MUBENDE —Mr. Saadi Ssemaganda, a man who was allegedly shot by Kassanda South MP Simeo Nsubuga’s bodyguard has fled his home after receiving death threats from unknown people.
Speaking to PML Daily on weekend, Ssemaganda who is still recovering from life-threatening injuries said he was threatened with murder.
“I was threatened with murder. My life was in danger. The threats scared me,” he told this reporter on the weekend.
“I wasn’t comfortable living there anymore and that is why I left.”
“And please am not comfortable telling you all these things. Please don’t call me,” he added before discounting the conversation.
Security personnel attached to MP Nsubuga allegedly shot Ssemaganda, who was a guard at the city businessman Abid Alam’s farm located in Nalutuntu Sub County.
It is alleged that Mr. Nsubuga had convened a meeting in the area to forge a way forward on the impending eviction of over 500 families occupying a seven-square-mile piece of land in the area.
The Wamala Regional Police Spokesperson Norbert Ochom confirmed that Ssemaganda and other people logged a case at Kassanda Central Police Station accusing the MP and his bodyguard of attempted murder.
He said Police are still investigating the allegations.
Ssemaganda claimed that he didn’t receive any support from police, even after showing them evidence hence fleeing the region.
Ssemaganda also decried little support by the media saying that he was shot but many journalists declined to report about the incident because the case involved prominent government officials.
“You see I was shot in May, and you journalists decided to stay away from me. Now I am recovering and you’re starting to call. Stay away from me,” he said citing personal security.
MP Nubuga wasn’t available for comment.
