Two security guards have been deployed to guard Mbale Woman Member of Parliament Connie Nakayenze Galiwango.  The move follows death threats contained in a letter that was dropped at her residence in Butaleja cell, Masaba ward, in Mbale Municipality.    

Initial reports indicated that unidentified people dropped a letter at her home on Thursday, demanding 400 million Shillings, failure of which, she would be killed. According to the letter, the money was to be sent to a mobile phone number 0780723011 which is registered in the names of Moses Namisi.  

Elgon Region Police Spokesperson John Robert Tukei told journalists that they got instructions from Internal Affairs Minister Gen Jeje Odongo to improve the legislator's security.

Cue out… when they are two.”//

However, Connie Nakayenze told URN that she was hesitant on taking up the police officers whom they have deployed because the DPC has refused to return one of the officers who were guarding her previously.

She said that she has reported several cases to police with no action, and questions why the DPC is now dictating which officers should form part of her security detail.  She fears that the police is being used by her political opponents to compromise her security.

Nakayenze says that unidentified people have been trailing her both in Kampala and Mbale since 2017 when she voted against a move to lift the cap on the presidential age from the constitution.
