Former Leader of Opposition in Parliament, also Kasese woman MP, Winnie Kiiza has raised an alarm over armed people she claims are targeting to kill her husband, Yokasi Bihande.
Kiiza took to her Facebook page on Sunday to reveal that her upcountry home in Kasese was surrounded by armed people whom. She said they were waylaying her husband to shoot him.
“As I am posting this message, again, nine armed men in millitary uniform have sorrounded our house again in Kiburara Kasese. All of them armed to the teeth with machine guns and RPGs (Rocket Propelled Grenades),” Kiiza wrote on her Facebook on Sunday night.
She stated that “two armed men spent the night in my compound in Kasese, waiting for my husband to come home and they shoot him”.
But a friend had tipped them and he (husband) did not go home that Friday night.
“Please pray for me and my family,” the legislator wrote.
She says that a similar situation has been around her Kampala residence in the last few weeks.
“Whoever they are after, God is watching. And whoever is in charge of this scheme, it must be put on record that I and my family are Ugandan citizens who are entitled to all citizenry rights”.
“I don’t know whether my husband will be alive by morning,” she added.
Her revelation comes at a time when there’s increasing concern about security in the country following an assassination of former Police officer, Muhammad Kirumira.
Kiiza becomes the fourth MP to raise an alarm relating to a possible killing. Three other legislators, including Gerald Karuhanga, William Nzoghu and Connie Galiwango Nakayenze have in recent weeks publicly revealed that they live in fear following threats on their lives from unknown people.
