Norman Lukumu, the Bunyoro Kitara kingdom prime mister in contention has vowed not to serve as the Bunyoro prime minister again unless irregularities in the Bunyoro Kitara kingdom are sorted out.
Lukumu said this yesterday evening while addressing journalists at his home in Kisita cell Masindi municipality.
He says he cannot continue working in a situation where every person is issuing letters baring a seal and stamp of the king. He added that he is not fighting for the position of the prime minister but regretting what is happening in the kingdom
He noted that he has been receiving letters from the king recalling him to the office but he cannot go back there due to the confusion prevailing in the palace. He added that even the king has been going to his home requesting him to report to the office noting that he cannot risk following the letters which are coming from different corners baring King’s signature and the stamp.
Norman Lukumu was appointed prime minister in 2015 and sacked in January 2018 .In January this year the Omukama, Solomon Iguru, appointed Andrew Byakutaga, as the new prime minister but Lukumu rushed to Masindi high court to challenge his sacking where his application was dismissed.
Last week a letter signed by Omukama, Solomon Iguru, and witnessed by the principal judge Yorokamu Bamwine was issued from the Kingdom, recalling Lukumu to resume his duties as the kingdom prime minister.
However, a few days later, the King disowned the letter, saying he had been misled by the Kingdom speaker Jos Wamara.
Lukumu the prime mister in contention said that he has never taken part in forging any letter recalling him back to his job as people are saying noting that he was called by the principal judge, Yorokamu Bamwine in Kampala to witness the letter recalling him back to office.
Lukumu also dismissed allegations that he has been taking part in issuing fake letters in the kingdom baring the seal and the signature of the king noting that people who have been behind the act are well known.
