Must read

Rwenzururu Prime Minister, Johnson Thembo Kitsumbire has been arrested by police.

Mr. Kitsumbire was picked from his home in Kasese Municipality and sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, say he is currently being questioned over his role in the collection of signatures to petition the International Criminal Court (ICC).

“Several Kasese leaders including MPs are currently involved in an exercise to gather signatures in a bid to petition the ICC over the Kasese clashes; this could be the reason for his arrest,” the sources said, without giving details.

Just a week, the leaders met with the ICC Registrar who was in the country to follow-up on the indicted Lord Resistance Army commander Dominic Ongwen who is currently facing charges of crimes against humanity

However, police remains tight-lipped on the reason why he was arrested, but have promised to address a presser later.

Meanwhile, sources say Mr. Kitsumbire is the second in hierarchy in the Rwenzururu kingdom and is the current caretaker of the kingdom affairs.

Police and other security agencies have arrested and charged152 people in relation to the killings in kasese.

Over 100 people died in the violence when the army and police attacked the King Mumbere’s palace.
