Police has stopped a demonstration to protest the enthronement of Edward Columbus Wambuzi, as Kyabazinga of Busoga.
A section of people in Busoga had planned protests in Bugembe this morning, to denounce Columbus Wambuzi for defying a court order prohibiting him from occupying the official seat of Kyabazinga.
Christopher Kubai, the South Eastern Regional police Commander says that they have refused to grant permission to the protestors because Police was given short notice by organizers of the demonstration.
He says Police organizers of the demonstration sent their notification letter to the Police over the weekend when the Inspector General of Police, Kale Kayihura is not in office.
Kubai says that IGP will look at the application tomorrow and decided on whether or not to grant permission to the protestors.

Samuel Gabula the spokesperson of the Busoga Bulaile Association that has organized the demonstration says they are ready to demonstrate with or without Police permission, to send a strong message that the election of Wambuzi, is illegal.
Gabula wants Wambuzi to vacate the official seat of the Kyabazinga so that fresh elections for a new King are held.
Farouk Mujomba, who is opposed to Columbus Wambuzi, says that they will demonstrate to show their dissatisfaction with the election of W Wambuzi.

Edward Columbus Wambuzi was elected as Kyabazinga in October last year as heir to his late father Wako Muloki, but two royal chiefs dismissed the elections as illegal.
David Kawunhe Wakhooli, the Isabalangira of Busoga and Fred Menhya of Bugweri petitioned the constitutional court to nullify, Wambuzi's election as illegal.
