Police beefs up security for Mbale Woman MP after death threats

BY: Eyalama In Business On

security guards have been deployed to guard Mbale Woman MP Connie Nakayenze Galiwango. The move follows death threats contained in a letter leaflet that was dropped at her residence in Butaleja cell, Masaba ward, in Mbale Municipality.

Initial reports indicated that unidentified people dropped a letter at her home on Thursday, demanding Shs 400 million, failure of which, she would be killed. According to the letter, the money was to be sent to a mobile phone number 0780723011 which is registered in the name of Moses Namisi.

Elgon Region Police spokesperson John Robert Tukei told journalists that they got instructions from Internal Affairs minister Gen Jeje Odongo to heighten the legislator’s security.

However, Nakayenze told URN that she was hesitant on taking up the police officers whom they have deployed because the DPC has refused to return one of the officers who were guarding her previously.

She said that she has reported several cases to police with no action, and questions why the DPC is now dictating which officers should form part of her security detail. She fears that the police is being used by her political opponents to compromise her security.

Nakayenze says that unidentified people have been trailing her both in Kampala and Mbale since 2017 when she voted against a move to lift the cap on the presidential age from the Constitution.
