Battle for Bugwere Throne: MP Kinobere denies Kingdom has a King, accuses aspirants of self-interest

Bugwere, (UG): In a heated controversy that has gripped Bugwere since November 2023, Hon Kinobere Hebert, the Member of Parliament for Kibuku County has vehemently denied the existence of a King in Bugwere Kingdom accusing aspirants of making false claims to the throne to satisfy their interests.

The outspoken lawmaker says the motivations of such naysayers are rooted in personal interests rather than a genuine commitment to the kingdom’s welfare.

Throughout the past few months, Hon Kinobere has used various platforms, including burials and public functions, to challenge and refute any assertions of Bugwere having a legitimate king.

According to him, the kingdom remains without a ruler, and anyone purporting to be the rightful king is, in reality, seeking personal gain.

In his relentless pursuit to debunk royal claims, Hon Kinobere spared no words in accusing the interested parties of seeking a throne solely for survival. He went on to allege that some individuals among the claimants were motivated by a desire for power, asserting that the Bugwere Kingdom, in fact, has no vacancy for a king.

The fiery parliamentarian further argued that those involved have no concrete plans for the kingdom’s betterment but are instead exploiting the situation for personal gain.

No Plans for the Kingdom:

In a scathing criticism, Hon Kinobere emphasized that the contenders for the throne lack genuine intentions for the development and prosperity of Bugwere Kingdom. He accused them of being mere opportunists, utilizing the royal dispute as a means to secure resources for their personal survival.

The Member of Parliament stressed that Bugwere Kingdom needs leaders with a sincere commitment to its people and development. He urged the community to be wary of individuals vying for the throne merely as a means of ensuring their own survival, rather than dedicated leaders ready to address the needs and challenges facing the kingdom.

Ongoing Controversy:

The Bugwere royal dispute has caused a stir among the community, with differing opinions on the legitimacy of the claims. As Hon Kinobere Hebert continues to challenge the existence of a king, the Bugwere community remains divided, awaiting further clarification on the leadership status and the resolution of the ongoing controversy surrounding the Bugwere Kingdom throne.

The throne fell vacant after the death of the Ikumbania (King) His Highness Dr. Bishop John Chrysostom Wayabire who succumbed to COVID-19 in 2021.
