The state minister for land survives lynching

Youths in the Busoga Bulaale Pressure Group, the youth group that supports the Kyabazinga of Busonga William Gabula Nadiope IV has engaged in a fight with the supporters of the Prince Edward Columbus Wambuzi and the fight ended in bloodsheds.

This fight was still in Nakabago district in Jinja and some left wounded and other rushed to the hospital.

This fighting came after the State Minister for Lands, Persis Namuganza and a spokes person of the Prince Edward Columbus Wambuzi, gave a speech while commissioning a bore hole in Ivukula when she accused the speaker of parliament Ms Rebecca Kadaga of having allegedly hatched a plot to kill her and urged people of Bukono Constituency whom she represents in Parliament, to hurl stones at the speaker and the Kyabazinga if they ever set foot in her constituency.

This annoyed the Basonga youths and sparked off the fight using the machetes, stones and sticks, the battle which lasted several minutes, were stopped by police who also came to the Minister’s rescue who was still in the palace with Prince Wambuzi.

The youth warned the minister to not access the Busoga regain again unless she has apologizes publically or in writing for what she said.
