By Serestino Tusingwire
The incarcerated King of Rwenzururu Kingdom, Omusinga Charles Wesley Mumbere is on verge of facing treason charges after being connected to the ongoing massacre in Rwenzori sub-region.
Mumbere was on Sunday arrested from his Kingdom, Rwenzururu and lifted in a police helicopter to a place yet to be known in Kampala.
According to police spokesperson, Andrew Felix Kaweesi, Mumbere will be charged with treason because he led his self built militia to fight national security.
“Mumbere is solely to be blamed for what happened in Kasese because of his method of approach. He built this militia who attacked a UPDF senior officer with an improvised explosive.” Kaweesi said while addressing journalists on Monday at police head offices in Naguru.
Kaweesi added that police is carrying out investigations and if it is found out that he was the mastermind for the massacre, he will be charged with treason.
It is reported that since Saturday, over 60 people have been killed and many others injured.
However, Kaweesi said the situation in Kasese is very calm, life is normal and people are back to their businesses
