Justus Tugume, an independent candidate for the Kilak North parliamentary set in Amuru district has expressed fear for his life after receiving a life-threatening letter at his home in Atiak Sub County. 

The authors of the anonymous letter that was dumped at the candidate’s resident on Tuesday last week ask him to step down from the race, saying that he is too young to lose his life because of politics.

They instead advise him to use the little resources to organize the last funeral rites for his late father other than spending the money on campaigns.

Tugume told URN that he now feels unsafe especially while campaigning especially after several candidates in other parts of the country are dying under unclear circumstances.
