“I don’t encourage the Bamba tribe to fight the Bakonzo because they were born in this district. The Bakonzo are your children and Ugandans, then why do you attack each other?

Parents don’t allow your children to attack their colleagues because they are losing their lives in the process,” said president.

The attacks are said to be tribal but police boss Gen Kale Kayihura recently said the acts were committed by militia groups.
