The Rwenzururu Kingdom has renewed demand for the creation of a ministry in government that will specifically help resolve issues that have affected the Rwenzori sub- region.
The Rwenzori sub region, specifically Kasese and Bundibugyo, has suffered violence for more than 100 years.
Currently, there’s a ministry for Luwero-Rwenzori under the office of the prime minister.
But Joseph Kule Muranga, the Kingdoms premier says a separate ministry would help resolve the violence in the Rwenzori and subsequently spur socio-economic development in the area.Muranga on Ministry…..
He made the remarks yesterday during a youth leaders’ meeting convened by Creations Forum Africa at TJ Global Hotel in Kasese town.
But Johnication Muhindo, the Executive Director at Creations Forum Africa says there’s need for government to design a special program to address the challenges affecting the Rwenzori since the area has grappled with violence for long.
Muhindo says a peace, recovery and development plan specifically designed for the region would also go a long way in empowering the young people to engage in ventures that would spur development in the area. END.
