Tooro premier, bishop disagree over King oyo

KABAROLE. Tooro Kingdom prime minister Stephen Kaliba has disagreed with the Anglican Bishop of Rwenzori Diocese Reuben Kisembo Amooti over calls for King Oyo Nyimba to reconcile with Prince David Kijanangoma.
During celebrations to mark King Oyo’s 23rd birthday at his Fort Portal Palace last Saturday, Bishop Kisembo aised Tooro Kingdom officials and King Oyo to call for a reconciliation meeting with Prince Kijanangoma and his camp to address pending issues that have divided the subjects.
But in his response at the same function, Mr Kaliba ruled out any reconciliation plans with Prince Kijanangoma.
“Impersonation is not allowed according to the law, therefore King Oyo is there to forgive. I ask those people to drop their mission of ousting King Oyo because the king cannot sit on the table to negotiate with any one,” said Mr Kaliba.
He said while he is being threatened over this stance, he will stand by the truth.
“Therefore my lord Bishop, since I got saved and accepted Jesus as my Lord and savior, I am saying that I will stand on the truth much as I am being threatened” he said.
The official birthday celebrations are to be held today at Kyenjojo District headquarters where the king is expected to announce new chiefs in Mwenge County.
Princess Elizabeth Bagaya, a paternal auntie to King Oyo is reported to have been pleading with Prince Kijanangoma to drop his plan to oust King Oyo.
