The Kampala Capital City Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has relayed fears stemming from threats that he is reportedly receiving from Minister Christopher Kabuye Kyofatogabye.
According to the Lord Mayor, Hon. Kyofatogabye is mooting plans to finish off his life following their disagreement on the dilapidated state of roads in the city.
Lukwago who spoke to the Physical Infrastructure Committee yesterday revealed that he has been receiving threats via SMS from the Minister for Kampala Kyofatogabye.
“I did not want to raise this here but when a whole minister sent me threats, I knew things were now getting serious. I have here with me an SMS message from the State Minister for Kampala Kyofatogabye. It really came as a shocker to me. He had never sent me a message before but this time round, he sent me one,” Lukwago said.
Lukwago displayed the message which reads, “Lord Mayor, when shall you stop useless wars? I am the minister and you are the Lord Mayor. Are you not comfortable with your position? I am ready to fight to the end and you know me when I decide to fight. My brother, learn to always sieve certain things and end useless wars.”
The Lord Mayor appealed to Parliament for immediate response on the matter.
“This is a very serious matter. This is getting out of hand and that is why I am concerned. Tomorrow, you will see bullets raining on me and you don’t know the reason. I would like Parliament to pick interest in this matter,” he appealed.
