On Saturday, Kingdom officials led by Rt. Hon Appolo John Rwamparo, the Kingdom Second Deputy Prime Minister and Minister BKK PROTESTS ENCROACHMENT ON ROYAL SITE

Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom has asked authorities in Kibaale district to protect its cultural sites from being encroached on.

On Saturday, Kingdom officials led by Rt. Hon Apollo John Rwamparo, the Kingdom Second Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism visited the Royal burial ground of Omukama Nyabongo I Rulemu who was the 6th King in the Babiito dynasty.

Omukama Rulemu ruled Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom around 1580s.

 His burial ground is located in Kigarama village, Kaisekenkere Parish, Matale Subcounty in Kibaale district.

Before visiting the Royal grounds, Rt. Hon Rwamparo met senior Police officers and held a telephone conversation with the Kibaale Resident District Commissioner Mrs Mbabazi Deborah.

The Kingdom complained that one family had cut down the trees which the Kingdom planted on the cultural site and they were clearing the site for cultivation and construction.

Rt. Hon Rwamparo asked security officials to prevent the destruction of the cultural sites since they are a treasure in the history and culture of the Banyoro.

He said the presence of Royal burial grounds in Buyaga and Bugangaizi buttressed Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom’s demand for the two counties to be returned to Bunyoro after they were annexed to Buganda by the British.

Much as the RDC directed Police stop destruction of the site, the destruction has continued.
