The Kasunga 8 Leaders Retreat
The kasunga Leaders Retreat is an annual gathering of leaders across the Rwenzori Region that was initiated by KRC in 2006-mainly to bring together leaders who had had an acrimonious campaign in the 2006 elections. The Retreat was also meant to diffuse the tensions in Tooro kingdom. The Retreat has since grown mileage as it now brings together over 200 leaders drawn from Political, Civil, cultural, and Religious spheres. Kasunga 8 comes against the backdrop of a very successful Kasunga 7,that brought together so many leaders, including the heads of the Bamba and Konzo communities which had just recovered from the ugly July 14 altercations. The event will take place in April 2017
