Opposition Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] says it is now considering dragging the Uganda police to court for killing civilians in Kasese over the weekend.
Police and the army shot and killed six people accusing them of attacking security forces.
Now FDC leaders in Kasese led by the Local Council V chair-elect Geoffrey Biroro Sibendire have vowed to sue individual security officers over Kasese killings.
Major Ronald Kakurungu, the second division army spokesperson, says because of those incidents, the army is investigating and apprehending the culprits.
But Sibendire says what the police has failed to explain is why there was a deployment in a peaceful area.
In a statement, Rwenzururu Kingdom denied links to a militia that allegedly launched Kasese attacks, according to IGP Kale Kayihura.
The Kingdom spokesperson told media in Kasese town that Kayihura’s findings “were half baked”.
The Kingdom said elections took place peacefully in many places, Kasenyi included wondering whether the violence happened in Kasenyi.
He said four royal guards were shot dead from their homes.
IGP Kayihura on the other hand contends that UPDF/police officers fired in self-defence.
