Mr Kimbowa says he decided to forward the matter to the office of the Kabale District Police Commander and Kabale Resident District Commissioner.

Bishop Bakashaba on the other hand says he was shocked to hear that the venue he paid Shs 1.4million to hire was being rented out for another function.

He says he never received any communication from Kabale Municipality authorities concerning the changes, and vowed to proceed with the revival conference.

Dickens Bindeba, the Kabale District Police Commander says his office is aware of the issue and that he is planning on meeting the fighting parties.
