Similar attack are to be in Busiro East, Masaka Municipality and other areas . Goons were ferried into the constituency and deployed at my remote village in Bukerere Ward with stones,clubs and pangas….these deadly goons had been instructions to kill Nambooze,” Nambooze stated in a Facebook post on Saturday.

“The residents of the area innocently organised a big meeting with a group of dancer comprising of the children under our care. Without noticing that I was surrounded I got up to address my people from the rooftop of my car. As soon as I stood up stones, stated landing with two of them hitting me on the left arm and the other on the neck. The next minutes the goons beat up my people, smashed my car screen. My team which was caught unaware moved to protect me and fight back. Well we have sustained injuries lost property but we shall not back out.”

Nambooze further added that in the course of the event, they managed to capture the head of the goons who told them about the alleged plan to use hooligans to fight NUP in Buganda region.This is not the first time Nambooze is surviving an attack from unknown people.

This attack comes just barely a month when she was attacked by armed assailants who wanted to finish her off. Nambooze was trailed by attackers while on her way to Mukono after attending NBS TV’s Barometer political show.

In a post, the legislator said that while in Ntinda, men driving in two premios threw a stone towards her car and minutes later they opened fire at them.

She noted that if it was not her brave driver who acted smart and raced off the car, probably she would have been killed.
