The home of former East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) Speaker Margaret Zziwa in Matugga, Wakiso District has been attacked today by three men.
Though the motive of their attack is yet to be known, police says the men raided the home between 01:00 and 2:00am.
When police officers deployed to guard the home saw the intruders, they intervened prompting two to take off.
The one who remained behind apparently attacked police with a hammer, and according to Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson Emilian Kayima, one of the guards shot the man in self defence.
The man, who has been identified as Musa Karenge, died as he was being rushed to hospital for medical attention.
Zziwa, who is married to politician Edward Francis Babu, was elected Speaker of EALA in 2011 but was impeached in December 2014 after members of the Assembly accused her of inappropriate conduct.
However, in February this year the East African Court of Justice ruled that her suspension and impeachment were illegitimate.
