Prince David Kijanangoma

Police have warned Tooro kingdom prince, what is ed David Kijanangoma against installing himself as King of the kingdom.

In January while addressing journalists at his Rwengoma palace, Kijanangoma revealed that he would in April this year be crowned replace the youthful King Oyo Nyimba .

Addressing journalists on Monday, police spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi said it is unlawful for one to declare himself king without following the right procedures as provided for in the respective cultures.

“This will be an attempt to overthrow King Oyo and this conduct will not be tolerated. It is illegal and will not be allowed to continue,” Kaweesi told a news conference.

In an interview with Chimpreports in 2015, Kijanangoma, a member of the royal clan, the Babiito and also a son to the late Paul Christopher Kijanangoma said his nephew King Oyo had become a subject  of the Buganda Kabaka by spending more time in Kampala than in his territory

“Oyo has abandoned his palace and opted to stay in Buganda – a foreign kingdom at a time when the kingdom is in a mess. We have engaged our lawyers to go through the legal proceedings and we have already elected the new Tooro Kingdom Parliament. We are just waiting for the date to declare officially and take over the Karuzika (palace) and bring harmony in Tooro Kingdom,” Prince Kijanangoma said.

However, on this, the police mouthpiece said the Tooro Prince has to go through the right procedures other than self enthronement as Toro king.

“We are here to ensure the king and entire kingdom are protected and in case there are leadership wrangles, there should be appropriate means to have them solved.”
