The High court in Mbarara has ordered for fresh attempts to mediate in a case against self-proclaimed Ankole king Umar Asiimwe Rubambansi.
Mediation in the case on June 13 flopped after the complainants in the case failed to show up. Mediation is part of the court process in the matter that was filed at Mbarara High court by Phillip Musiime seeking to halt activities of Asiimwe.
Asiimwe has for close to three years been operating a palace at Itaaba, Rwampara county and has hosted several guests who pay homage to him.
But Musiime dragged him to court saying that he is not the right crown prince of Ankole. Musiime says that the crown prince of Ankole is the late John Barigye a son of Rwebishengye.
Court advised the two parties to settle the matter through mediation. The mediation process was to be handled by arbitrator Suwaya Matovu.
Matovu says that he had decided to suspend the arrangements to have dialogue up to when the two parties are willing to come to a round-table.
