An MP from the Buganda Kingdom, Issa Kikungwe, was arrested in church yesterday. At least 21 people died in two days of violence, which subsided after the Buganda King called off his visit. He had planned to tour Kayunga region, some of whose residents say they are not part of his kingdom.
The police tried to prevent the visit, fearing violence but their moves angered supporters of King Ronald Muwenda Mutebi, who fought with security forces in the capital, Kampala.
Four radio stations were closed down after the government accused them of inciting violence. Reports say the city has now returned to normaky. Seven more people have died in hospital over the weekend. The police have denied accusations that they overreacted to the protests.
Eyewitnesses say several of those killed were shot by security forces. But Police Chief, Maj Gen Kale Kayihura, said some of the rioters had also used guns.Source: BBC NEWS - BBC News
