Leadership wrangles have rocked Bagwere Cultural Institution.

Bishop Wayabire, who currently heads the institution, emerged in 2013 as a splin­ter group from the Mub­bala group and in December, a section of clan and spiritual leaders installed Prince Paul Patrick Pangoli Ndobooli Lyada as their leader. 

On Saturday, the Balangila who are also opposed to the leadership of Bishop Chrysostom Weyabire as the Ikumbania {King} of the Bagwere crowned Nelson Kamba Mulaabi as a Parallel King of the Bagwere. The coronation ceremony took place at Gadumire Primary School in Budaka Sub County. 

 

An emergency security meeting was convened on Saturday afternoon at the Budaka Resident District Commissioner’s office in Budaka town council following the dissatisfaction from the subjects and the leaders of the Ikumbania opposing to the coronation of the Balangira leader.

The meeting was attended by Bishop Weyabire, his prime ministers and other institutions leaders, the Deputy Regional Police Commander Alex Muhumuza, Martin Olochi, the Resident District Commissioner, the Representatives of the Balangila Clan, and the District Internal Security Officer among others. 

During the meeting, the Balangila were accused of demeaning King Weyabile who said that he was gazetted and recognized by the government.

Eric Kasolo, the Prime Minister of the Obwa Ikumbania Bwa Bwgere said that they have held several meetings to sort out their differences in vain. 

However, the Balangila Clan Prime Minster denied installing a King. Prince Muhammad Ngobi Nzongi explained that they were installing their clan leader.

Martin Olochi, the RDC Budaka asked the two factions to con­tinue with the rec­on­cil­I­a­tion process and report back to him after 30 days. 

//Cue in: “For me here… 

Cue out:…who is gazetted”//  

Samuel Mulomi, the Budaka District LCV chairperson warned all the warring factions against inciting violence among their subjects.
