Minister Tumukunde Challenges Bunyoro ‘Welcome New Comers’

The Minister for Security Gen. Henry Tumukunde has urged the people of Bunyoro to live harmoniously, price work together in solving their problems and focus on the available economic opportunities rather than fanning tribal sentiments.

Tumukunde was on Thursday addressing media shortly after the security meeting he held in Kagadi Town.

The security meeting involved District security heads (RDCs), clinic police commanders, other security organs, opinion leaders and the business community from the oil rich Albertine Region.

Gen. Tumukunde said the meeting was about ironing out the sprouting friction between different groups occupying Bunyoro region.

The locals have been raising complaints over the months of multitudes of people from outside who are acquiring large chunks of land in the area, ever since oil was discovered there.

Tumukunde said he advised Banyoro to accept changes and focus on development issues in the area.

 The minister said Bunyoro people should embrace the refinery, roads, airport and factories being set up but not pushing one another; citing indigenous Banyoro and the new comers.

The minister further encouraged Banyoro to preserve wetlands and forests since they affect weather changes.

Kagadi RDC Salim Kumakecth says he invited the minister to listen to the people’s opinions and views concerning security and that a lot about security has been presented to the minister from the entire region.
