Katali of Kakumiro but based in Hoima said, “The people of Bisaka should be stopped from their contempt, if we do not stop them, they are coming to the Kingdom.

However, spokesperson of the Kingdom asked the people of Bunyoro to keep peace, the Kingdom needs peace, but government should take action on people’s concerns, “They have heard and felt people’s feelings as they have been speaking, the phone calls can explain the anger the people of Bunyoro are harboring”.
