Kabarole district council has rescinded the motion banning the singing of the Tooro Kingdom anthem at council events and schools in the district.
The decision came after the District LC V Chairperson, Richard Rwabuhinga, informed the council that the land dispute that led to the banning of the Kingdom anthem had been resolved peacefully.
Rwabuhinga told the council on Wednesday that among their resolutions was that the construction of the district headquarters goes on as planned.
Rwabuhinga also informed council that they had already handed over the construction site for the headquarters to Plantek Consults to do the designs.
As a result, Peter Bazira, the Kicwamba Sub County councillor who moved the motion to ban the anthem said there was no need of maintaining the ban yet their demands had been met.
Tom Kamara, the Busoro Sub County councillor, seconded the motion to lift the ban on the kingdom anthem, saying it would be unfair to maintain it yet the land dispute has been resolved.
The councilors agreed that they must sing the anthem on their next council sitting.
Kabarole district council had banned the singing of Tooro Kingdom after the Kingdom authorities allegedly grabbed their land and deny the institution a chance to construct the district Headquarters in Busoro Sub County.
The motion was moved by Peter Bazira the District Councilor Kicwamba, seconded by Timothy Ruhweza and overwhelmingly supported by the entire district council.
