Museveni Asks Mumbere for Help to ‘Wipe Out’ ADF Rebels

Kasese District | THE BLACK EXAMINER | President Yoweri Museveni has reached out to Charles Wesley Mumbere Irema Ngoma, the cultural leader of Obusinga Bwa Rwenzururu, seeking assistance in countering the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels and ensuring regional stability.

The ADF rebels have been a persistent security threat, recently involved in incidents like the tragic murder of British tourists and a Ugandan tour guide, particularly in Kasese, western Uganda.

In response, President Museveni urges the local community to support security forces by being vigilant and helping identify and eliminate rebel elements in their communities. Speaking at the 57th coronation anniversary of the Rwenzururu cultural leader in Kasese town, Museveni emphasized regional stability’s importance for the country’s development.

He also encouraged the kingdom’s leadership to maintain a positive relationship with the government to address issues like poverty and criminality.

Museveni reaffirmed the government’s respect for the Bakonzo community’s cultural norms and highlighted the significance of the return of kingdoms in Uganda in 1993.

Charles Wesley Mumbere Irema Ngoma, in his address, stressed the importance of embracing government programs like the Parish Development Model (PDM) to improve livelihoods and combat poverty. He outlined the kingdom’s seven-year plans, focusing on reconciliation, unity, socioeconomic transformation, peace-building, and mindset change, calling for commitment from all his subjects to achieve these goals.
