Kampala Minister Beti Olive Kamya has said she is scared for her life after a letter containing death threats was sent to her.
“Some one wishes you dead and takes the trouble to make a list and distribute it,” she told NTV on Thursday.
“I’m bothered because there have been many murders in Kampala. Death comes to us all.”
She asked police to tighten her security, explaining that “the fact that death is a prerogative of God doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t take precautions”.

“I try to go home very early, I don’t go out and I don’t put myself at unnecessary risks,” she further told NTV.
Kamya pleaded with her potential murderers to give her a reason why they want her dead.
“I am doing something displeasing, maybe I can correct it or apologise,” she added.
She had earlier addressed press advising Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) to suspend the operation to break unauthorised buildings.
