Retired Air Force Pilot, Col Chris Mudoola, has threatened to take the Busoga Kingdom and members of the Busoga Royal Chiefs’ Council to court for continued transaction of business with his rival for the Kigulu Chieftaincy seat, Prince Patrick Izimba Gologolo.
Col Mudoola describes Prince Gologolo, one of the 11 chiefs that participated in the August 23 election of Prince William Gabula IV the fourth Kyabazinga of Busoga, as an impostor.
Addressing the media in Jinja on Tuesday, Col Mudoola said the High Court in Jinja had in 2004 issued an order restraining Prince Gologolo from passing off as the Ngobi of Kigulu, a development that was made clear to Prince Gologolo and all Busoga Kingdom officials.
He further revealed that members of the royal family from Kigulu had sacked Prince Gologolo in 2012 and enthroned him (Mudoola) as the Ngobi of Kigulu on May 3, 2013, a development he claimed kingdom officials had been made privy of, but continued to deal with Prince Gologolo. This, he said, is unacceptable.
“When I secured a court injunction on Gologolo I took it to the kingdom and when rituals were performed on me as the rightful chief of Kigulu in May 2013, I took a letter to the kingdom’s clerk to Council, but they keep on issuing invitations to Prince Gologolo for functions. I will take them to court if they don’t stop,” he said.
Col Mudoola however hastened to add that he has no objection to the election of Prince Nadiope Gabula, adding that he would have also elected him if he had attended the chiefs’ meeting of August 23.
Responding to Col Mudoola’s comments on Wednesday, Prince Gologolo, said his rival is at liberty to say whatever he wishes.
“This is a free country. He (Col Mudoola) is free to say whatever he feels like, but Kigulu is mine and he knows it,” he said.
