Obusinga Bwa Rwenzururu Cabinet Ministers intending to join active politics given up to June to have resigned


Obusinga Bwa Rwenzururu has given her Cabinet Ministers who intend to vie for the various political positions in the 2026 General Elections an ultimatum of up to June this year to have declared their intentions and subsequently resign from their offices in the cultural institution.

Rt. Hon. Joseph Kule Kighoma Muranga, the Kingdom’s Prime Minister says the ultimatum follows a directive by Omusinga Charles Wesley Mumbere Iremangoma instructing him to ask the current serving Ministers declare their political interests so that the cultural institution determines her administrative team now and forward.

A letter dated January 14, 2024, signed by the Omusinga himself and addressed to the Prime Minister, indicates that the Ministers intending to participate in active politics must act proactively and avoid mixing politics in the Obusinga Bwa Rwenzururu.

While speaking to our reporter today afternoon at his Mukirane Street based office in Kasese town, Rt. Hon. Muranga confirmed to our reporter that at least five of his Cabinet Ministers have submitted to him resignation letters seeking to be set free from the Kingdom’s activities while others are still reporting to him verbally and promising to officially write to him. 

He, however, did not disclose the names of the five Ministers that have so far tendered in their resignation letters, pledging to avail a full list to the public when the whole exercise has been completed.

The Kingdom’s Premier also called upon the Ministers that have not yet declared their political intentions and yet they know they are planning to join active politics in the 2026 General Elections to do the needful as early as possible in an attempt to avoid mixing politics in the cultural institutions.

He, on the other hand, revealed that the Ministers who would participate in active politics and fail to go through might be recalled to serve in case of any opportunity.
