Tooro Kingdom palace is reported to have been invaded by strange people, ed according to the Monarchy’s Amacumu ritual performers.


The unknown people this groups claims, cheap invaded the palace while King Oyo is way at his residence in Kampala.

According to Nyaika Milton Kabagambe, head of the cultural Amacumu Chapter Tooro Kingdom, strange people invaded the kingdom and are living in Omukama’s palace.

“These unknown people living in the palace are likely to cause problems to our Kingdom. A palace is a royal place for rituals and no one is supported to stay there,” Nyaika said.

He said, “The cultural rituals are no longer performed because the king is away and women who include the Queen Mother and deputy Premier Harriet Nyakake are always in the palace. Women are not supposed to go in the palace unless on the king’s invitation”.

Nyaika made this revelation to the press during the Executive meeting of Amacumu N’ebitara (spears&swords) held in their office at Mucwa Kingdom chambers in Fort Portal town.

He said that according to Tooro Kingdom culture, there are clans that are not supposed to step in the palace and that the presence of Premier Harriet Nyakake and Queen mother Best Kemigisa in the palace has affected kingdom activities.

Nyaika called on the people of Tooro to join them in the struggle to remove the “strange people” from the palace and also pull King Oyo back from Kampala where he currently resides.

Bob Mugume, the spokesperson for Amacumu said they were giving a two weeks ultimatum to King Oyo to return to his kingdom or they would camp at the palace for 9 days protesting his overstay in Kampala.

He said during the camping time, they would perform rituals and blow trumpets, something that has cultural implications to the Kingdom.

Edward Kasaija the chairman of Amacuumu said they would remain focused on development of Tooro kingdom. He also refuted allegations that they were a radical group formed to fight government and kingdom.

Last week, a section of Amacumu held a press conference at Fort View Hotel and condemned the overstaying of King Oyo in Kampala saying that this has greatly affected the development of the kingdom.
