Rwenzuru king speaks out on the Rwenzori clashes

A 70 year old woman in Kamuli district is currently nursing serious wounds after she allegedly set herself ablaze on claims that she wanted to join her late husband who died ten years ago.
Ms Jane Takwemazayo, a resident of Busibiria LC1 Kamuli district allegedly gathered old jerry cans, beddings, her clothes on Tuesday and set them on fire before jumping into it. However, she was rescued by her neighbours.

Ms Takwemazayo’s son, Lawrence Isanga said his mother has been battling a mental illness since the death of her husband in a house fire ten years ago.

Mr Isanga further explained his mother had last week disappeared and feared dead, only to be found in Kaliro district and she was sent back home.
“My mother has for some time now been haunted by the clan and our father’s spirits. It is not yet a week since we returned her from Kaliro where she had disappeared from,” Mr Isanga said, adding that she has refused to go to the hospital preferring local herbs treatment.
