Several opposition leaders including former presidential candidate Dr Kizza Besigye and Democratic Party president Norbert Moa have sent their condolences and condemned the manner in which Arua Municapality MP Ibrahim Abiriga and his bodyguard were killed yesterday.
Much as Abiriga was from the ruling National Resistance Movemnet and one of the initiators of the proposal to removal age limit cap that bars anyone above 75 from standing for presidency, Dr Besigye, Mao, Kampala mayor Erias Lukwago, Dr Abed Bwanika have come out to condemn his killing.
Dr Besigye tweeted describing the incident as tragic adding that Uganda’s state of insecurity has reached a point of not segregating among the people.
“TRAGIC! Uganda’s insecurity affects upper &bottom rungs of society equally and brutally! Security systems are clearly dysfunctional. A new start necessary. My thoughts and prayers go to Hon Abiriga’s family, relatives &friends,” he sid.
Meanwhile, Mao also condemned the murder of Abiriga saying his death was shocking to the country.
“I convey my sincere condolences to his family, the parliament of Uganda and the entire country. Here is a man who spoke straight and what you saw was what you got. I condemn this murder,” Mr Mao tweeted.
