There is a vacuum in Toro Kingdom following the absence of King Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru from the kingdom.
In July, King Oyo traveled to the United Kingdom to join university without appointing regents who will administer the kingdom on his behalf.
Chapter Nine of the Toro Kingdom constitution states that when the King is out of his kingdom for more than three months, he should appoint regents who will administer the Kingdom on his behalf.
The absence of the King or any of his representatives has affected some operations of the Kingdom.
Last week, the Kingdom Parliament failed to convene because the representative of the King Oyo was not present to open it. It is a tradition in Toro Kingdom that the King or his representative should open the kingdom parliament.
William Nyakatura, the Prime Minister Toro Kingdom says that he can not perform the duties of the King because he is restricted by the kingdom constitution.
Nyakatura says that regents should have been appointed because currently, there is no person he can consult on kingdom matters.
He also says that some of the recommendations that were made by the kingdom cabinet and parliament have not been implemented because there are no regents appointed.
Some of the recommendations include increase in the fees of leasing out kingdom land and increase in the number of representatives in the kingdom parliament.
Nyakatura however says that he is optimistic that regents will soon be appointed.
In April King Oyo turned 18 years and assumed full authority over his kingdom. Prior to that, three regents were appointed to administer the Kingdom on his behalf because he was still a minor.
