Bugungu Cultural Revival Association has threatened to petition court should Bunyoro Kitara kingdom continue to stop them from relishing their constitutional right of forming a cultural institution.

This comes days after police deployed heavily during the swearing in of Bugungu Cultural Revival Association executive on Saturday at Buliisa community hall.

Police officers led by the ASP Denis Mangeni, the OC CID at Buliisa police station said they were deployed to stop the meeting.

Reliable sources have told Earthfinds that the order to stop the meeting was issued by the Albertine Regional Police Commander SSP Obura Deo with request from Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom.

But, Fred Lukumu, the deputy association chairperson says they are mandated by law to form a cultural institution which they are ready to form at any cost. Lukumu who is the former Buliisa LCV chairperson adds that they are ready to petition court should Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom continue interfering with their activities.

The Bugungu Cultural Revival Association chairperson Norman Lukumu says their aim is to revive the Bagungu culture and unite all people in Buliisa divided by politics.

Lukumu who is the former Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom Prime Minister has urged security forces to avoid being used by individuals who have personal interests.

When contacted, Robert Rukahemura Akiiki omukonga, the personal assistant to the Prime Minister of Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom Andrew Byakutaga says the association has never written to the kingdom about their secession plans.
