KAMPALA – Kanungu district woman Member of Parliament (MP) Elizabeth Kalungi who was recently dragged to court for allegedly poisoning a Parliamentary receptionist over love affairs has in a live radio broadcast fired back, describing the said woman as “Malaya”, “stupid” and a “useless” receptionist.
Ms Kalungi made the contemptible remarks in a telephone interview with a local FM station on Tuesday this week as she was called to comment on the allegations that she masterminded a plan to poison a Parliament receptionist and a third year Makerere university student Ms Donna Kamuli.
The MP responded that “she [Kamuli Donna] is just a receptionist here [Parliament]. She is a very useless girl.
The MP denied the allegations saying Ms Kamuli just wants to only extort money.
“I think somebody talked to her and told her that she is missing the opportunity for money. That is why she went to the media and then the lawyer to draft expecting to get a call from me. I said I will not give you anything, you are very stupid,” she further said.
Kalungi revealed that she already has a co-wife and she would have killed the co instead of a “Malaya” (Kamuli) from Parliament.
“Can you imagine I have my co-wife? I would have killed that one. Now, this Malaya what would I be looking for, in her really?” noted Kalungi.
According to the court documents filed before the High Court civil division, Ms Kamuli accuses the MP through a waitress on September 1, 2018, of administering a poison called deltamethrin and cyprodinil through a packed water bottle labelled “Rwenzori for Café’ Pap’.
Ms. Kamuli narrates that on August 31, 2018, Ms Karungi called her suggesting that they meet at cafe Pap restaurant to have a woman to woman talk, however, Kamuli promised to call back since she was attending a party and had to postpone their meeting to the next day.
That while there; the legislator narrated to Kamuli of how her husband Allan Kamugisha is seeing a fairly young brown lady whom he picks from a hostel in Makerere Kikoni and drops her at Parliament every day.
Kamuli contends that the MP disclosed to her that she had put a price of Shs 20 million and had a balance of Shs 60million for people to trail and kill that young woman who is destabilizing her marriage.
“I was so shocked and froze and could not drink the water anymore although at that time I had drunk half the bottle,” Kamuli says.
Kamuli adds that she immediately after taking the water, experienced untold stomach ache prompting her to carry out a thorough medical checkup and examination at the Government analytical laboratory and the findings showed that a pesticide -Deltamethrin was administered in her drink.
Now through her lawyers of Rwakafuuzi and Company Advocates, Ms Kamuli wants Ms. Kalungi to pay her damages, compensatory and punitive and costs of the suit for causing permanent damage to her intestines, eyes and the entire nervous system because according to medical orders the poisonous substance detected in (Kamuli’s) body has no cure.
Sources at Parliament confirmed that the institution will refund all the expenses Kamuli made including flying her to Europe for further medical examinations
