KAMPALA – The Prime Minister of Uganda Rt. Hon Robinah Nabbanja has said her life is in danger after getting ‘threats’ relating to her method of work, which calls for quality service delivery in the OPM office.
Speaking to Journalists at parliament on Friday, Nabbanja said a certain woman she describes as a ‘messenger’ from Kampala had approached her brother in Kakumiro district questioning Nabbanja’s style of work.
“This woman studied with my brother at Makerere so when she reached my village, she told my brother what has brought me here, is, first of all, you are my friend, we studied together, but what does your sister want and he told her I want quality service delivery, that is all.”
Not taking the issue lightly, Nabbanja said she was in the process of petitioning President Yoweri Museveni, over the matter.
“I don’t take that lightly, I will inform my boss, the Head of State that if anybody can drive from Kampala, up to Kakumiro, to look for my brother and ask him what this woman wants, I can’t take that lightly,” she said.
The threats come just days after on Thursday last week, Nabbanja rejected an assortment of relief items donated to flood victims in the Kasese district saying they were substandard.
In a video that has since gone viral, Nabbanja during her visit to the mountainous district rejected a truckload of beans, blankets, and mosquito nets because they were substandard.
Today she told Journalists at Parliament that she has directed relevant government agencies to investigate the said procurement.
“I wrote to the Permanent Secretary directing him on the following. One, I want to know who the contractors were, I want a report. Two, which officer was responsible for the purchase of such substandard items, three how much was it and they gave me a report yesterday and I was not satisfied. So I asked for further investigation into the matter. That’s where we are, I have involved IGG, Police and the Anti-Corruption Unit,” Nabbanja said.
