According to the letter dated 25th June 2020 addressed to the minister for Bunyoro affairs, Prime minister Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom and other district leaders, for over a decade, pledges made to Bunyoro Kitara kingdom, groups and the communities in general have never been fulfilled.
They include the establishment of a public university in the kingdom, clearance of the unpaid veterans’ gratuity and welfare, position of the first deputy prime minister and Shs. 100 Million pledge to the Kabalega education fund.
Others include demand for considering the ministry of Bunyoro affairs as a fully fledged ministry with a budget, scholarships per district in Bunyoro sub region among others.
Geoffrey Sunday, the chairperson of the group claims that they have without success taken different avenues to realize the pledges.
