Explosive devices were Monday night thrown at the homes of Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi and Makindye West MP Allan Ssewanyana.

Bobi Wine says this is the second time in two days been grenades have been thrown at his house and exploded.

He said property was damaged but no one hurt. “But what kind of country are we now living in?”

Bobi Wine said he had decided to ignore the blasts and the threats, but it seems they are now getting real.

“Let me announce to the whole world that these past days I have been receiving death threats on an almost daily basis.”

He adds: “I have also been advised by some friends who know more than I know that I should be very careful what I eat or drink, how I drive and from where, whom I meet, even who touches me while I go to Parliament.”

He said apparently something could have been done to him during the kind of scuffle that happened when state agents invaded the Parliamentary chamber.

“Reason? Opposing the removal of age limits in the Constitution! Anonymous calls targeting not only me but my family as well. I have been told that if I don’t leave that thing a lone, I will just be terminated or disabled.”

He condemned the cowardly acts urging all people of good conscience to do the same.

“We are not involved in war. We are just citizens who are interested in a good country for ourselves and the generations to come. We shall not be intimidated.”

He went on: “Let them know that nothing can stop an idea whose time has come. If you kill one me, perhaps a thousand more will rise up. The world is watching!”

Ssewanyana also attacked

In the same night, grenades were thrown at the home of Ssewanyana.

People have thrown a grenade/explosive at my home 1:20pm……need some rescue,” Ssewanyana posted on Facebook.

He added: “I’m told the same has happened to Hon Kyagulanyi’s home.”

This came just a few days after an explosion rocked Hon Moses Kasibante’s home in Lubaga, Kampala.

Ssewanyana, Bobi Wine and Kasibante are among the MPs thrown out of parliament for opposing to removal of age limit from the constitution.
