Meanwhile a section of Batooro has threatened to boycott the royal wedding ceremony over land wrangles in Tooro kingdom between the Queen mother Best Kemigisa and the Batooro .
This comes after one Andrew Irumba accused Kemigisa of selling 100 acres on Block 44 in Kibito, Bunyangabo in Fort Portal to Uganda Land Commission (ULC) at Shs 5b, which he claims was sold to his father Augustine Irumba (RIP), by the late Toro King Olimi Kaboyo. This resulted into the forceful eviction of sitting tenants from this land recently.
