In short
Residents of Kagoma village in Kibiito Sub County, Bunyangabu district, have encroached on a key cultural site turning it into farm land. The site is where the first King of Tooro, Kaboyo Olimi I, was buried. Kaboyo Omuhundwa Kasunsunkwanzi Olimi I was the founder of Tooro Kingdom in 1822 when he rebelled against his father, Rukirabasaija Agutamba Nyamutukura Kyebambe III, the Omukama of Bunyoro-Kitara at that time.
