Kampala: The vice chairman of the committee of Parliament on Islamic Banking, Nelson Lufafa is demanding from the state an explanation as to ‘why the Pearl of Africa has turned into a butcher for its people.’
Lufafa who is also the Butembe County legislator posted a very tough message on his Facebook wall last night after the news of the brutal and heartless murder of Arua Munucipality MP, Col Ibrahim Abiriga spread.
Abriga a member of the ruling NRM party was gunned down on Friday at about 6:30pm at Matugga off Bombo Road as he headed home.
“Hon Abiriga ‘ s murder has come at a time when previous reports of similar murders are yet to be known. We have to swallow our pride and admit that none of us is safe and fix what has gone wrong! We now live in a country where kidnaps and murder have become the order of the day. The Pearl of Africa is at stake,” says Lufafa.
“We demand a clear explanation from the state about the security situation in the country and the way forward before none of us will be there to defend our generation and that to come,” he added.
But to the Jinja district NRM chairman, Majid Dhikusooka, ther killers of Abiriga are cowards.
Dhikusooka described Abiriga as an innocent man who did not deserve such death.
“You fools who have have shot Abiriga are cowards. You are so stupid and useless,” lamented Dhikusooka.
Parliament will have a special sitting on Sunday for legislators to pay their last respect.
