The Banyabindi community, a minority ethnic group in Kasese has vowed to petition president Yoweri Museveni over the government recognition of the Rwenzururu Kingdom.
Francis Kamuhanda, the spokesman of the Banyabindi Cultural Trust says that government is committing a very serious mistake by recognizing Rwenzururu Kingdom.
The statement by Kamuhanda comes only a few days after government officially recognized the Rwenzururu Kingdom.
According to Kamuhanda, president Museveni recognized the Rwenzururu Kingdom because he was deceived that all ethnic groups in Kasese had reconciled, which is false.
Kamuhanda says that members of the Banyabindi Community are still waiting for the for the formation of the National Truth and Reconciliation committee as recommended by the 2005 Kajura commission on the Obusinga, to address atrocities committed against their community by the Rwenzururu.
According to Kamuhanda, by accepting the demands of the Bakonzo to recognize their kingdom it is evident that government only listens to the demands of the majority.
The Banyabindi are opposed to the Obusinga Bwa Rwenzururu and the coronation of Wesley Mumbere accusing him and his subjects of displacing them from their ancestral homeland in the 1960 Rwenzururu wars.
The Banyabindi Community living in Kasese has called off a meeting with Rwenzururu Cultural leader, Charles Wesley Mumbere Iremangoma saying it's an abomination to meet him.
Elders of the Banyabindi community shunned on May 13, 2009, ignored invitation to attend another meeting that was organized by Yolamu Mulima, the Rwenzruru Kingdom secretary for moblisation.
The Banyabindi Community claims that they have a distinct language and culture completely different from that of those who believe in Rwenzuru kingdom.
Banyabindi believe they belong to the Toro kingdom but not Rwenzururu Kingdom.
Banyabindi becomes the second tribe in Kasese after the Basongora, to denounce the Rwenzuru Kingdom.
