KAMPALA Central MP Erias Lukwago has asked the Inspector General of Government, Kale Kayihura, to clarify on media reports that the Police have a list of wanted politicians from Buganda.
Lukwago has also asked for personal security, citing threats to his life from unknown callers using a landline 0414-572845.
The request is contained in a September 14 letter to Kayihura. Lukwago alleged that he received death threats on his mobile phone on Monday.
He said when he asked the caller to identify himself, he responded, â€œWhether you hide or run away, we shall kill you. We are tired of your kamanyiiro (disrespect).â€™ Just wait for your live bullets. Tutawawuuwa (Swahili for we shall kill you.â€
Lukwago called on the Police to investigate the matter, adding: â€œI feel my life is in danger.â€ He also denied involvement in last weekâ€™s city riots.
But Edward Ochom, the Criminal Investigation Department director, yesterday dismissed Lukwagoâ€™s claims, saying: â€œI think Lukwago is a haunted man. If you are not guilty consciousness, why do you panic?â€
