Mr Museveni, who was dressed in military attire, said: “I am going to deploy security in all areas to ensure that peace prevails in the area. Criminals who are hiding in Rwenzori region intending to cause insecurity in the region will be dealt with.”

He blamed cultural, political and religious leaders for not doing enough to end tribal clashes in the Rwenzori sub-region.
