In their civil suit number 343 of 2021 filed through their lawyers of M/s Ngaruye Ruhindi, Spenser & Company Advocates, the petitioners argue that ever since Mugisha was consecrated Bishop in August 2007, he has never bothered to establish a diocesan constitution as provided for under article 4 of the church of Uganda provincial constitution.
According to Captain Peter Mugisha, Kisoro Resident District Commissioner, the suspects were arrested during a security search on all Congolese refugees still camping at Nyakabande refugees transit center, following intelligence information the rebels are disguising to be refugees.
The suspect, identified as Hussein Mbabazi Turinayezu, a resident of Munengwe village in Kibitoki county, Burundi, was arrested on Wednesday while attempting to board a Bismirkan bus from Kisoro, an area that shares a boundary with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the Republic of Rwanda in South-Western Uganda
There was heavy fighting in the villages of Chanzu and Runyoni in Rutshuru, about 25 kilometres from the border with Uganda forcing thousands of Congolese nationals in the affected area to flee into Uganda through Bunagana and other porous borders in Kisoro district.
Elly Maate, the Kigezi Region Police Spokesperson says that some Congolese have started crossing back to their country. According to Maate, the Congolese crossed back to their country, after Congolese security officials in Rutshuru, announced that the army had recaptured Chanzu and Runyoni last night.
Elly Maate, police spokesperson for Kigezi region says that by 07:00 PM on Monday evening, more Congolese nationals were still crossing. He also admits that though everything is under control, the security situation at the border is very tense.
He says that they have been told that the fighting started last night with a rebel group they suspect to be M23. Sounds of gunfire can be heard about five kilometres inside DRC, an indication that fighting is still ongoing.

Martin Habana’bakiza, the Chairperson of Uganda Nurses’ Association Kisoro branch who led the protest, said that much as President, Yoweri Museveni approved the increment of the nurses’ lunch allowances to Shillings 15,000 each day and their assistants Shillings 10,000, nurses in Kisoro are yet to benefit.
While the Kisoro district Chairman says security officers sent by the RDC shot at him, the Kisoro District Police Commnader says the officers only dispersed rowdy drunkards who included Chairman Bizimana who were abusing curfew and violating the presidential directive on bars remaining closed to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Passing of the resolution created a public uproar especially by environment and tourism activists condemning the act and arguing that the resolution compromises nature and a tourism asset, and accused councilors of passing a resolution with a hidden agenda of greed to grab many of the stalls in the modern market.
During the council session that was held on Friday at Virunga Hotel, Municipality Mayor, Richard Ndyana explained that the Production and Marketing Committee which sat on 16th this month resolved to have the market constructed at the Mayor's gardens because the land is enough and strategic.
