Minister Persis Namuganza Survives Assassination Attempt By A Whisker

The State Minister for Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Hon Persis Namuganza became the most recent government official that almost got claimed by assailants.

The Bukono County MP in fact survived death by a whisker. According to the information relayed by the Minister, yet to be known assailants almost killed her on Wednesday 21, 2022 at around 7pm.

The incident happened along Bukoto traffic lights on the Ntinda-Wandegeya road. These suspected assailants hit her car with an unidentified object. According to the Minister, these assailants specifically targeted her window. And their plan was to finish her off.

She further revealed that these were using a motorcycle. They decided to take advantage of the cars stopping at the traffic lights. Namuganza said that her guards quickly swung into action firing bullets but couldn’t hit them.

She also applauded the onlookers who made an alarm that prompted these assailants to flee. The other motor road users also tried to knock these goons but nothing could be done to apprehend them.

Police at Kira also responded quickly in trying to nab the reported assailants but were unsuccessful.

She’s however already recorded a statement with the Kira Road Police station. They are also trying to analyze the CCTV cameras to pick up something useful.

Namuganza went ahead to reveal that she’s been receiving such threats which she has proceeded to report to her boss, President Museveni and the Police.

It’s not yet clear who was behind this attempt and the intent. However, she becomes the second government official and MP within a space of just a month to report assassination attempts on her life. The other is the current speaker of Parliament, Hon Anita Among.

Surprisingly, the two are involved in some bitter row with different accusations circulating they are trying to pull each other down.
