The internet was thrown into shock yesterday 19th October 2021 when Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze revealed how she had been attacked by unknown assassins in her bedroom.
It wasn’t clear what these assailants wanted but the MP survived as she narrated in a Facebook video she posted while crying.
“Banna Uganda, today this morning you almost lost me …Assassin in my bedroom alone…But he gave me chance to say my last prayer…this time, I don’t know how I have survived……
For now that is all I can say…. thank you Lord,” Nambooze posted on her Facebook page.
This saw her party leader Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu take to the same platform to sympathize with her.
“I have learnt with shock about an attempt on the life of Hon Betty Nambooze Bakireke by machete wielding attackers who held her hostage in her bedroom in the wee hours of today morning. I’m comforted, however by the fact that save for the terrifying experience, Hon. Nambooze survived without any serious physical injuries,” Bobi Wine posted.
The former Kyadondo east legislator added that he had spoken with Nambooze over the phone and hoped the authorities would do their duty diligently concerning this matter.
“I spoke to Hon. Nambooze earlier in the day and deeply empathized with her and her family about the incident. I pray that they find the strength they need to recover from it. We hope that concerned authorities will investigate this matter to it’s logical conclusion and bring the attackers to book,” Bobi Wine added.
