Rwenzururu King Charles Wesley Mumbere has been charged with murder in a Jinja court and remanded until December 13 this year when he will appear in court for further mention.

King Numbers was arrested on Sunday during a joint force raid on his Bihikira Royal Palace in Kasese town which left at least 46 of his guards killed.

He was then airlifted to Nalufenya Police station in Jinja where he has been in detention since.

His arrest and charges follows fresh Rwenzori clashes that have left more than 100 people dead and scores injured.

Government has blamed the fresh clashes on militias who reportedly want the Bakonzo tribe to secede from Uganda and form an independent State, Yiira Republic.

I’m March this year, Mumbere¬† denied any plans for his subjects or kingdom to secede saying those were rumors propagated by the enemies of his kingdom.
