The NRM National Chairman Yoweri Museveni has expressed his condolences to the family members of the late Col. Ibrahim Abiriga, Member of Parliament for Arua Municipality, who was shot dead last evening as he returned home in Kawanda in Wakiso District.
The National Chairman of the ruling NRM government, who visited the family members this morning in Kawanda, Nansana Municipality in Wakiso district, to express his condolences, reiterated to the people of Uganda that the perpetrators that killed MP Abiriga, will be brought to book by the Government to answer for their heinous actions. The NRM National Chairman Yoweri said that the killing of Abiriga is a clear sign that there are people who are fighting the NRM Party.
“Abiriga has been a staunch NRM supporter so by killing him they think they have killed the NRM Party. By killing Abiriga, the enemy is clearly working to hurt NRM,” he said. He said that they have killed Abiriga by acting in a cowardly manner because in the multiparty system, everybody has got his freedom to support any political party he wants.
