said they also agreed that arbitrary arrests of individuals in Kasese district by security agencies cease immediately.
The meeting was attended by Bukedea Woman MP, Anita Among, whom the MP says was invited by the President, as well as South Rwenzori Diocese Bishop, Rt. Reverend Jackson Nzerebende.

On Wednesday, Jinja Magistrates Court adjourned the hearing of Mumbere’s case to January 12, 2017.
Mumbere, together with the Kingdom’s Prime Minister Johnson Thembo and more than 150 royal guards will hear whether they will be committed to High court which has jurisdiction over treason and other capital offences.
Bail hearing for the Omusinga has been scheduled for January 9.
